Ever heard the saying “get your head on
straight”? It has an entirely
different meaning to your Richmond chiropractor at
Johnson Chiropractic. Your chiropractor actually looks at how your head
is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause pain,
neck pain, with or without shoulder pain. Johnson Chiropractic
lessens such pain gently and successfully
for Richmond neck pain and Richmond shoulder pain patients.
Richmond 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 trigger neck and shoulder pain, headache and loss of
neck motion (such as looking behind to back up your car).
Chiropractors like yours at Johnson Chiropractic have a special
form of Richmond spinal manipulation to aid this condition
called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The
treatment is based on the anatomical changes verified
in biomechanical research studies to occur when this spinal
manipulation is delivered. Namely the increase
in the size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the reduction of the pressure inside the intervertebral
disc, the heightened disc space, the recovery
of normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal
cord stimulation to create chemical changes that reduce
pain. Johnson Chiropractic has research studies that document
these pain-relieving transformations for which Richmond
neck pain patients choose care at Johnson Chiropractic. Richmond chiropractic care at
Johnson Chiropractic is based on such studies.
NECK POSITION RESTORATION
A research study issued in December 2017 demonstrated
that spinal manipulation - like that delivered at
Johnson 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 noted
that there was increased range of motion, enhanced
positioning of the head on the neck, reduced 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 Johnson Chiropractic for this specialized
type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
