What is the result of neck pain? It keeps
you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is effective
like that! It prevents us from doing things that could
hurt. Ok, that is not all bad! But neck pain can bother
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Carrolltown chiropractic at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 necessitates compensatory motions
to do what must be done. If the neck smarts

lateral, and rotational motions have been recorded in
normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability 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 as well as shoulder and elbow disability during
the season. (2) That’s very life-altering
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Carrolltown 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

changes in the cervical spine that often happen 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 constrict the airway space such as happen
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Carrolltown chiropractor know
