Minster Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is an ordinary condition drawing patients to our Minster chiropractic clinic! Minster Chiropractic Center finds that chronic neck pain is a frequent issue nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Minster Chiropractic Center is here to help find some relief from the neck pain with a Minster chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options abound. One popular approach is manual therapy. (Minster Chiropractic Center offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is mixing the two. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself enhanced perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise reduced disability earlier than manual therapy. (1) An additional research project assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over 4 weeks. Manual therapy plus exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise alone. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center has found that patient participation improves clinical outcomes, too. Combining the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


Minster Chiropractic Center follows the research. Research made evident a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of the two that combining the two was valuable. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Minster Chiropractic Center finds that Minster neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises as well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
