Colorado Springs Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the head, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the size of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other reatures also may come into play when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we’re looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Colorado Springs neck pain along with neck pain or not arises. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization a la Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that studied just how mobilization and manipulation affected patients with neck pain of all types (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both enhanced these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion bothers nerve roots was shown to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of Colorado Springs chiropractic care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. Your Colorado Springs chiropractor keeps current on the optimal means to produce these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge a couple types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for reducing pain, improving range of motion, and lessening disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR strives to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by joining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Colorado Springs neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR, Cox® Technic is used. It’s the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy cared for with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% reduction in pain scores after a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman dealing with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Colorado Springs neck pain and Colorado Springs arm pain relief.
