EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
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.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
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.
