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

Ever been told to “get your head on straight”?  It has an entirely different meaning to your Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. 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.  Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation alleviates such pain gently and successfully for Carrolltown neck pain and Carrolltown shoulder pain patients. Carrolltown 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 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 Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation have a special form of Carrolltown 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 be produced when this spinal manipulation is given. Namely the increased size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the reduction of the pressure within 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 create chemical changes that lessen pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has research studies that provide evidence of these pain-relieving transformations for which Carrolltown neck pain patients come to the office.  Carrolltown chiropractic care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is built on such studies.


A research study issued in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that used at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation - achieves this pain relief. It is given in the upper thoracic spine (between the upper shoulder areas). (1) The treatment can be given on specially designed spinal manipulation tables for treating such conditions. This research paper showed that there was increased 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, obtain care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
