Paramus Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

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 relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

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.
