Pensacola Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the head, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A little irritation of a nerve may cause a little bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the area of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other reatures also may be at play when there is neck pain, but for this article, we’re looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Pensacola neck pain with or without arm pain arises. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the style of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that studied just how mobilization and manipulation influenced patients with neck pain of all types (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both improved these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates nerve roots was shown to reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of Pensacola chiropractic care at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. Your Pensacola chiropractor keeps current on the research-proven ways to produce these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge two forms of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were successful in this study for decreasing pain, improving range of motion, and diminishing disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by joining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, and a combination of them all! Pensacola neck pain and arm pain patients enjoy the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center, Cox® Technic is used. It’s a gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% decrease in pain scores in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain reported relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Pensacola neck pain and Pensacola arm pain relief.
