Buffalo, NY Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing moving 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 created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other reatures also may influence when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we’re looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Buffalo, NY neck pain with or without arm pain arises. The Novelli Wellness Center, too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the form 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 studied just how mobilization and manipulation influenced patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both improved 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 reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of Buffalo, NY chiropractic care at The Novelli Wellness Center. Your Buffalo, NY chiropractor keeps current on the research-proven means to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge two forms of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were successful in this study for decreasing pain, improving range of motion, and decreasing disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) The Novelli Wellness Center strives 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 combining long-y distraction with range of motion normal to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, and a combination of them all! Buffalo, NY neck pain and arm pain patients enjoy the positive clinical outcome!

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

At The Novelli Wellness Center, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a study of 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy cared for with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% reduction in pain scores after a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She had 24 visits over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Buffalo, NY neck pain and Buffalo, NY arm pain relief.
