Chiropractic Care Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

What does neck pain do? It prevents you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is effective that way! It keeps us from doing things that could hurt. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living. West Palm Beach chiropractic at Chiropractic Care can help reduce neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not merely does neck pain restrict cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions to do what must be done. If the neck hurts when turning to the left, you won’t do that. That’s a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension, lateral, and rotational motions have been noted in normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to reposition your neck alters your life, consider baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during preseason were found to be at higher risk of game time loss and shoulder and elbow disability during the season. (2) That is very life-altering for them and their life dreams! Know that your West Palm Beach chiropractor can tell from a thorough clinical examination just how pain is affecting your normal range of motion and how to help you (your being a baseball player or not!) get it back.

NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA

Another interesting cervical spine discovery is that preceding cervical spondylosis – degenerative changes in the cervical spine that often appear with aging, bringing about vertebral bone degeneration, disc degeneration, bone spur formation and the like - and obstructive sleep apnea are related. Such sleep apnea is associated with cervical spine changes that constrict the airway space that come with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal issue your West Palm Beach chiropractor know well.
