Lynchburg Chiropractic Care Helps Get Your Head on Straight for Neck Pain Relief

Ever been told to “get your head on straight”?  It has a whole other meaning to your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center. Your chiropractor actually looks at how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause pain, neck pain, and/or shoulder pain.  Palmer Chiropractic Center lessens such pain gently and effectively for Lynchburg neck pain and Lynchburg shoulder pain patients. Lynchburg chiropractic care is evidence-based and has research-documented protocols for neck pain relief.


Does your head sit forward on your neck? It 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 Palmer Chiropractic Center have a special form of Lynchburg spinal manipulation to aid 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 increase in the size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the dropping of the pressure within 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 create chemical changes that lessen pain. Palmer Chiropractic Center has research studies that provide evidence of these pain-relieving changes for which Lynchburg neck pain patients choose care at Palmer Chiropractic Center.  Lynchburg chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Center is based on such studies.


A research study published in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that delivered at Palmer Chiropractic Center - achieves this pain relief. It is given in the upper thoracic spine (between the upper shoulder areas). (1) The treatment can be done 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 cut disability. So, if you or a loved one or friend finds this description to fit your neck and head posture, obtain care at Palmer Chiropractic Center for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
