What does neck pain do? It keeps
you from repositioning your neck as 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.
Severna Park chiropractic at Back And Neck Care Center can help lessen
neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.
NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION
Not merely does neck pain limit
cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions
to do what needs to be done. If the neck smarts
when turning to the left, you won’t do that. That is a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension,
lateral, and rotational motions have been documented in
normal patients. (1) And if you think your capabiloity to reposition
your neck affects your life, consider
baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during
preseason were found to be at higher risk of game
time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability during
the season. (2) That’s really life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Severna Park chiropractor
can know from a thorough clinical examination just how pain is
affecting your normal range of motion and how to help
you (whether you’re a baseball player or not!) get

is that prior 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 connected to cervical spine
changes that tighten the airway space that happen
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Severna Park chiropractor know
