Largo Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its role. Everything fills a need. In managing neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their roles in managing the relief of the pain, disability and range of motion loss. They’re needed. Hollstrom & Associates Inc takes care of many Largo 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

Hollstrom & Associates Inc incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-suggested stretching in the general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 due to a big C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox® flexion distraction reduced pain in 13.2 treatments (ranging from 6 to 37). (2) A newer paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition of stretching to the plan was more effective at enhancing cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion despite not affecting pain and disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help relieve the pain and disability component. Adding stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is beneficial and has its role in treating neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another study further described that neck stretching is a most successful physical therapy intervention.  Static and diagonal active stretching were effective at decreasing neck disability and improving cervical spine range of motion. Additionally, cervical range of motion values significantly rose at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study suggesting positive long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain relief studies, Hollstrom & Associates Inc makes sure to share benefits of a variety of ways to reduce neck pain.
