Ever been told to “get your head on
straight”? It has an entirely
other meaning to your McHenry chiropractor at
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic. Your chiropractor actually studies how your head
is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause discomfort,
neck pain, and/or shoulder pain. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic
relieves such pain gently and successfully
for McHenry neck pain and McHenry shoulder pain patients.
McHenry 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 is 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 OrthoIllinois Chiropractic have a specific
form of McHenry spinal manipulation to help this condition
called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The
treatment is established on the anatomical changes documented
in biomechanical research studies to occur when this spinal
manipulation is given. Specifically 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 recovery
of normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal
cord stimulation to produce chemical changes that lessen
pain. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic has research studies that provide evidence of
these pain-relieving transformations for which McHenry
neck pain patients choose care at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic. McHenry chiropractic care at
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is based on such studies.
NECK POSITION RESTORATION
A research study published in December 2017 showed
that spinal manipulation - like that used at
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic - achieves 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 improved range of motion, increased
positioning of the head on the neck, decreased neck and head pain
and reduced disability. So, if this description describes your neck
and head posture, seek care at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic for this particular
type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
