Palmer Chiropractic Center Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

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 it back.

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 well.
