Does any neck pain sufferer enjoy
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Nope! Recent
studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Malverne
neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Malverne Health & Wellness
is here to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Malverne back pain are foremost
causes of disability around the world and here in Malverne.
Chiropractic is being related as a safe, effective
option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few sufferers. Chiropractic is described as care focused
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is explained as inhibiting
back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and possibly
via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses.
More research is recommended to determine
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We utilize spinal manipulation every day at Malverne Health & Wellness.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown
to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients seeking relief find that their treatment is escalated
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times greater in those who received care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors
in the US. (2) Your Malverne chiropractor uses
specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain
SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK
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 experienced headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release,
patient education about adjusting her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic
spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to give him/her the tools
and knowledge to attain such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Explaining to chronic nonspecific Malverne
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain boosts 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 helped more.
The combination decreased the patients’ pain-disability scores,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s
the goal of care for us at Malverne Health & Wellness: less pain.
