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!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
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 CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
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
SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK
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.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
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.
