Plymouth 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 other meaning to your Plymouth chiropractor at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology. Your chiropractor actually looks at how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause pain, neck pain, and/or shoulder pain.  Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology lessens such pain gently and effectively for Plymouth neck pain and Plymouth shoulder pain patients. Plymouth 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 cause neck and shoulder pain, headache and loss of neck motion (such as looking behind to back up your car). Chiropractors like yours at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology have a specific form of Plymouth spinal manipulation to help this condition called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The treatment is based on the anatomical changes verified in biomechanical research studies to occur when this spinal manipulation is delivered. Namely the increased size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the reduction of the pressure inside 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 reduce pain. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology has research studies that document these pain-relieving changes for which Plymouth neck pain patients come to the office.  Plymouth chiropractic care at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is built on such studies.


A research study published in December 2017 showed that spinal manipulation - like that used at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology - achieves this pain relief. It is delivered to the upper thoracic spine (between the upper shoulder areas). (1) The treatment can be given on specialized spinal manipulation tables designed for treating such conditions. This research paper showed that there was enhanced range of motion, enhanced 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, obtain care at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology for this particular type of spinal manipulation. It’s gentle and effective.
