Colorado Springs Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is an everyday condition drawing patients into our Colorado Springs chiropractic clinic! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR finds that chronic neck pain is a frequent problem today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is ready to help deliver some relief from the neck pain with a Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options flourish. One common method is manual therapy. (The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is mixing both. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself improved perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise lessened disability faster than manual therapy. (1) A further study assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over a month. Manual therapy plus exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise alone. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR has found that patient participation improves clinical outcomes, too. Combining the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR follows the research. Research revealed that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of the two that combining the two was advantageous. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR finds that Colorado Springs neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
