Neck pain is an everyday
condition bringing patients to
our West Des Moines chiropractic clinic! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa finds
that chronic neck pain is a widespread problem
nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Executive Chiropractic of Iowa
is prepared to help find some neck pain relief with a West Des Moines chiropractic treatment
plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options are plentiful.
One common approach is manual therapy. (Executive Chiropractic of Iowa
uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach
is exercise. A third is combining both. A new
study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself
improved perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise.
Therapeutic exercise lessened disability earlier
than manual therapy. (1) A further study assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise
alone over 4 weeks. Manual therapy with
exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise alone. (2) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa has found
that patient participation boosts clinical outcomes,
too. Using the most effective therapies
for neck pain relief is the better option.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa follows the research.
Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle type
of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In
the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to
exercise only for neck pain to the combination of both
that combining the two was favorable.
(4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased
pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine
radiculopathy patients. (5) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa realizes that
West Des Moines neck pain patients are anxious to help
themselves by doing suggested neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
