Everything has its role. Everything fills
a need. In treating neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization
have their roles in treating the pain,
disability and range of motion loss. They are
needed. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many Fernandina Beach neck
pain sufferers to restore their lost range of motion due to pain.
Stretching is newly found to be particularly
beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan.
BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization,
nutrition, exercise, and research-suggested stretching in the
general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific
mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic utilizes
Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to treat neck
pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered
complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain from
a large C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox®
flexion distraction produced pain reduction
in 13.2 treatments (range 6 to 37). (2) A recent
paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition
of stretching to the plan was more helpful at improving
cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges
of motion without touching pain and
disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization
come into play. They help ease the pain and disability part.
Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is
beneficial and has its role in treating neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another research project further stated
that neck stretching is one of the most effective physical
therapy interventions. Static and
diagonal active stretching were successful at reducing
neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Further,
cervical range of motion values significantly increased
at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study demonstrating
beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain,
disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain
relief studies, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic makes sure to present
benefits of various ways to reduce neck pain.
