Colorado Springs Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its place. Everything satisfies a need. In treating neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their roles in managing the relief of the pain, disability and range of motion dysfunction. They’re needed. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR treats many Colorado Springs neck pain sufferers to restore their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is newly documented as especially beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 

BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR follows The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to manage neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain from a big C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox® flexion distraction produced pain reduction in 13.2 treatments (range 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper states that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the incorporation of stretching to the plan was more helpful at improving cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion without touching pain and disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help ease the pain and disability component. Adding stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is positive and has its place in the treatment of neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another study further reported that neck stretching is one of the most helpful physical therapy interventions.  Static and diagonal active stretching were successful at reducing neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Additionally, cervical range of motion values significantly increased at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study demonstrating beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain relief studies, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR makes certain to share benefits of various ways to reduce neck pain.
