Auburn Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small space. A little irritation of a nerve may cause a little bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the area of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may come into play when there is neck pain, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Auburn neck pain along with neck pain or not arises. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C., too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the form of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that tested just how manipulation and mobilization impacted patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both improved these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion bothers nerve roots was reported to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of Auburn chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.. Your Auburn chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the optimal ways to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge two forms of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for reducing pain, improving range of motion, and lessening disability related to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. does its best to deliver all the benefit possible to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by joining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Auburn neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C., Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a study of 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy cared for with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% drop in pain scores in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Auburn neck pain and Auburn arm pain relief.
