Everything has its role. Everything satisfies
a need. In managing neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization
have their roles in treating the pain,
disability and range of motion dysfunction. They are
needed. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC treats many La Grande neck
pain sufferers to restore their lost range of motion due to pain.
Stretching is recently found to be particularly
beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan.
BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization,
nutrition, exercise, and research-suggested stretching in the
overall treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific
mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC uses
Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to address neck
pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols produced
complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to
a large C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox®
flexion distraction delivered pain reduction
in 13.2 treatments (range 6 to 37). (2) A newer
paper states that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the incorporation
of stretching to the plan was more helpful at improving
cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges
of motion without affecting pain and
disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization
come into play. They help address the pain and disability component.
Adding stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is
beneficial and has its role in treating neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another research project further stated
that neck stretching is a most helpful physical
therapy intervention. Static and
diagonal active stretching were helpful at reducing
neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Further,
cervical range of motion values significantly rose
at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study indicating
positive long-term effects of stretching for neck pain,
disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain
relief studies, Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC makes certain to share
benefits of a variety of ways to reduce neck pain.
