Malverne Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing moving structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses a variety of important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A little irritation of a nerve may cause a little bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the area of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may influence when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we’re looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Malverne neck pain along with neck pain or not arises. Malverne Health & Wellness, too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization a la Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that documented just how manipulation and mobilization impacted patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both enhanced these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates nerve roots was shown to reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of Malverne chiropractic care at Malverne Health & Wellness. Your Malverne chiropractor keeps current on the research-proven means to produce these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers recognize a couple forms of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were successful in this study for decreasing pain, improving range of motion, and lessening disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion normal to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Malverne neck pain and arm pain patients appreciate the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Malverne Health & Wellness, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s a gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a study of 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy cared for with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% decrease in pain scores after a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She had 24 visits over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic blends the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Malverne neck pain and Malverne arm pain relief.
