Eugene 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 Eugene chiropractor at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic. Your chiropractor actually looks at how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause discomfort, neck pain, and/or shoulder pain.  Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic relieves such pain gently and effectively for Eugene neck pain and Eugene shoulder pain patients. Eugene 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? This is a common condition in us humans. It can cause 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 Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic have a special form of Eugene spinal manipulation to aid this condition called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The treatment is established on the anatomical changes documented in biomechanical research studies to occur 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 regaining normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal cord stimulation to produce chemical changes that lessen pain. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic has research studies that document these pain-relieving changes for which Eugene neck pain patients come to the office.  Eugene chiropractic care at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is based on such studies.


A research study published in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that used at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic - 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 reported that there was increased 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 Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
