Tuesday’s Tip- neck pain treatments
Here is a quick example of how we treat neck pain. We utilize soft tissue therapy, adjustments and exercise.
Research shows that these together increase function and end pain much faster
"Four 20-min sessions of manual therapy and exercise, along with a home-exercise program, was found to be more effective than an exercise protocol and a home-exercise program in improving the neck disability index, flexion-rotation test, pain intensity, and pressure pain threshold, in the short, medium, and medium-long term in patients with chronic neck pain and upper rotation restriction. Cervical range of motion improved with the addition of manual therapy in the medium and medium-long term."
