Can Chiropractic Relieve Neck Pain? Pflugerville Chiropractic Thoracic Spine Treatment Helps Ease Neck and Arm Pain.

The spine. Its five sections make up one spine, so it’s logical that treating one section might affect another. So fascinating. So newly published! Pflugerville Wellness Center has a thing about new research, and this new research indicates that treating the thoracic spine positively influences the status of the cervical spine. Pflugerville Wellness Center is all for the two-for-one effect for spinal pain reduction! When conditions of cervical spine myelopathy and disc herniation are involved, Pflugerville neck pain patients will be, too.

CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Cervical spine pain may involve neck pain as well as radiculopathy or cervical radicular pain down the arm. Cervical spine related diseases like this may trigger other issues, too. For example, patients who have cervical spine spinal cord disease have 3 times more incidence of having cardiovascular disease. Rapidly progressive cervical spine myelopathy patients are apt to have a history of a cardiovascular event and exhibit C4/5 disc hyperintensity on T2-MRI images. (1) Another interesting study of patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy - a progressive spine disease involving cervical spinal cord compression – found that patient evaluation of the quality of care they received comes down to satisfaction. The research findings, therefore, emphasize the significance of telling patients what to expect to increase satisfaction: At 12 months following surgery for neck degenerative myelopathy, the relief of pain and function issues may be improved (37%), may be the same (55%), or may deteriorate (7%). (2) Honesty is the best policy in life and in doctor-patient relationships. Pflugerville Wellness Center shares its proposed treatment’s expected outcomes and the course of healing to be expected on day one. (ex: “Some days will be better than others as you heal. Healing comes when the good days start to exceed the poor ones.”) Pflugerville chiropractic care including gentle chiropractic adjusting – like with Cox® Technic – improves the odds of good days and more good days!

THORACIC SPINE ADJUSTING HELPS CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine can be quite gentle and pain-relieving not just for the thoracic spine but also the cervical spine. Thoracic spine thrust adjusting has been shown to improve cervical spine pain and enhance disability. A recent article describes improvements in pain, disability, cervical spine range of motion, and deep neck flexor endurance in patients who experience cervical spine radiculopathy after just one treatment. These changes were most stated by patients 48 to 72 hours after treatment. (3) Neighboring cervical and thoracic spine sections feed off of each other’s care! Wonderful! There is that beneficial two-for-one effect again.
