Minster 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 Minster neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Minster Chiropractic Center is ready to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Minster back pain are leading causes of disability globally and here in Minster. Chiropractic is being related as a safe, helpful option for management of back and neck pain for many sufferers. Chiropractic is described as care focused on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is described as hindering back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and potentially via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses. More research is recommended to determine just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We utilize spinal manipulation daily at Minster Chiropractic 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 United States. (2) Your Minster 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 patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis who experienced headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release, patient education about adapting her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Minster Chiropractic 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

Explaining to chronic nonspecific Minster neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain enhances 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 helped more. The combination dropped the patients’ pain-disability scores, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is the goal of care for us at Minster Chiropractic Center: reduced pain.
