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
SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK
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.
