Ashburn Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

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.


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.


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.
