La Grande Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is a common condition drawing patients to our La Grande chiropractic clinic! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC sees that chronic neck pain is a frequent problem nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is here to help find some neck pain relief with a La Grande chiropractic treatment plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options flourish. One popular method is manual therapy. (Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic is exercise. A third is mixing both. A recent study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself enhanced perceived neck pain sooner than exercise. Therapeutic exercise lessened disability faster than manual therapy. (1) Another study compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise by itself over a month. Manual therapy with exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise by itself. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC has observed that patient participation boosts clinical outcomes, too. Merging the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the better option.


Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC goes with the research. Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, dropped cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of the two that using both was advantageous. (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) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC finds that La Grande neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
