McHenry Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very narrow space. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the area of the cervical spine canal provided by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other reatures also may influence when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, McHenry neck pain with or without arm pain arises. Spengel Chiropractic, too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the style of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are treatment methods for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that documented just how manipulation and mobilization impacted patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both enhanced these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion bothers nerve roots was shown to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of McHenry chiropractic care at Spengel Chiropractic. Your McHenry chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the optimal means to produce these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge two types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for decreasing pain, increasing range of motion, and decreasing disability related to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Spengel Chiropractic does its best to deliver all the benefit possible to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by joining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, and a combination of them all! McHenry neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Spengel Chiropractic, Cox® Technic is used. It’s a gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% decrease in pain scores after a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman dealing with 2 years of left arm pain reported relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic blends the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for McHenry neck pain and McHenry arm pain relief.
