Upper Cervical Correction For Natural Neck Pain Relief

As the world continues to be introduced to the real (and natural) benefits that upper cervical chiropractic can provide, we, at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia are delighted to share new studies to back up these claims in order to convince those suffering with a myriad of ailments to give us a try to gain relief the right way.
An incredible study, conducted back in 2009, has revealed the benefits of (what is called) an upper cervical low force correction for helping relieve disability and neck pain. However, more recent research from 2015 has showed a range of upper cervical techniques to be effective at relieving a wide range of conditions including neck pain with no major negative reactions.

Study on Neck Pain and Disability

The study in question involved inspecting the patient files of a particular Orthospinology practice over the previous year in order to determine the effects (if any) of an upper cervical low force correction.
A total of 60 patients met the necessary criteria for the study. A comparison was made utilizing the NDI scale (1-100) in order to measure neck disability and the NRS scale (1-10) was used to measure pain. These measurements were taken after a two week period and were then divided into two categories: the patients who received a correction of greater than 30% or less than 30%.
The group that received an atlas correction of greater than 30% saw the more outstanding results:

  • NDI was reduced from 35.4 down to 12.7
  • NRS was reduced from 5.89 down to 1.64

However, even the group that experienced less than 30% of a correction still benefited:

  • NDI was reduced from 33.8 down to 21.2
  • NRS was reduced from 5.92 down to 2.23

These results are very promising, to say the least, when it comes to utilizing low force corrections to achieve massive relief from neck pain.

Neck Pain and Upper Cervical Chiropractic

The 2015 research we previously mentioned revealed that upper cervical chiropractic care, specifically, helped to relieve 62% of neck pain cases in under 17 days.
Some of this research particularly showed neck pain relief for patients who were suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, while also showing no serious adverse reactions, whatsoever, to upper cervical care. This reinforces the fact that upper cervical chiropractic care is a natural method for helping patients avoid the harmful side effects of surgery or dangerous (and addictive) medications.
