Toronto 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 different meaning to your Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Your chiropractor actually studies how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause pain, neck pain, with or without shoulder pain.  Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre alleviates such pain gently and effectively for Toronto neck pain and Toronto shoulder pain patients. Toronto 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 looking behind to back up your car). Chiropractors like yours at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre have a specific form of Toronto 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 be produced when this spinal manipulation is delivered. Namely the increase in the size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the reduction of the pressure inside 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 produce chemical changes that reduce pain. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre has research studies that provide evidence of these pain-relieving transformations for which Toronto neck pain patients choose care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre.  Toronto chiropractic care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is built on such studies.


A research study published in December 2017 showed that spinal manipulation - like that delivered at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre - 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 noted that there was increased range of motion, increased positioning of the head on the neck, reduced neck and head pain and cut disability. So, if this description describes your neck and head posture, seek care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre for this particular type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
