Murfreesboro Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer enjoy getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. New studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors - may help such Murfreesboro neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Most Chiropractic Clinic is here to help with that!


Neck pain alongside Murfreesboro back pain are foremost causes of disability globally and here in Murfreesboro. Chiropractic is being related as a safe, helpful option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few sufferers. Chiropractic is described as care centered on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is described as hindering back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and possibly via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses. More research is called upon to figure out just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We utilize spinal manipulation every day at Most Chiropractic Clinic.


Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain patients seeking relief find that their treatment is escalated to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such risk was 2.38 times higher in those who got care other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation reduced the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors in the US. (2) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor delivers specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain relief.


As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic flexion distraction, helps relieve pain, a patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation together with myofascial release, patient education about modifying her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools and knowledge to get such relief.


Giving chronic nonspecific Murfreesboro neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain boosts their outcomes. A study comparing therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education to help them understand their condition found that the combination was more helpful. The combination dropped the patients’ pain-disability indices, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s the goal of care for us at Most Chiropractic Clinic: reduced pain.
