Team effort. That’s what it’s all about when it comes to success for many things in life. Neck pain is no exception. Plus, neck pain doesn’t just happen due to one cause. Spinal discs, muscles, tendons and more play into the equation. Disc degeneration, injury, nutrition and more play in as well. Nothing happens alone. So Moriarty Chiropractic is part of the Nashua chiropractic treatment plan team for neck pain relief. Nashua neck pain patients know they can rely on Moriarty Chiropractic to do its part and get all the parts working together.
And one of the best parts of being a chiropractor for your Nashua chiropractor is the manual hands-on treatment. According to a new research report, manual therapy is more relieving to patients with chronic neck pain than exercise though exercise added to manual therapy does improve patients’ noticing an improved change in their pain status. (1) That’s the way Moriarty Chiropractic sees it. The team approach of exercise and treatment is the way to go.
Now, just as they find in the low back, researchers find that neck muscles are weak in neck pain patients, especially in those with a loss of cervical lordosis (curvature of the cervical spine). Cervical spine exercise programs that include exercises for neck extensor muscles benefit these neck pain patients. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic has seen greater relief when Nashua patients exercise these muscles, too.
One type of exercise, deep craniocervical flexor training of the neck muscles, is an exercise neck pain patients can do to activate weak neck muscles. It improves neck function. When combined with thoracic manipulation, it’s even more effective for pain relief, improved range of motion, muscle function and neck disability for nonspecific neck pain patients. (3) So combining Nashua chiropractic spinal manipulation at Moriarty Chiropractic with at-home exercise for weak neck muscles is a boost to your clinical outcome!
