What is the result of neck pain? It prevents
you from repositioning your neck the way 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 alter daily living.
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic at Spinal Care Clinic can help lessen
neck pain and restore its normal motion.
NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION
Not merely does neck pain restrict
cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions
to do what must be done. If the neck aches
when twisting to the left, you will not do that. That is a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension,
lateral, and rotational motions have been recorded in
normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to move
your neck affects your life, consider
baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during
preseason were found to be at increased risk of game
time loss and shoulder and elbow disability throughout
the season. (2) That’s very life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor
can tell 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
NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA
Another curious cervical spine discovery
is that prior cervical spondylosis – degenerative
changes in the cervical spine that often come 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 occur
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor understands
