Preston Chiropractic Care Helps Get Your Head on Straight for Neck Pain Relief

Ever been told to “get your head on straight”?  It has an entirely other meaning to your Preston chiropractor at Chiropractic Associates. 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 Associates lessens such pain gently and successfully for Preston neck pain and Preston shoulder pain patients. Preston chiropractic care is evidence-based and has research-documented protocols for neck pain relief.


Do you find that your head sits forward on your neck? This is a common condition in us humans. It can produce neck and shoulder pain, headache and loss of neck motion (such as turning to look behind to back up your car). Chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Associates have a specific form of Preston spinal manipulation to help this condition called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The treatment is established on the anatomical changes verified in biomechanical research studies to be produced when this spinal manipulation is given. Specifically the increase in the size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the reduction of the pressure inside 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 create chemical changes that reduce pain. Chiropractic Associates has research studies that document these pain-relieving changes for which Preston neck pain patients come to the office.  Preston chiropractic care at Chiropractic Associates is based on such studies.


A research study published in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that given at Chiropractic Associates - achieves this pain relief. It is delivered to the upper thoracic spine (between the upper shoulder areas). (1) The treatment can be done on specialized spinal manipulation tables designed for treating such conditions. This research paper reported that there was enhanced range of motion, increased positioning of the head on the neck, decreased neck and head pain and reduced disability. So, if you or a loved one or friend finds this description to fit your neck and head posture, seek care at Chiropractic Associates for this particular type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
