Sitka Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is an ordinary condition bringing patients to our Sitka chiropractic clinic! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees that chronic neck pain is a frequent problem nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is ready to help deliver some neck pain relief with a Sitka chiropractic treatment plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options abound. One common method is manual therapy. (Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is mixing the two. A recent study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself improved perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise lessened disability sooner than manual therapy. (1) A further study compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise by itself over a month. Manual therapy with exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise alone. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka has observed that patient participation improves clinical outcomes, too. Combining the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the better option.


Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka goes with the research. Research revealed that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of both that combining the two was advantageous. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka realizes that Sitka neck pain patients are anxious to help themselves by doing suggested neck exercises as well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
