BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES

Disc Centers Of America incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the overall treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Disc Centers Of America uses The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to address neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to a big C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 cervical spine radiculopathy patients, Cox® flexion distraction produced pain reduction in 13.2 treatments (ranging from 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition of stretching to the plan was more helpful at enhancing cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion without affecting pain and disability. (3) That’s where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help relieve the pain and disability component. Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is beneficial and has its role in addressing neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is key! Another research project further stated that neck stretching is one of the most helpful physical therapy interventions.  Static and diagonal active stretching were effective at reducing neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Further, cervical range of motion values significantly showed increases 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, Disc Centers Of America makes sure to share benefits of a variety of ways to decrease neck pain.
