Johnson Chiropractic Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

June 30, 2020

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


Not merely does neck pain restrict cervical spine motion, it also necessitates compensatory motions to do what must be done. If the neck hurts when twisting to the left, you will not 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 capabiloity to reposition your neck affects 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’s very life-changing for them and their life dreams! Know that your Richmond chiropractor can know from a thorough clinical examination just how pain is affecting your normal range of motion and how to help you (your being a baseball player or not!) get it back.


Another interesting 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 associated. Such sleep apnea is associated with cervical spine changes that constrict the airway space that come with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal issue your Richmond chiropractor know well.
