Does any neck pain sufferer enjoy
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. Recent
studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Pensacola
neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
is here to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Pensacola back pain are leading
causes of disability globally and here in Pensacola.
Chiropractic is being related as a safe, effective
option for management of back and neck pain for many such
patients. Chiropractic is explained as care focused
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is explained as inhibiting
back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and possibly
via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses.
More research is recommended to figure out
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We use spinal manipulation every day at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown
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 higher in those who got care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors
in the US. (2) Your Pensacola chiropractor uses
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 adapting her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic
spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools
and understanding to realize such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Showing chronic nonspecific Pensacola
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 was more helpful.
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 Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center: reduced pain.
