Joy! Joy! Joy! That’s this time of year…for most of us. For some it is a pain in the neck. We’re|We are here to help! Chiropractic care at Moriarty Chiropractic is gentle, effective, and proven to ease pain in a fairly brief period of time. Non-specific neck pain patients reported that they felt improvement in their neck disability after one cervical spine manipulation treatment. (1) Even for more difficult cases (like the following), The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management delivers pain-relieving results. A patient with neck pain due to narrowing of the cervical spine foramen and radiating arm pain as an effect of a C6-C7 cervical disc herniation reported decreased pain and better function in 10 visits in a month. The patient was without pain and fully functional 8 months later. (2) Another patient with a post-surgical C6-7 fusion who had neck pain and back pain stated that he had less pain (which dropped from 8/10 to 3/10) in 12 visits in 3 months with Cox® treatment. (3) A review of published studies on the effectiveness of manual therapy for chronic neck pain, described as a safe and less painful method to lessen chronic neck pain, concluded that manipulative therapy lowers the degree of chronic neck pain and neck disability. (4) And most patients do not have to continue care ‘forever’. A new study wrote that chiropractors do not recommend continued care except for certain types of neck pain patients: only 39% of patients were proposed to continue care beyond 4 weeks with long duration of neck pain being the most commong guide for continued care. (5) Our Cox® Technic treatment plan for cervical spine pain is gentle and effective for Nashua neck pain whether it is acute or chronic, radiating into the shoulder or down the arm or centralized to the neck. This time of year, neck pain patients walk in our door daily! We are prepared to help each one find a little more JOY of the season!


Nashua CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise those Neck Muscles!

Cervical spine pain patients who want Nashua pain relief - relief that lasts - often get it once they add exercise. A simple elastic band exercise program proved effective for non-specific neck pain decrease and better strength of cervical spine flexor and extensor muscles as well as scapular. (6) To improve neck pain and disability effects, a study tested and discovered that isometric exercises significantly lowered neck disability index scores after 4 weeks for cervical spondylosis patients. (7) These are straightforward exercises that do not take long to do or to have a beneficial effect on neck pain. So good!
