Lynchburg 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 created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other reatures also may influence when there is neck pain, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Lynchburg neck pain with or without arm pain evolves. Palmer Chiropractic Center, too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the form of 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 tested just how mobilization and manipulation affected patients with neck pain of all types (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both improved 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 Lynchburg chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Center. Your Lynchburg chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the optimal means to produce these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge two types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for reducing pain, improving range of motion, and lessening disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by joining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Lynchburg neck pain and arm pain patients enjoy the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Palmer Chiropractic Center, Cox® Technic is used. 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 treated 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 reported 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 combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Lynchburg neck pain and Lynchburg arm pain relief.
