February 2020 Healthy News from Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers: Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment of neck pain even with headache and dizziness relieves pain at a reduced cost and increased effectiveness.  


Neck pain affects 1 in 5 people over 70 years of age. An assessment of 800 Australian chiropractors discovered that 1/3 of the patients are older than 65 years old. 45.5% suffered with neck pain. 31.3% also suffered headache. (1) A new committee analysis of the most current significant clinical practice guidelines based on the best scientific evidence available to handle neck pain in adults involving neck pain with headache or radicular symptoms via chiropractic related that chiropractic manipulation and multimodal care are the “best practice recommendations.” (2) 82% of the older adults used one other healthcare provider in addition to chiropractic to manage neck pain. The chiropractors utilized manipulation of the thoracic spine, neck massage, and adjustment that gave rise to help for dizziness, neck pain, headache and migraine (though this takes more visits). (1) Baton Rouge chiropractic relief for neck pain grows in documented support. It’s also being reported as economical as well as drug- and opioid-preventative. A review in Missouri reported that using chiropractic in the Medicaid system saved $14.1 and $49.2 million, decreased in spinal surgery costs and use/abuse of opioid prescription drugs.

Non-specific neck pain patients do well with exercise as part of their treatment plan. Such patients were supervised in 12 exercise sessions 3 times a week with either traditional exercises vs traditional exercises plus sensorimotor training. Pain, intensity, muscle endurance and disability improved in both. The combined group significantly advanced in joint position sense and other parameters like endurance, dynamic balance and walking speed. (4) Increasing the number of steps walked a day over a 6-month period decreased neck pain occurrence in high risk office workers who sit and work at computers all day. It did not reduce pain intensity or disability, but it did reduce the onset of neck pain. (5) Fewer episodes of Baton Rouge neck pain is a great goal!
