Manchester Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer want to get an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. Recent studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Manchester neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is ready to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Manchester back pain are primary causes of disability globally and here in Manchester. Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, helpful option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few such patients. Chiropractic is described as care centered on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and possibly via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses. More research is recommended to figure out just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We utilize spinal manipulation daily at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries.

SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION

Spinal manipulation for neck pain is demonstrated to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain patients wanting relief find that their treatment is heightened to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such risk was 2.38 times higher in those who got care other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors in the US.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic flexion distraction, facilitates in relieving pain, a patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation together with myofascial release, patient education about modifying her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools and knowledge to get such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Showing chronic nonspecific Manchester neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain enriches their outcomes. A study comparing therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education to assist their understanding of their condition found that the combination was more impactful. The combination decreased the patients’ pain-disability indices, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s the goal of care for us at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries: less pain.
