BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES
Moriarty Chiropractic incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-suggested stretching in the general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Moriarty Chiropractic follows The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to ease neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain from a big C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox® flexion distraction produced pain reduction in 13.2 treatments (ranging from 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper states that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition of stretching to the plan was more helpful at returning cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion without touching pain and disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help address the pain and disability part. Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is beneficial and has its role in addressing neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another research project further reported that neck stretching is one of the most successful physical therapy interventions. Static and diagonal active stretching were helpful at reducing neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Additionally, cervical range of motion values significantly rose at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study suggesting positive long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping abreast of the neck pain relief studies, Moriarty Chiropractic makes certain to present benefits of a variety of ways to reduce neck pain.
