Ever heard the saying “get your head on
straight”? It has an entirely
different meaning to your Peoria chiropractor at
Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture. 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. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture
eases such pain gently and successfully
for Peoria neck pain and Peoria shoulder pain patients.
Peoria 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 cause 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 Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture have a specific
form of Peoria spinal manipulation to help 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 given. Namely 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. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture has research studies that provide evidence of
these pain-relieving changes for which Peoria
neck pain patients choose care at Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture. Peoria chiropractic care at
Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture is based on such studies.
NECK POSITION RESTORATION
A research study published in December 2017 demonstrated
that spinal manipulation - like that delivered at
Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture - accomplishes this pain relief. It is given
in the upper thoracic spine (between the upper shoulder
areas). (1) The treatment can be done on specially designed spinal manipulation tables
for treating such conditions. This research paper reported
that there was increased range of motion, improved
positioning of the head on the neck, decreased neck and head pain
and lessened disability. So, if you or a loved one or
friend finds this description to fit your neck
and head posture, obtain care at Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture for this specialized
type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
