Largo 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 different meaning to your Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc. 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.  Hollstrom & Associates Inc relieves such pain gently and successfully for Largo neck pain and Largo shoulder pain patients. Largo chiropractic care is evidence-based and has research-documented protocols for neck pain relief.


Does your head sit forward on your neck? It 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 Hollstrom & Associates Inc have a particular form of Largo spinal manipulation to aid this condition called Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression spinal manipulation. The treatment is based on the anatomical changes documented in biomechanical research studies to be produced when this spinal manipulation is delivered. Specifically the increase in the size of the opening through which the nerve passes, the reduction of the pressure within the intervertebral disc, the heightened disc space, the regaining normal ranges of motion of the neck, and the establishment of spinal cord stimulation to create chemical changes that reduce pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc has research studies that document these pain-relieving transformations for which Largo neck pain patients choose care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc.  Largo chiropractic care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc is based on such studies.


A research study issued in December 2017 demonstrated that spinal manipulation - like that given at Hollstrom & Associates Inc - accomplishes this pain relief. It is delivered to the upper thoracic spine (between the upper shoulder areas). (1) The treatment can be done on specially designed spinal manipulation tables for treating such conditions. This research paper noted that there was increased range of motion, enhanced positioning of the head on the neck, decreased neck and head pain and reduced disability. So, if this description describes your neck and head posture, seek care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc for this specialized type of spinal manipulation. It is gentle and effective.
