NECK PAIN THIS TIME OF YEAR?! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic IS HERE TO HELP!

Joy! Joy! Joy! That’s this time of year…for most of us. For some it’s a pain in the neck. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is here to help! Chiropractic care at our Augusta chiropractic clinic is calm, effective, and proven to be relieving in a fairly brief period of time. Non-specific neck pain patients noted that they felt that their neck disability was improved after one cervical spine manipulation treatment. (1) Even for cases that more difficult (like the following), The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management delivers pain-relieving outcomes. A patient with neck pain due to narrowing of the cervical spine foramen and radiating arm pain as an effect of a C6-C7 cervical disc herniation reported less pain and better function in 10 visits in a month. The patient was pain free and fully functional 8 months later. (2) Another patient with a post-surgical C6-7 fusion who had neck pain and back pain reported reduced pain (which fell from 8/10 to 3/10) in 12 visits in 3 months with Cox® treatment. (3) A review of published papers on the effectiveness of manual therapy for chronic neck pain, depicted to be a safe and less painful method to alleviate chronic neck pain, proposed that manipulative therapy decreases the degree of chronic neck pain and neck disability. (4) And most patients do not have to continue care ‘forever’. A recent study wrote that chiropractors don’t recommend continued care except for certain types of neck pain patients: only 39% of patients were proposed to continue care beyond 4 weeks with long duration of neck pain being the strongest guide for continued care. (5) Our Cox® Technic treatment plan for cervical spine pain is gentle and effective for Augusta neck pain whether it’s acute or chronic, going into the shoulder or down the arm or centralized to the neck. This time of year, neck pain patients walk into Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic daily! We are ready to help each of them find a little more JOY of the season!

 

Augusta CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise those Neck Muscles!

Cervical spine pain patients who want Augusta pain relief - relief that lasts - often get it once they add exercise. A simple elastic band exercise program proved effective for non-specific neck pain decrease and better strength of cervical spine flexor, extensor and scapular muscles. (6) To improve neck pain and disability effects, a study found that isometric exercises significantly lowered neck disability index scores after 4 weeks for cervical spondylosis patients. (7) These are straightforward exercises that don’t take long to do or to have a beneficial effect on neck pain. So good!
