Executive Chiropractic of Iowa appreciates findings of researchers who
really delve into the effects of spinal manipulative treatment protocols. Their
findings direct clinical application. In a collection of research trials that
compared no treatment, placebo, or conventional therapies on pain in patients
with degenerative cervical spine radiculopathy, the results indicate immediate
effectiveness of cervical spine manipulation in treating patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy. (1) According to the Neck Pain Task Force, neck pain is managed
effectively with mobilization, manipulation and clinical massage. Neck pain is
not effectively managed with modalities like electroacupuncture,
strain-counterstrain, relaxation massage, and some passive modalities like heat,
cold, diathermy, hydrotherapy, and ultrasound. (2) So imagine what type of care
a well-educated West Des Moines chiropractor in a well-informed chiropractic
practice like Executive Chiropractic of Iowa will choose to use? Mobilization, manipulation or
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows
that it’s wise to match the type of care to the spinal condition. Now, cervical
radiculopathy with hyperalgesia, allodynia, heaviness in the arm and
non-segmental pain not related to a peripheral spinal nerve may indicate a
central or autonomic nervous system issue for neck pain patients. Therefore, for
such patients, thoracic spine manipulation is a [[sensiblereasonable]6]
approach to relieving their pain especially if
applied early on in their treatment plan. (3) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows that
clinical outcomes come down to timing, application, and experience.
With any medical treatment, risks along with timing, application
and experience must be considered. Chiropractic care presents no excess risk of
carotid artery stroke. Patients with carotid artery dissection may present with
neck pain and or headache before such a stroke which are conditions that often
bring a patient to a chiropractor’s office or a primary care physician’s (PCP) office.
(4) Chiropractors like yours at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa and PCPs are well aware of such
signs and carefully monitor all cervical spine pain patients throughout their
care. And with the Cox Technic offered at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa the
West Des Moines chiropractic care is applied by the physician’s hands, monitoring
all responses throughout the treatment. All motions are smooth and gentle,
West Des Moines chiropractic patients are well informed
and do their due diligence before undergoing any treatment. And Executive Chiropractic of Iowa
has gained a reputation for being the back pain specialty clinic for safe, effective,
and gentle care. Cox Technic is the
treatment of choice. It’s known as “low velocity, low amplitude” or “flexion
distraction” or just “F/D.” However it is named, Cox Technic is mild in its
application as well as well-monitored throughout its use because the
chiropractor is applying the treatment via his or her hands. That’s how it’s
done at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa.
