Toronto Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is an everyday condition bringing patients to our Toronto chiropractic clinic! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre finds that chronic neck pain is a prevalent issue nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is ready to help find some relief from the neck pain with a Toronto chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options are plentiful. One popular method is manual therapy. (Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is mixing 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 faster than manual therapy. (1) An additional study compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over 4 weeks. Manual therapy with exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise by itself. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre has found that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes, too. Using the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre goes with the research. Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle type of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre finds that Toronto neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
