The spine. Its five sections constitutes
one spine, so it’s logical that treating one section
might affect another. So interesting. So newly
published! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. enjoys new
research, and this new research indicates that treating the thoracic spine positively influences
the status of the cervical spine. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is completely in
favor of the two-for-one effect for spinal pain reduction! When problems of
cervical spine myelopathy and disc herniation are involved,
Auburn neck pain patients will be, too.
CERVICAL SPINE PAIN
Cervical spine pain may include neck pain as
well as radiculopathy or cervical radicular pain down the arm. Such diseases of the cervical spine may trigger
other issues, too. For example, patients with cervical spine
spinal cord disease have 3 times more likelihood of having
cardiovascular disease. Rapidly progressive cervical spine myelopathy patients are likely to have a history of a cardiovascular event and exhibit
C4/5 disc hyperintensity on T2-MRI images. (1) Another intriguing
study of patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy - a
progressive spine disease concerning cervical spinal cord compression
– found that patient evaluation of the quality of care they received comes down to satisfaction.
The research findings, therefore, reiterate the significance
of explaining to patients what they can expect to increase
satisfaction: At 12 months following surgery for neck degenerative
myelopathy, the relief of pain and function issues may be better
(37%), may stay the same (55%), or may decline
(7%). (2) Honesty is the best policy in life and in doctor-patient relationships.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. presents its proposed treatment’s expected
outcomes as well as the course of healing to be expected on day
one. (ex: “Some days will be nicer than others as you
heal. Healing comes when the good days start
to exceed the poor ones.”) Auburn chiropractic care including gentle chiropractic adjusting – like with Cox® Technic – improves
the odds of good days and more good days!
THORACIC SPINE ADJUSTING HELPS CERVICAL SPINE PAIN
Chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine can be quite
gentle and pain-relieving not just for the thoracic spine but also the cervical
spine. Thoracic spine thrust adjusting has been shown to ease
cervical spine pain and improve disability. A recent
article describes improvements in pain, disability, cervical
spine range of motion, and deep neck flexor endurance in patients who
experience cervical spine radiculopathy after just one treatment. These changes
were most reported by patients 48 to 72 hours after treatment. (3)
Neighboring cervical and thoracic spine sections feed off of
each other’s care! Wonderful! There is that positive
two-for-one effect again.
