Groton Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer want to get an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Nope! New studies are showing that receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Groton neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is here to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Groton back pain are foremost causes of disability around the world and here in Groton. Chiropractic is being related as a safe, helpful option for management of back and neck pain for many such patients. Chiropractic is described as care centered on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is explained as hindering back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and potentially via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses. More research is suggested to figure out just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We utilize spinal manipulation every day at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office.

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 reduced the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors in the US. (2) Your Groton 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, helps relieve pain, a case report of 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 adapting her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to give him/her the tools and knowledge to attain such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Showing chronic nonspecific Groton 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 dropped the patients’ pain-disability indices, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s the goal of care for us at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office: reduced pain.
