What is the result of neck pain? It keeps
you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy
like that! It keeps us from doing things that could
damage us. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can disturb
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Sandy Springs chiropractic at Cross Chiropractic Center can help lessen
neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.
NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION
Not merely does neck pain limit
cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions
to do what needs to be done. If the neck smarts
when turning to the right, you will not do that. That’s 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 influences your life, consider
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 is very life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Sandy Springs 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 are a baseball player or not!) get
NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA
Another interesting cervical spine discovery
is that prior 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 associated with cervical spine
changes that tighten the airway space such as occur
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Sandy Springs chiropractor understands
