Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing moving structure. It not only supports the weight of the head, it also houses a variety of important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small space. 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 provided by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may influence when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we’re looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Burlington and Hamilton neck pain with or without arm pain arises. Spinal Care Clinic, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the style of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are treatment methods for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that documented just how manipulation and mobilization affected patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both improved these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Additionally, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates 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 objectives of Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic. Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor keeps current on the research-proven ways to produce these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers recognize two types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were successful in this study for reducing pain, increasing range of motion, and decreasing disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Spinal Care Clinic does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by joining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, and a combination of them all! Burlington and Hamilton neck pain and arm pain patients enjoy the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Spinal Care Clinic, Cox® Technic is implemented. it is 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 in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She had 24 visits 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 Burlington and Hamilton neck pain and Burlington and Hamilton arm pain relief.
