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

Ever heard the saying “get your head on straight”?  It has a whole other meaning to your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. Your chiropractor actually looks at how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause pain, neck pain, with or without shoulder pain.  The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR eases such pain gently and successfully for Colorado Springs neck pain and Colorado Springs shoulder pain patients. Colorado Springs chiropractic care is evidence-based and has research-documented protocols for neck pain relief.


Does your head sit forward on your neck? This is a common condition in us humans. It can trigger 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 The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR have a special form of Colorado Springs spinal manipulation to help this condition called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The treatment is based on the anatomical changes documented in biomechanical research studies to be produced when this spinal manipulation is delivered. Namely the increase in the size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the dropping 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR has research studies that provide evidence of these pain-relieving transformations for which Colorado Springs neck pain patients come to the office.  Colorado Springs chiropractic care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is based on such studies.


A research study issued in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that used at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR - 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, enhanced positioning of the head on the neck, reduced neck and head pain and cut disability. So, if this description describes your neck and head posture, seek care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
