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.
GENTLE COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN
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 come to the office. West Des Moines chiropractic care at
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is based on such studies.
NECK POSITION RESTORATION
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.
