Ever been told to “get your head on straight”? It has a whole other meaning to your Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic. Your chiropractor actually looks at how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause pain, neck pain, and/or shoulder pain. Young Chiropractic relieves such pain gently and effectively for Easley neck pain and Easley shoulder pain patients. Easley 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? 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 Young Chiropractic have a particular form of Easley spinal manipulation to aid 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 delivered. Specifically the increase in the size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the dropping of the pressure within the intervertebral disc, the heightened disc space, the regaining normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal cord stimulation to produce chemical changes that reduce pain. Young Chiropractic has research studies that provide evidence of these pain-relieving transformations for which Easley neck pain patients come to the office. Easley chiropractic care at Young Chiropractic is based on such studies.
NECK POSITION RESTORATION
A research study issued in December 2017 showed that spinal manipulation - like that used at Young Chiropractic - 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 showed that there was increased range of motion, improved positioning of the head on the neck, reduced neck and head pain and cut disability. So, if this description describes your neck and head posture, seek care at Young Chiropractic for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
