Ottawa 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 Ottawa chiropractor at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider. Your chiropractor actually looks at how your head is aligned on your neck. That alignment – or misalignment – may cause pain, neck pain, with or without shoulder pain.  The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider relieves such pain gently and successfully for Ottawa neck pain and Ottawa shoulder pain patients. Ottawa chiropractic care is evidence-based and has research-documented protocols for neck pain relief.


Does your head sit forward on your neck? It’s a common condition in us humans. It can produce neck and shoulder pain, headache and loss of neck motion (such as looking behind to back up your car). Chiropractors like yours at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider have a special form of Ottawa spinal manipulation to aid this condition called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The treatment is established on the anatomical changes verified 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 dropping 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 create chemical changes that lessen pain. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider has research studies that provide evidence of these pain-relieving changes for which Ottawa neck pain patients choose care at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider.  Ottawa chiropractic care at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is built on such studies.


A research study published in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that given at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider - achieves this pain relief. It is given in 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, decreased 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, seek care at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
