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

What does neck pain do? It prevents you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is effective that way! It prevents us from doing things that could damage us. Ok, that is not all bad! But neck pain can bother more than just motion. It can alter daily living. Minster chiropractic at Minster Chiropractic Center can help relieve neck pain and restore its normal motion.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not only does neck pain limit cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions to do what must 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 noted in normal patients. (1) And if you think your capabiloity to move your neck affects your life, think about baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during preseason had increased risk of game time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability throughout the season. (2) That’s very life-changing for them and their life dreams! Know that your Minster chiropractor can tell from a thorough clinical examination just how pain is affecting your normal range of motion and how to help you (whether you’re a baseball player or not!) get it back.

NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA

Another curious cervical spine finding is that previous cervical spondylosis – degenerative changes in the cervical spine that often happen 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 linked to cervical spine changes that tighten the airway space that occur with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Minster chiropractor know well.
