San Jose Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the head, it also houses a variety of important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the size of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may come into play when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, San Jose neck pain with or without arm pain evolves. Chiropractic Solutions, too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization a la 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 documented just how manipulation and mobilization affected patients with neck pain of all types (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both enhanced 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 irritates nerve roots was reported to reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of San Jose chiropractic care at Chiropractic Solutions. Your San Jose chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the research-proven means to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers recognize two types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for reducing pain, increasing range of motion, and lessening disability related to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Chiropractic Solutions strives to deliver all the benefit possible to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! San Jose neck pain and arm pain patients appreciate the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Chiropractic Solutions, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s a gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy cared for with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% drop in pain scores in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman dealing with 2 years of left arm pain reported relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for San Jose neck pain and San Jose arm pain relief.
