Lynchburg Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is a common condition drawing patients into our Lynchburg chiropractic clinic! Palmer Chiropractic Center sees that chronic neck pain is a widespread problem nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Palmer Chiropractic Center is prepared to help coordinate some neck pain relief with a Lynchburg chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options flourish. One popular method is manual therapy. (Palmer Chiropractic Center offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic is exercise. A third is combining both. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone enhanced perceived neck pain sooner than exercise. Therapeutic exercise lessened disability sooner than manual therapy. (1) A further research project assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over a month. Manual therapy plus exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise by itself. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center has found that patient participation improves clinical outcomes, too. Merging the most effective therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


Palmer Chiropractic Center follows the research. Research made evident a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, dropped cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of the two that using both was advantageous. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a report on cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Palmer Chiropractic Center realizes that Lynchburg neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing suggested neck exercises as well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
