Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is a familiar condition drawing patients to our Baton Rouge chiropractic clinic! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation finds that chronic neck pain is a prevalent issue nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is prepared to help coordinate some neck pain relief with a Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options flourish. One popular approach is manual therapy. (Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is combining the two. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself improved perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise decreased disability sooner than manual therapy. (1) A further research project assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise by itself over a month. Manual therapy with exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise by itself. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation has found that patient participation improves clinical outcomes, too. Merging the most effective therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation follows the research. Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, dropped intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of both that using both was beneficial. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a report on cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation realizes that Baton Rouge neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises as well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
