What does neck pain do? It keeps
you from moving your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy
that way! It prevents us from doing things that could
damage us. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can disturb
more than just motion. It can alter daily living.
Auburn chiropractic at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. can help reduce
neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.
NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION
Not only does neck pain restrict
cervical spine motion, it also necessitates compensatory motions
to do what needs to be done. If the neck smarts
when twisting to the left, you will not do that. That’s a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension,
lateral, and rotational motions have been noted in
normal patients. (1) And if you think your capabiloity to move
your neck influences your life, think about
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 is really life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Auburn chiropractor
can know from a thorough clinical examination just what pain is doing to your normal range of motion and how to help
you (your being a baseball player or not!) get
NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA
Another interesting cervical spine discovery
is that previous cervical spondylosis – degenerative
changes in the cervical spine that often come 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 occur
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Auburn chiropractor understands
