Johnson Chiropractic Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

What is the result of neck pain? It keeps you from repositioning your neck as you want. Pain is crazy that way! It keeps us from doing things that could hurt. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living. Richmond chiropractic at Johnson Chiropractic can help relieve neck pain and restore its normal motion.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not merely does neck pain limit cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions to do what must be done. If the neck hurts when turning to the left, 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 capabiloity to reposition your neck influences your life, think about baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during preseason had increased risk of game time loss and shoulder and elbow disability during the season. (2) That is very life-altering for them and their life dreams! Know that your Richmond chiropractor can tell from a thorough clinical examination just what pain is doing to your normal range of motion and how to help you (whether you are a baseball player or not!) get it back.

NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA

Another interesting cervical spine discovery is that previous cervical spondylosis – degenerative changes in the cervical spine that often appear 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 associated with cervical spine changes that tighten the airway space such as come with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Richmond chiropractor know well.
