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.
GENTLE COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN
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.
NECK POSITION RESTORATION
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.
