Nashua Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

October 06, 2020

Neck pain is an ordinary condition drawing patients into our Nashua chiropractic clinic! Moriarty Chiropractic sees that chronic neck pain is a frequent problem today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Moriarty Chiropractic is prepared to help deliver some neck pain relief with a Nashua chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options flourish. One popular method is manual therapy. (Moriarty Chiropractic uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic is exercise. A third is combining both. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone improved perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise reduced disability earlier than manual therapy. (1) An additional research project assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over 4 weeks. Manual therapy plus exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise alone. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic has found that patient participation improves clinical outcomes, too. Combining the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


Moriarty Chiropractic follows the research. Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of the two that combining the two was valuable. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Moriarty Chiropractic realizes that Nashua neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing suggested neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
