What is the result of neck pain? It prevents you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy like that! It prevents us from doing things that could damage us. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother more than just motion. It can alter daily living. Augusta chiropractic at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic can help relieve neck pain and reestablish 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 hurts when turning to the right, you won’t 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 capabiloity to move your neck affects your life, consider baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during preseason had increased risk of game time loss and shoulder and elbow disability during the season. (2) That’s very life-changing for them and their life dreams! Know that your Augusta chiropractor can know 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 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 come 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 linked to cervical spine changes that constrict the airway space that happen with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal issue your Augusta chiropractor know well.
