Murfreesboro Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the head, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small space. 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 neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Murfreesboro neck pain with or without arm pain evolves. Most Chiropractic Clinic, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the style of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that documented just how mobilization and manipulation affected patients with neck pain of all types (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 shown to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of Murfreesboro chiropractic care at Most Chiropractic Clinic. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor keeps current on the research-proven ways to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge 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 decreasing disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by joining long-y distraction with range of motion normal to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, and a combination of them all! Murfreesboro neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Most Chiropractic Clinic, Cox® Technic is used. it is the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% drop in pain scores in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain reported relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Murfreesboro neck pain and Murfreesboro arm pain relief.
