Does any neck pain sufferer enjoy
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. Recent
studies are showing that receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is delivered by chiropractors - may help such Baton Rouge
neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Spine & Sports Rehab Center
is ready to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Baton Rouge back pain are primary
causes of disability globally and here in Baton Rouge .
Chiropractic is being related as a safe, effective
option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few sufferers. Chiropractic is explained as care focused
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with 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 figure out
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We use spinal manipulation daily at Spine & Sports Rehab Center.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown
to decrease 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 received care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation reduced the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors
in the US. (2) Your Baton Rouge chiropractor delivers
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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to give him/her the tools
and knowledge to realize such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Explaining to chronic nonspecific Baton Rouge
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain enhances 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 is
the goal of care for us at Spine & Sports Rehab Center: less pain.
