What is the result of neck pain? It prevents
you from moving your neck as you want. Pain is crazy
that way! It keeps us from doing things that could
damage us. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Lynchburg chiropractic at Palmer Chiropractic Center 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 necessitates compensatory motions
to do what needs to be done. If the neck smarts
when turning to the right, you’ll
not 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 move
your neck alters your life, think about
baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during
preseason had higher risk of game
time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability during
the season. (2) That’s really life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Lynchburg chiropractor
can tell from a thorough clinical examination just what pain is doing to your normal range of motion and how to help
you (your being a baseball player or not!) get
NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA
Another interesting cervical spine finding
is that prior cervical spondylosis – degenerative
changes in the cervical spine that often come 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 happen
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Lynchburg chiropractor understands
