What does neck pain do? It keeps
you from moving your neck as you want. Pain is effective
like that! It prevents us from doing things that could
hurt. Ok, that is not all bad! But neck pain can disturb
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Williamson chiropractic at Apple Country Chiropractic can help relieve
neck pain and restore its normal motion.
NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION
Not only does neck pain restrict
cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions
to do what needs to be done. If the neck aches
when twisting to the right, you’ll
not do that. That is a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension,
lateral, and rotational motions have been recorded in
normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to move
your neck alters your life, consider
baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during
preseason had higher risk of game
time loss and shoulder and elbow disability throughout
the season. (2) That is very life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Williamson 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 discovery
is that preceding cervical spondylosis – degenerative
changes in the cervical spine that often come with aging, resulting in vertebral bone degeneration, disc degeneration, bone
spur formation and the like - and obstructive sleep apnea are related.
Such sleep apnea is linked to cervical spine
changes that constrict the airway space that happen
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Williamson chiropractor understands
