Does any neck pain sufferer want to get an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. Recent
studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Fort Wayne
neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
is ready to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Fort Wayne back pain are primary
causes of disability around the world and here in Fort Wayne.
Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, effective
option for management of back and neck pain for many sufferers. Chiropractic is explained as care centered
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting
back and neck pain in part 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 utilize spinal manipulation daily at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is demonstrated
to decrease the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients seeking relief find that their treatment is escalated
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 decreased the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors
in the US. (2) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor uses
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, helps relieve
pain, a case report of a patient with neurofibromatosis
who had 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 adapting her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic
spine pain and headache frequency. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to give him/her the tools
and knowledge to attain such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Explaining to chronic nonspecific Fort Wayne
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 help them understand their condition
found that the combination was more helpful.
The combination reduced the patients’ pain-disability scores,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is
the goal of care for us at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic: less pain.
