West Des Moines Chiropractic Care Helps Get Your Head on Straight for Neck Pain Relief

Ever heard the saying “get your head on straight”?  It has an entirely different meaning to your West Des Moines chiropractor at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa. Your chiropractor actually studies how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause pain, neck pain, with or without shoulder pain.  Executive Chiropractic of Iowa lessens such pain gently and effectively for West Des Moines neck pain and West Des Moines shoulder pain patients. West Des Moines chiropractic care is evidence-based and has research-documented protocols for neck pain relief.


Do you find that your head sits 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 Executive Chiropractic of Iowa have a specific form of West Des Moines 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 be produced 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 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 lessen pain. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa has research studies that provide evidence of these pain-relieving changes for which West Des Moines neck pain patients choose care at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa.  West Des Moines chiropractic care at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is based on such studies.


A research study issued in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that used at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa - accomplishes this pain relief. It is given in 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 reported that there was enhanced range of motion, increased positioning of the head on the neck, reduced 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, seek care at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
