Everything has its place. Everything fills
a need. In treating neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization
have their roles in treating the pain,
disability and range of motion loss. They are
needed. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. takes care of many Auburn neck
pain sufferers to return their lost range of motion due to pain.
Stretching is newly documented as especially
beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan.
BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization,
nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the
overall treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific
mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. uses
Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to treat neck
pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols produced
complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to
a large C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 cervical
spine radiculopathy patients, Cox®
flexion distraction reduced pain
in 13.2 treatments (range 6 to 37). (2) A recent
paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition
of stretching to the plan was more helpful at improving
cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges
of motion despite not touching pain and
disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization
come into play. They help address the pain and disability component.
Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is
positive and has its place in treating neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another research project further described
that neck stretching is one of the most effective physical
therapy interventions. Static and
diagonal active stretching were helpful at decreasing
neck disability and improving cervical spine range of motion. Further,
cervical range of motion values significantly rose
at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study demonstrating
beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain,
disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain
relief studies, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. makes certain to share
benefits of various ways to reduce neck pain.
