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

Ever heard the saying “get your head on straight”?  It has an entirely other meaning to your Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic. Your chiropractor actually studies how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause discomfort, neck pain, with or without shoulder pain.  Satterwhite Chiropractic lessens such pain gently and successfully for Oxford neck pain and Oxford shoulder pain patients. Oxford 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 looking behind to back up your car). Chiropractors like yours at Satterwhite Chiropractic have a particular form of Oxford 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. Namely the increase in the 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 reduce pain. Satterwhite Chiropractic has research studies that document these pain-relieving changes for which Oxford neck pain patients choose care at Satterwhite Chiropractic.  Oxford chiropractic care at Satterwhite Chiropractic is based on such studies.


A research study published in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that used at Satterwhite Chiropractic - achieves this pain relief. It is delivered to 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 showed that there was enhanced range of motion, increased positioning of the head on the neck, decreased 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 Satterwhite Chiropractic for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
