What does neck pain do? It prevents
you from moving your neck as you want. Pain is crazy
like that! It keeps us from doing things that could
hurt. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can disturb
more than just motion. It can alter daily living.
Colorado Springs chiropractic at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR can help lessen
neck pain and restore its normal motion.
NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION
Not only does neck pain restrict
cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions
to do what must be done. If the neck smarts
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 ability to move
your neck influences 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 during
the season. (2) That’s really life-altering
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Colorado Springs chiropractor
can tell 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
NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA
Another interesting cervical spine discovery
is that prior 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 connected to cervical spine
changes that tighten the airway space such as happen
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Colorado Springs chiropractor understands
