Does any neck pain sufferer want to get an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Nope! Recent
studies are showing that receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is delivered by chiropractors - may help such Severna Park
neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Back And Neck Care Center
is ready to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Severna Park back pain are leading
causes of disability globally and here in Severna Park.
Chiropractic is being related as a safe, effective
option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few such
patients. Chiropractic is described as care centered
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is explained as hindering
back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and potentially
via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses.
More research is called upon to determine
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We utilize spinal manipulation every day at Back And Neck Care Center.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown
to decrease the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients seeking relief find that their treatment is heightened
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times higher in those who received care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors
in the United States. (2) Your Severna Park chiropractor uses
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, facilitates in relieving
pain, a case report of a patient with neurofibromatosis
who experienced headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release,
patient education about adjusting her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic
spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Back And Neck Care Center 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
Explaining to chronic nonspecific Severna Park
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain enhances 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 is
the goal of care for us at Back And Neck Care Center: reduced pain.
