Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is an everyday condition bringing patients into our Baton Rouge chiropractic clinic! Spine & Sports Rehab Center finds that chronic neck pain is a widespread problem today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Spine & Sports Rehab Center is prepared to help coordinate some neck pain relief with a Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options are plentiful. One common approach is manual therapy. (Spine & Sports Rehab Center offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic is exercise. A third is combining both. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone enhanced perceived neck pain sooner than exercise. Therapeutic exercise decreased disability faster than manual therapy. (1) A further research project compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise by itself over a month. Manual therapy plus exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise by itself. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center has found that patient participation boosts clinical outcomes, too. Merging the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the better option.


Spine & Sports Rehab Center follows the research. Research revealed that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of both that combining the two was beneficial. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Spine & Sports Rehab Center finds that Baton Rouge neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
