West Palm Beach Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer want to get an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Nope! Recent studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such West Palm Beach neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Moses Chiropractic is ready to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside West Palm Beach back pain are foremost causes of disability around the world and here in West Palm Beach. Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, helpful option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few such patients. Chiropractic is described as care centered on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is explained as hindering back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and possibly via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses. More research is suggested to figure out just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We use spinal manipulation daily at Moses Chiropractic.

SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION

Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown to decrease the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain patients wanting relief find that their treatment is escalated to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such risk was 2.38 times greater in those who received care other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation reduced the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors in the United States. (2) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor delivers 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, helps relieve 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 together with myofascial release, patient education about modifying her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Moses Chiropractic 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

Explaining to chronic nonspecific West Palm Beach neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain boosts their outcomes. A study comparing therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education to assist their understanding of their condition found that the combination was more impactful. The combination reduced the patients’ pain-disability scores, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is the goal of care for us at Moses Chiropractic: reduced pain.
