NECK PAIN THIS TIME OF YEAR?! Spinal Care Clinic IS HERE TO HELP!

Joy! Joy! Joy! That’s this time of year…for most of us. For some it is a pain in the neck. We’re|We are here to help! Chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic is calm, effective, and proven to be relieving in a relatively brief period of time. Non-specific neck pain patients reported that they felt that their neck disability was improved after one cervical spine manipulation session. (1) Even for more difficult cases (like the following), The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management delivers pain-relieving results. One patient with cervical spine foraminal narrowing and radiating arm pain due to a C6-C7 cervical disc herniation reported reduced pain and better function in 10 visits in 4 weeks. The patient was without pain and fully functional 8 months later. (2) Another patient with a post-surgical C6-7 fusion experiencing neck pain and back pain stated that he had decreased pain (which fell from 8/10 to 3/10) in 12 visits in 3 months with Cox® treatment. (3) A review of published studies on the effectiveness of manual therapy for chronic neck pain, depicted to be a safe and less painful method to ease chronic neck pain, proposed that manipulative therapy reduces the degree of chronic neck pain and neck disability. (4) And most patients do not have to continue care ‘forever’. A new study documented that chiropractors do not recommend continued care apart from certain neck pain patients: only 39% of patients were proposed to continue care beyond 4 weeks with long duration of neck pain being the strongest indicator for continued care. (5) Our Cox® Technic treatment plan for cervical spine pain is gentle and effective for Burlington and Hamilton neck pain whether it is acute or chronic, going into the shoulder or down the arm or centralized to the neck. This time of year, neck pain patients walk into this Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic office every day! We are ready to help each one find a little more JOY of the season!

 

Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise those Neck Muscles!

Cervical spine pain patients who want sustained Burlington and Hamilton pain relief often get it once they add exercise. A simple elastic band exercise program was shown to be effective for non-specific neck pain reduction and improved strength of cervical spine flexor and extensor muscles as well as scapular. (6) To improve neck pain and disability effects, a study tested and discovered that isometric exercises significantly lessened neck disability index scores after 4 weeks for cervical spondylosis patients. (7) These are straightforward exercises that don’t take long to do or to have a beneficial effect on neck pain. So good!
