Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation. Your chiropractor actually studies how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause pain, neck pain, and/or shoulder pain.  Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation relieves such pain gently and effectively for Baton Rouge neck pain and Baton Rouge shoulder pain patients. Baton Rouge 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 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 Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation have a special form of Baton Rouge spinal manipulation to aid this condition called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The treatment is based on the anatomical changes verified in biomechanical research studies to be produced when this spinal manipulation is given. Namely the increase in the size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the reduction of the pressure inside the intervertebral disc, the heightened disc space, the recovery of normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal cord stimulation to produce chemical changes that reduce pain. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation has research studies that document these pain-relieving transformations for which Baton Rouge neck pain patients choose care at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation.  Baton Rouge chiropractic care at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is built on such studies.


A research study published in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that used at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation - accomplishes this pain relief. It is given in the upper thoracic spine (between the upper shoulder areas). (1) The treatment can be done on specially designed spinal manipulation tables for treating such conditions. This research paper noted that there was increased range of motion, increased positioning of the head on the neck, decreased neck and head pain and cut disability. So, if you or a loved one or friend finds this description to fit your neck and head posture, seek care at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
