Spengel Chiropractic 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 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 alter daily living. McHenry chiropractic at Spengel Chiropractic can help lessen neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not merely does neck pain restrict cervical spine motion, it also necessitates compensatory motions to do what needs to 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 noted in normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to move your neck affects your life, think about baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during preseason had higher risk of game time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability throughout the season. (2) That’s really life-changing for them and their life dreams! Know that your McHenry 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 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 occur with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal issue your McHenry chiropractor understands well.
