Augusta Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

August 10, 2021

Everything has its role. Everything satisfies a need. In managing neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their roles in treating the pain, disability and range of motion loss. They are needed. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many Augusta neck pain sufferers to return their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is newly documented as particularly beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 


Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic follows The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to manage neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered total resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to a big C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox® flexion distraction reduced pain in 13.2 treatments (ranging from 6 to 37). (2) A newer paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the incorporation of stretching to the plan was more helpful at returning cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion despite not touching pain and disability. (3) That’s where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help ease the pain and disability part. Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is beneficial and has its place in treating neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another study further reported that neck stretching is one of the most effective physical therapy interventions.  Static and diagonal active stretching were helpful at decreasing neck disability and improving cervical spine range of motion. Further, cervical range of motion values significantly rose at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study suggesting positive long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain relief studies, Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic makes sure to share benefits of a variety of ways to decrease neck pain.
