Manahawkin 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 different meaning to your Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center. 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.  Manahawkin Chiropractic Center lessens such pain gently and successfully for Manahawkin neck pain and Manahawkin shoulder pain patients. Manahawkin 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 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 Manahawkin Chiropractic Center have a special form of Manahawkin spinal manipulation to aid this condition called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The treatment is based 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 reduction 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 reduce pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center has research studies that provide evidence of these pain-relieving transformations for which Manahawkin neck pain patients choose care at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center.  Manahawkin chiropractic care at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is built on such studies.


A research study issued in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that used at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center - accomplishes 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, improved 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, obtain care at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center for this particular type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
