Auburn Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

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 The Cox® 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.
