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
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.
