Everything has its place. Everything satisfies
a need. In treating neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization
have their roles in managing the relief of the pain,
disability and range of motion loss. They are
needed. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center treats many Pensacola neck
pain sufferers to return their lost range of motion due to pain.
Stretching is newly found to be especially
beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan.
BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization,
nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the
general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific
mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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 due to
a large C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox®
flexion distraction reduced pain
in 13.2 treatments (ranging from 6 to 37). (2) A recent
paper states that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition
of stretching to the plan was more effective at enhancing
cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges
of motion without affecting pain and
disability. (3) That’s where spinal manipulation and mobilization
come into play. They help address the pain and disability component.
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 key! Another study further stated
that neck stretching is a most effective physical
therapy intervention. Static and
diagonal active stretching were helpful at decreasing
neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Additionally,
cervical range of motion values significantly rose
at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study suggesting
positive long-term effects of stretching for neck pain,
disability, and function. (4) Keeping abreast of the neck pain
relief studies, Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center makes certain to share
benefits of various ways to decrease neck pain.
