Eugene Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is a common condition drawing patients to our Eugene chiropractic clinic! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic sees that chronic neck pain is a prevalent issue nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to help deliver some neck pain relief with a Eugene chiropractic treatment plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options flourish. One popular method is manual therapy. (Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic is exercise. A third is combining the two. A recent study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone enhanced perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise decreased disability earlier than manual therapy. (1) Another study compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise by itself over a month. Manual therapy plus exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise by itself. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic has observed that patient participation boosts clinical outcomes, too. Merging the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the better option.


Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic follows the research. Research revealed that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, dropped intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of the two that using both was advantageous. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a report on cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic realizes that Eugene neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing suggested neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
