Neck pain is a familiar
condition bringing patients into
our Ashburn chiropractic clinic! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees
that chronic neck pain is a widespread problem
today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
is ready to help find some neck pain relief with a Ashburn chiropractic treatment
plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options abound.
One common approach is manual therapy. (Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic
is exercise. A third is combining both. A recent
study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone
improved perceived neck pain sooner than exercise.
Therapeutic exercise reduced disability faster
than manual therapy. (1) An additional study compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise
by itself over 4 weeks. Manual therapy with
exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise by itself. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn has observed
that patient participation boosts clinical outcomes,
too. Using the most effective therapies
for neck pain relief is the way to go.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn goes with the research.
Research revealed that a safe, gentle type
of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine
intradiscal pressures. (3) In
the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to
exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of both
that using both was favorable.
(4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved
pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a report on cervical spine
radiculopathy patients. (5) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn finds that
Ashburn neck pain patients are ready to help
themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
