Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care Helps Get Your Head on Straight for Neck Pain Relief03/27/2018Ever heard the saying “get your head on straight”? It has a whole other meaning to your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. Your chiropractor actually looks at how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause discomfort, neck pain, with or without shoulder pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc relieves such pain gently and successfully for Fort Wayne neck pain and Fort Wayne shoulder pain patients. Fort Wayne 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? This is 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 Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc have a particular form of Fort Wayne 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. Namely the increased size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the reduction of the pressure inside the intervertebral disc, the increased disc space height, the regaining normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal cord stimulation to produce chemical changes that lessen pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc has research studies that provide evidence of these pain-relieving changes for which Fort Wayne neck pain patients come to the office. Fort Wayne chiropractic care at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is built on such studies. NECK POSITION RESTORATION A research study published in December 2017 showed that spinal manipulation - like that delivered at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc - 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, 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 Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc for this particular type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
