Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is here to help deliver some relief from the neck pain with a St. Francisville chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options are plentiful. One common method is manual therapy. (Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is combining both. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone improved perceived neck pain sooner than exercise. Therapeutic exercise lessened disability faster than manual therapy. (1) Another study assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over a month. Manual therapy with exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise by itself. (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville has observed that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes, too. Combining the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville follows the research. Research revealed that a safe, gentle type 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 favorable. (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) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville realizes that St. Francisville neck pain patients are anxious to help themselves by doing suggested neck exercises as well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
