EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
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.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
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
