Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

What is the result of neck pain? It keeps you from moving your neck the way you want. Pain is effective like that! It keeps 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 when twisting to the left, you won’t 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 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 it back.

NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA

Another curious cervical spine discovery is that previous cervical spondylosis – degenerative 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 well.
