Does any neck pain sufferer look forward to
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. New
studies are showing that receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Paramus
neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center
is ready to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Paramus back pain are leading
causes of disability globally and here in Paramus.
Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, helpful
option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few sufferers. Chiropractic is explained as care centered
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is described as hindering
back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and possibly
via peripheral mechanisms that regulate 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 utilize spinal manipulation every day at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown
to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients wanting relief find that their treatment is escalated
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times greater in those who received care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors
in the US. (2) Your Paramus chiropractor delivers
specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain
SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK
As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation,
Cox® Technic flexion distraction, helps relieve
pain, a case report of a patient with neurofibromatosis
who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation together 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools
and understanding to attain such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Explaining to chronic nonspecific Paramus
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain enriches 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 helpful.
The combination decreased the patients’ pain-disability scores,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s
the goal of care for us at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center: less pain.
