Eugene 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 showing that receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Eugene neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is ready to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Eugene back pain are foremost causes of disability around the world and here in Eugene. Chiropractic is being related as a safe, helpful option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few sufferers. Chiropractic is explained as care centered on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is explained as inhibiting back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and potentially via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses. More research is suggested to determine just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We use spinal manipulation daily at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic.

SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION

Spinal manipulation for neck pain is demonstrated to decrease the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain patients seeking relief find that their treatment is escalated to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such risk was 2.38 times higher 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 US. (2) Your Eugene chiropractor uses 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 experienced headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release, patient education about adjusting her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools and knowledge to attain such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Explaining to chronic nonspecific Eugene neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain enhances their outcomes. A study comparing therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education to help them understand their condition found that the combination helped more. The combination decreased the patients’ pain-disability scores, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is the goal of care for us at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic: reduced pain.
