Ashburn Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing moving structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the size of the cervical spine canal provided by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may be at play when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Ashburn neck pain with or without arm pain evolves. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the form of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are treatment methods for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that documented just how manipulation and mobilization impacted patients with neck pain of all types (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both improved these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates nerve roots was shown to reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of Ashburn chiropractic care at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn. Your Ashburn chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the optimal ways to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers recognize a couple forms of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were successful in this study for reducing pain, improving range of motion, and decreasing disability related to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, and a combination of them all! Ashburn neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn, Cox® Technic is used. It’s the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy cared for with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% drop in pain scores after a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She was seen in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic blends the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Ashburn neck pain and Ashburn arm pain relief.
