Largo Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing moving structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses a variety of important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the area of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may come into play when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Largo neck pain with or without arm pain evolves. Hollstrom & Associates Inc, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization a la Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that documented just how mobilization and manipulation 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 reported to reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of Largo chiropractic care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc. Your Largo chiropractor keeps current on the optimal ways to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge a couple types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective 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 enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc does its best to deliver all the benefit possible to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion normal to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, and a combination of them all! Largo neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Hollstrom & Associates Inc, Cox® Technic is used. It’s the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% drop in pain scores in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman dealing with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Largo neck pain and Largo arm pain relief.
