Does any neck pain sufferer look forward to
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. New
studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Fernandina Beach
neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
is here to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Fernandina Beach back pain are foremost
causes of disability globally and here in Fernandina Beach.
Chiropractic is being related as a safe, helpful
option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few sufferers. Chiropractic is explained as care centered
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting
back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and potentially
via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses.
More research is recommended to determine
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We use spinal manipulation every day at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is demonstrated
to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients seeking relief find that their treatment is heightened
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times greater in those who received care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation reduced the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors
in the United States. (2) Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor delivers
specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain
SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK
As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation,
Cox® Technic flexion distraction, facilitates in relieving
pain, a patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis
who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release,
patient education about adjusting her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic
spine pain and headache frequency. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to give him/her the tools
and understanding to get such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Explaining to chronic nonspecific Fernandina Beach
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain enhances their outcomes. A study comparing
therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education
to help them understand their condition
found that the combination helped more.
The combination reduced the patients’ pain-disability indices,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s
the goal of care for us at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic: reduced pain.
