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

March 27, 2018

Ever heard the saying “get your head on straight”?  It has a whole different meaning to your Georgetown chiropractor at Dr. Butwell. 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.  Dr. Butwell alleviates such pain gently and successfully for Georgetown neck pain and Georgetown shoulder pain patients. Georgetown 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 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 Dr. Butwell have a particular form of Georgetown 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. Specifically the increased size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the dropping of the pressure within the intervertebral disc, the heightened disc space, the regaining normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal cord stimulation to produce chemical changes that lessen pain. Dr. Butwell has research studies that document these pain-relieving transformations for which Georgetown neck pain patients choose care at Dr. Butwell.  Georgetown chiropractic care at Dr. Butwell is built on such studies.


A research study issued in December 2017 showed that spinal manipulation - like that given at Dr. Butwell - 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 noted that there was improved 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, seek care at Dr. Butwell for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
