Georgetown Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

October 06, 2020

Neck pain is an everyday condition drawing patients to our Georgetown chiropractic clinic! Dr. Butwell sees that chronic neck pain is a widespread issue today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Dr. Butwell is here to help coordinate some relief from the neck pain with a Georgetown chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options abound. One common method is manual therapy. (Dr. Butwell offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is combining both. A recent study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone enhanced perceived neck pain sooner than exercise. Therapeutic exercise reduced disability sooner than manual therapy. (1) Another research project assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise by itself over 4 weeks. Manual therapy plus exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise alone. (2) Dr. Butwell has found that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes, too. Using the most effective therapies for neck pain relief is the better option.


Dr. Butwell follows 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 alone for neck pain to the combination of the two that combining the two was beneficial. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Dr. Butwell realizes that Georgetown neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises as well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
