Ever been told to “get your head on
straight”? It has a whole
different meaning to your Chicago chiropractor at
Chiropractic Care. Your chiropractor actually studies how your head
is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause discomfort,
neck pain, and/or shoulder pain. Chiropractic Care
lessens such pain gently and successfully
for Chicago neck pain and Chicago shoulder pain patients.
Chicago chiropractic care is evidence-based and has research-documented
protocols for neck pain relief.
GENTLE COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN
Does your head sit
forward on your neck? It’s a common condition in us humans.
It can cause neck and shoulder pain, headache and loss of
neck motion (such as looking behind to back up your car).
Chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Care have a particular
form of Chicago spinal manipulation to help this condition
called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The
treatment is established on the anatomical changes documented
in biomechanical research studies to occur when this spinal
manipulation is delivered. Namely the increased size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the reduction of the pressure within the intervertebral
disc, the increased disc space height, the recovery
of normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal
cord stimulation to produce chemical changes that lessen
pain. Chiropractic Care has research studies that document
these pain-relieving transformations for which Chicago
neck pain patients come to the office. Chicago chiropractic care at
Chiropractic Care is built on such studies.
NECK POSITION RESTORATION
A research study published in December 2017 demonstrated
that spinal manipulation - like that used at
Chiropractic Care - accomplishes this pain relief. It is delivered to the upper thoracic spine (between the upper shoulder
areas). (1) The treatment can be given on specialized spinal
manipulation tables designed
for treating such conditions. This research paper noted
that there was improved range of motion, enhanced
positioning of the head on the neck, decreased neck and head pain
and lessened disability. So, if you or a loved one or
friend finds this description to fit your neck
and head posture, seek care at Chiropractic Care for this particular
type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
