Southern New Hampshire Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

October 06, 2020

Neck pain is an everyday condition bringing patients to our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic clinic! New Hampshire Spine and Sport sees that chronic neck pain is a prevalent issue nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, New Hampshire Spine and Sport is ready to help coordinate some relief from the neck pain with a Southern New Hampshire chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options abound. One common method is manual therapy. (New Hampshire Spine and Sport uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is mixing both. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself enhanced perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise reduced disability sooner than manual therapy. (1) An additional research project compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise by itself over 4 weeks. Manual therapy with exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise alone. (2) New Hampshire Spine and Sport has found that patient participation improves clinical outcomes, too. Using the most effective therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


New Hampshire Spine and Sport goes with the research. Research revealed that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of the two that combining the two was advantageous. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) New Hampshire Spine and Sport realizes that Southern New Hampshire neck pain patients are anxious to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
