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

Ever been told to “get your head on straight”?  It has an entirely other meaning to your Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn. 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.  Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn lessens such pain gently and successfully for Ashburn neck pain and Ashburn shoulder pain patients. Ashburn 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’s a common condition in us humans. It can trigger 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 Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn have a particular form of Ashburn 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 given. Specifically the increased size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the dropping of the pressure within the intervertebral disc, the increased disc space height, the recovery of normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal cord stimulation to create chemical changes that lessen pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn has research studies that document these pain-relieving transformations for which Ashburn neck pain patients come to the office.  Ashburn chiropractic care at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is based on such studies.


A research study published in December 2017 showed that spinal manipulation - like that given at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn - accomplishes this pain relief. It is delivered to 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 reported that there was improved range of motion, increased positioning of the head on the neck, reduced neck and head pain and reduced disability. So, if this description describes your neck and head posture, obtain care at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn for this particular type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
