Can Chiropractic Relieve Neck Pain? Pensacola Chiropractic Thoracic Spine Treatment Helps Ease Neck and Arm Pain.

The spine. Its five sections constitutes one spine, so it makes sense that treating one section might affect another. So fascinating. So recently published! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center loves new research, and this new research describes how treating the thoracic spine positively influences the status of the cervical spine. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is completely in favor of the two-for-one effect for spinal pain reduction! When conditions of cervical spine myelopathy and disc herniation are concerned, Pensacola neck pain patients will be, too.

CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Cervical spine pain may include neck pain as well as radiculopathy or cervical radicular pain down the arm. Such diseases of the cervical spine may trigger other issues, too. For example, patients with cervical spine spinal cord disease have 3 times more incidence of having cardiovascular disease. Rapidly progressive cervical spine myelopathy patients tend to have a history of a cardiovascular event and exhibit C4/5 disc hyperintensity on T2-MRI images. (1) Another intriguing study of patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy - a progressive spine disease concerning cervical spinal cord compression – discovered that patients evaluated the quality of their care based on satisfaction. The research findings, therefore, reiterate the significance of telling patients what to expect to boost satisfaction: At 12 months following surgery for neck degenerative myelopathy, the relief of pain and function issues may be improved (37%), may stay the same (55%), or may deteriorate (7%). (2) Honesty is the best way in life and in doctor-patient relationships. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center presents its proposed treatment’s expected outcomes and the course of healing to be expected on day one. (ex: “Some days will be nicer than others as you heal. Healing comes when the good days begin to exceed the poor ones.”) Pensacola chiropractic care with its gentle chiropractic adjusting – like with Cox® Technic – enhances the odds of good days and more good days!

THORACIC SPINE ADJUSTING HELPS CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine can be quite gentle and pain-relieving not just for the thoracic spine but also the cervical spine. Thoracic spine thrust adjusting has been shown to improve cervical spine pain and improve disability. A current article tells of improvements in pain, disability, cervical spine range of motion, and deep neck flexor endurance in patients who have cervical spine radiculopathy after just one treatment. These changes were most stated by patients 48 to 72 hours after treatment. (3) Adjacent cervical and thoracic spine sections feed off of each other’s care! Wonderful! There is that positive two-for-one effect again.
