Fort Wayne Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing moving structure. It not only supports the weight of the head, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A little irritation of a nerve may cause a little bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the size of the cervical spine canal provided by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may come into play when there is neck pain, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Fort Wayne neck pain along with neck pain or not arises. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization a la Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are treatment methods for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that studied just how manipulation and mobilization impacted patients with neck pain of all types (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both enhanced these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Additionally, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates nerve roots was shown to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of Fort Wayne chiropractic care at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the optimal means to produce these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge a couple forms of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were successful in this study for reducing pain, improving range of motion, and lessening disability related to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic strives to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion normal to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, and a combination of them all! Fort Wayne neck pain and arm pain patients appreciate the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Aaron Chiropractic Clinic, Cox® Technic is implemented. it is the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a study of 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy cared for with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% drop in pain scores after a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman dealing with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic blends the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Fort Wayne neck pain and Fort Wayne arm pain relief.
