Lynchburg 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 Lynchburg neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Palmer Chiropractic Center is here to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Lynchburg back pain are primary causes of disability globally and here in Lynchburg. Chiropractic is being related as a safe, effective option for management of back and neck pain for many such patients. 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 control inflammatory pain responses. More research is called upon to figure out just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We use spinal manipulation daily at Palmer Chiropractic Center.

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 heightened to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such risk was 2.38 times higher in those who got care other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors in the US.

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 patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis who experienced headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release, patient education about modifying her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools and understanding to get such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Showing chronic nonspecific Lynchburg 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 assist their understanding of their condition found that the combination was more impactful. 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 Palmer Chiropractic Center: reduced pain.
