Can Chiropractic Relieve Neck Pain? Fort Wayne Chiropractic Thoracic Spine Treatment Helps Ease Neck and Arm Pain.

The spine. Its five sections constitutes one spine, so it makes sense that treating one section might affect another. So interesting. So newly published! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic loves new research, and this new research describes how treating the thoracic spine positively affects the status of the cervical spine. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is all for the two-for-one effect for spinal pain reduction! When problems of cervical spine myelopathy and disc herniation are involved, Fort Wayne neck pain patients will be, too.

CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Cervical spine pain may include neck pain as well as radiculopathy or cervical radicular pain down the arm. Such diseases of the cervical spine may stimulate other issues, too. For example, patients with cervical spine spinal cord disease have three times more incidence of having cardiovascular disease. Rapidly progressive cervical spine myelopathy patients are apt to have a history of a cardiovascular event and exhibit C4/5 disc hyperintensity on T2-MRI images. (1) Another interesting study of patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy - a progressive spine disease involving cervical spinal cord compression – found that patients evaluated the quality of their care based on satisfaction. The research findings, therefore, emphasize the importance of telling patients what to expect to increase satisfaction: At 12 months after surgery for neck degenerative myelopathy, the relief of pain and function issues may be better (37%), may stay the same (55%), or may decline (7%). (2) Honesty is the best way in life and in doctor-patient relationships. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic shares its proposed treatment’s expected outcomes and the course of healing to be expected upfront. (ex: “Some days will be nicer than others as you heal. Healing happens when the good days start to exceed the poor ones.”) Fort Wayne chiropractic care including gentle chiropractic adjusting – like with Cox® Technic – enhances the odds of good days and more good days!

THORACIC SPINE ADJUSTING HELPS CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine can be quite gentle and pain-relieving not just for the thoracic spine but also the cervical spine. Thoracic spine thrust adjusting has been shown to improve cervical spine pain and improve disability. A current article tells of improvements in pain, disability, cervical spine range of motion, and deep neck flexor endurance in patients who experience cervical spine radiculopathy after just one treatment. These changes were most stated by patients 48 to 72 hours after treatment. (3) Neighboring cervical and thoracic spine sections feed off of each other’s care! Amazing! There is that beneficial two-for-one effect again.
