Can Chiropractic Relieve Neck Pain? Auburn Chiropractic Thoracic Spine Treatment Helps Ease Neck and Arm Pain.

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.
