Fort Wayne Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

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 relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

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.
