Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain06/30/2020What does neck pain do? It prevents you from moving your neck as you want. Pain is effective that way! It prevents us from doing things that could hurt. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother more than just motion. It can alter daily living. Fort Wayne chiropractic at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc can help relieve neck pain and restore its normal motion. NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION Not only does neck pain limit cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions to do what must be done. If the neck smarts when twisting to the left, you will not 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 influences 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 and shoulder and elbow disability throughout the season. (2) That’s very life-changing for them and their life dreams! Know that your Fort Wayne 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’re a baseball player or not!) get it back. NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA Another interesting cervical spine discovery is that prior cervical spondylosis – degenerative changes in the cervical spine that often happen 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 connected to cervical spine changes that constrict the airway space that come with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal issue your Fort Wayne chiropractor understands well.
