Montreal 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 small space. 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 reatures also may influence when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Montreal neck pain with or without arm pain evolves. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization a la Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that studied just how mobilization and manipulation impacted 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) Additionally, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion bothers nerve roots was reported to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of Montreal chiropractic care at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. Your Montreal chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the research-proven ways 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 successful in this study for decreasing pain, improving range of motion, and decreasing disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic strives to deliver all the benefit possible to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by joining 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! Montreal neck pain and arm pain patients enjoy the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic, 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 treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% drop in pain scores after 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 had 24 visits over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic blends the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Montreal neck pain and Montreal arm pain relief.
