Severna Park Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer enjoy getting 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 relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

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.
