Neck pain is a familiar

that chronic neck pain is a widespread issue
today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Disc Centers Of America
is ready to help deliver some neck pain relief with a Buffalo, NY chiropractic treatment
plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options are plentiful.
One common method is manual therapy. (Disc Centers Of America
offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic
is exercise. A third is combining the two. A new
study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone
improved perceived neck pain sooner than exercise.
Therapeutic exercise decreased disability sooner
than manual therapy. (1) A further research
project compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise
by itself over a month. Manual therapy plus
exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise alone. (2) Disc Centers Of America has observed
that patient participation boosts clinical outcomes,
too. Merging the most valuable therapies
for neck pain relief is the better option.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Disc Centers Of America follows the research.
Research made evident a safe, gentle form
of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, dropped intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In
the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to
exercise only for neck pain to the combination of both
that using both was favorable.
(4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved
pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a report on cervical spine
radiculopathy patients. (5) Disc Centers Of America finds that
Buffalo, NY neck pain patients are ready to help
themselves by doing recommended neck exercises as
well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
