Can Chiropractic Relieve Neck Pain? Paramus Chiropractic Thoracic Spine Treatment Helps Ease Neck and Arm Pain.

The spine. Its five sections make up one spine, so it’s logical that treating one section might affect another. So fascinating. So newly published! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center enjoys new research, and this new research presents that treating the thoracic spine beneficially influences the status of the cervical spine. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is all for the two-for-one effect for spinal pain reduction! When conditions of cervical spine myelopathy and disc herniation are involved, Paramus neck pain patients will be, too.

CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Cervical spine pain may involve neck pain as well as radiculopathy or cervical radicular pain down the arm. Cervical spine related diseases like this may trigger other issues, too. For example, patients with cervical spine spinal cord disease have three times more incidence of having cardiovascular disease. Rapidly progressive cervical spine myelopathy patients are likely to have a history of a cardiovascular event and exhibit C4/5 disc hyperintensity on T2-MRI images. (1) Another interesting report of patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy - a progressive spine disease concerning cervical spinal cord compression – discovered that patients evaluated the quality of their care based on satisfaction. The research findings, therefore, emphasize the significance of explaining to patients what they can expect to increase satisfaction: At 12 months following surgery for neck degenerative myelopathy, the relief of pain and function issues may be better (37%), may remain the same (55%), or may deteriorate (7%). (2) Honesty is the best policy in life and in doctor-patient interactions. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center shares its proposed treatment’s expected outcomes and the course of healing to be expected upfront. (ex: “Some days will be better than others as you heal. Healing happens when the good days begin to exceed the poor ones.”) Paramus chiropractic care with its gentle chiropractic adjusting – like with Cox® Technic – improves the odds of good days and more good days!

THORACIC SPINE ADJUSTING HELPS CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine can be quite gentle and pain-relieving not just for the thoracic spine but also the cervical spine. Thoracic spine thrust adjusting has been shown to ease cervical spine pain and improve disability. A current article describes improvements in pain, disability, cervical spine range of motion, and deep neck flexor endurance in patients who experience cervical spine radiculopathy after just one treatment. These changes were most reported by patients 48 to 72 hours after treatment. (3) Neighboring cervical and thoracic spine sections feed off of each other’s care! Wonderful! There is that positive two-for-one effect again.
