Does any neck pain sufferer enjoy
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. New
studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Auburn
neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
is here to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Auburn back pain are primary
causes of disability around the world and here in Auburn.
Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, effective
option for management of back and neck pain for many sufferers. Chiropractic is explained as care centered
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is described as hindering
back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and potentially
via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses.
More research is called upon to determine
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We use spinal manipulation every day at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C..
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 wanting relief find that their treatment is heightened
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times higher in those who got care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation reduced the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors
in the US. (2) Your Auburn 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 case report of a patient with neurofibromatosis
who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation together 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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
Giving chronic nonspecific Auburn
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 help them understand their condition
found that the combination was more helpful.
The combination reduced the patients’ pain-disability scores,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s
the goal of care for us at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.: less pain.
