Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

What does neck pain do? It prevents you from moving your neck the way you want. Pain is effective that way! 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 alter daily living. St. Francisville chiropractic at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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 necessitates compensatory motions to do what needs to be done. If the neck aches when twisting to the left, you will not do that. That’s a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension, lateral, and rotational motions have been documented in normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to move your neck influences 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’s really life-altering for them and their life dreams! Know that your St. Francisville chiropractor can know 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 curious cervical spine finding is that prior 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 associated. Such sleep apnea is connected to cervical spine changes that tighten the airway space such as occur with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal issue your St. Francisville chiropractor know well.
