McHenry Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer look forward to getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. New studies are showing that receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors - may help such McHenry neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Spengel Chiropractic is ready to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside McHenry back pain are primary causes of disability around the world and here in McHenry. Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, effective option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few such patients. Chiropractic is explained as care centered on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and potentially via peripheral mechanisms that regulate 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 every day at Spengel Chiropractic.

SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION

Spinal manipulation for neck pain is demonstrated to decrease 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 higher 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 McHenry 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 case report of a patient with neurofibromatosis who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated 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) Spengel Chiropractic works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools and understanding to realize such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Giving chronic nonspecific McHenry 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 Spengel Chiropractic: reduced pain.
