Pflugerville Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer enjoy getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Nope! New studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Pflugerville neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Pflugerville Wellness Center is ready to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Pflugerville back pain are leading causes of disability around the world and here in Pflugerville. Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, effective option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few sufferers. Chiropractic is explained as care focused on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is explained as inhibiting back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and possibly via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses. More research is suggested to determine just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We utilize spinal manipulation every day at Pflugerville Wellness Center.

SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION

Spinal manipulation for neck pain is demonstrated to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain patients wanting relief find that their treatment is heightened to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such risk was 2.38 times greater in those who received care other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors in the US. (2) Your Pflugerville chiropractor delivers specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic flexion distraction, facilitates in relieving pain, a patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation together with myofascial release, patient education about modifying her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic spine pain and headache frequency. (3) Pflugerville Wellness Center works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools and knowledge to realize such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Giving chronic nonspecific Pflugerville neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain boosts their outcomes. A study comparing therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education to assist their understanding of their condition found that the combination was more helpful. The combination reduced the patients’ pain-disability scores, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is the goal of care for us at Pflugerville Wellness Center: reduced pain.
