Can Chiropractic Relieve Neck Pain? Colorado Springs Chiropractic Thoracic Spine Treatment Helps Ease Neck and Arm Pain.

The spine. Its five sections form one spine, so it makes sense that treating one area might affect another. So interesting. So recently published! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR loves new research, and this new research describes how treating the thoracic spine positively affects the status of the cervical spine. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is completely in favor of the two-for-one effect for spinal pain decrease! When issues of cervical spine myelopathy and disc herniation are involved, Colorado Springs neck pain patients will be, too.

CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Cervical spine pain may involve neck pain as well as radiculopathy or cervical radicular pain down the arm. Cervical spine related diseases like this may elicit other issues, too. For example, patients with cervical spine spinal cord disease have 3 times more incidence of having cardiovascular disease. Rapidly progressive cervical spine myelopathy patients are apt to have a history of a cardiovascular event and show C4/5 disc hyperintensity on T2-MRI images. (1) Another intriguing report of patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy - a progressive spine disease concerning cervical spinal cord compression – discovered that patients evaluated the quality of their care based on satisfaction. The research findings, therefore, emphasize the significance of explaining to patients what to expect to boost satisfaction: At 12 months after surgery for neck degenerative myelopathy, the relief of pain and function issues may be better (37%), may stay the same (55%), or may deteriorate (7%). (2) Honesty is the best way in life and in doctor-patient relationships. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR shares its proposed treatment’s expected outcomes as well as the course of healing to be expected upfront. (ex: “Some days will be nicer than others as you heal. Healing happens when the good days start to exceed the poor ones.”) Colorado Springs chiropractic care incorporating gentle chiropractic adjusting – like with Cox® Technic – improves the odds of good days and more good days!

THORACIC SPINE ADJUSTING HELPS CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine can be quite gentle and pain-relieving not just for the thoracic spine but also the cervical spine. Thoracic spine thrust adjusting has been shown to ease cervical spine pain and enhance disability. A current article tells of improvements in pain, disability, cervical spine range of motion, and deep neck flexor endurance in patients with cervical spine radiculopathy after just one treatment. These changes were most reported by patients 48 to 72 hours after treatment. (3) Adjacent cervical and thoracic spine sections feed off of each other’s care! Wonderful! There is that beneficial two-for-one effect again.
