Pensacola Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer want to get 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 relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

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.
