Colorado Springs Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer want to get an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. Recent studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors - may help such Colorado Springs neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is here to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Colorado Springs back pain are foremost causes of disability globally and here in Colorado Springs. Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, helpful option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few such patients. Chiropractic is described as care focused on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and potentially via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses. More research is called upon to figure out just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We utilize spinal manipulation every day at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR.

SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION

Spinal manipulation for neck pain is demonstrated to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain patients seeking relief find that their treatment is escalated to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such risk was 2.38 times higher in those who received care other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors in the US. (2) Your Colorado Springs chiropractor delivers specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic flexion distraction, helps relieve pain, a patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release, patient education about adjusting her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic spine pain and headache frequency. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools and understanding to attain such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Giving chronic nonspecific Colorado Springs neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain enriches their outcomes. A study comparing therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education to assist their understanding of their condition found that the combination helped more. The combination decreased the patients’ pain-disability scores, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is the goal of care for us at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR: less pain.
