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 area. 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’re
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.
