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.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options are plentiful.
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.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
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.
