Paramus Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing moving structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very narrow space. A little irritation of a nerve may cause a little bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the area of the cervical spine canal provided by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may come into play when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Paramus neck pain with or without arm pain arises. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the form of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment 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 enhanced these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates nerve roots was reported to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of Paramus chiropractic care at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center. Your Paramus chiropractor keeps current on the research-proven means to produce these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers recognize a couple forms 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 diminishing disability related to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes 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, and a combination of them all! Paramus neck pain and arm pain patients appreciate the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a study of 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy cared for 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 suffering with 2 years of left arm pain reported relief after the first visit. She had 24 visits in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Paramus neck pain and Paramus arm pain relief.
