Malverne Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its place. Everything fills a need. In managing neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their roles in managing the relief of the pain, disability and range of motion loss. They are needed. Malverne Health & Wellness treats many Malverne neck pain sufferers to restore their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is newly found to be particularly beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 

BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES

Malverne Health & Wellness incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the overall treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Malverne Health & Wellness follows The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to treat neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered total resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to a big C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox® flexion distraction delivered pain reduction in 13.2 treatments (ranging from 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the incorporation of stretching to the plan was more helpful at enhancing cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion without affecting pain and disability. (3) That’s where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help ease the pain and disability part. Adding stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is positive and has its role in the treatment of neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another research project further stated that neck stretching is a most successful physical therapy intervention.  Static and diagonal active stretching were successful at decreasing neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Additionally, cervical range of motion values significantly increased at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study demonstrating beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain relief studies, Malverne Health & Wellness makes sure to share benefits of a variety of ways to decrease neck pain.
