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

March 27, 2018

Ever been told to “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 discomfort, neck pain, and/or shoulder pain.  Johnson Chiropractic eases 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.


Does your head sit forward on your neck? It’s 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 Johnson Chiropractic have a special form of Richmond spinal manipulation to help this condition called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The treatment is based on the anatomical changes documented in biomechanical research studies to occur when this spinal manipulation is given. Namely the increase in the size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the dropping 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 create chemical changes that reduce pain. Johnson Chiropractic has research studies that document these pain-relieving changes for which Richmond neck pain patients come to the office.  Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic is based on such studies.


A research study issued in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that given at Johnson Chiropractic - accomplishes this pain relief. It is given in the upper thoracic spine (between the upper shoulder areas). (1) The treatment can be given on specially designed spinal manipulation tables for treating such conditions. This research paper noted that there was increased range of motion, improved 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 is gentle and effective.
