West Palm Beach 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 a variety of 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 provided by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other reatures also may come into play when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, West Palm Beach neck pain with or without arm pain arises. Moses Chiropractic, too, rises to the occasion to reduce 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 manipulation and mobilization affected 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) Additionally, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates nerve roots was reported to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Moses Chiropractic. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the research-proven means to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers recognize a couple types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for reducing pain, increasing range of motion, and diminishing disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Moses Chiropractic does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves 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! West Palm Beach neck pain and arm pain patients appreciate the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Moses Chiropractic, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s the 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% drop in pain scores after a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman dealing with 2 years of left arm pain reported relief after the first visit. She had 24 visits over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic blends the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for West Palm Beach neck pain and West Palm Beach arm pain relief.
