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
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
