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

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
