Richmond Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing moving structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses a variety of important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the size of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other reatures also may influence when there is neck pain, but for this article, we’re looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Richmond neck pain along with neck pain or not evolves. Johnson Chiropractic, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the form of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are treatment methods for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that studied just how mobilization and manipulation influenced patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both enhanced these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates nerve roots was reported to reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic. Your Richmond chiropractor keeps current on the optimal ways to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers recognize a couple types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for reducing pain, improving range of motion, and diminishing disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Johnson Chiropractic strives to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion normal to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Richmond neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Johnson Chiropractic, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s a gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a study of 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% decrease in pain scores in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She had 24 visits over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic blends the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Richmond neck pain and Richmond arm pain relief.
