Pflugerville Wellness Center Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

What does neck pain do? It keeps you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy that way! It prevents us from doing things that could damage us. Ok, that is not all bad! But neck pain can bother more than just motion. It can alter daily living. Pflugerville chiropractic at Pflugerville Wellness Center can help ease neck pain and restore its normal motion.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not merely does neck pain restrict cervical spine motion, it also necessitates compensatory motions to do what needs to be done. If the neck smarts when turning to the left, you will not do that. That is a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension, lateral, and rotational motions have been documented in normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to reposition your neck alters your life, think about baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during preseason had increased risk of game time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability throughout the season. (2) That’s very life-changing for them and their life dreams! Know that your Pflugerville 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 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 such as occur with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal issue your Pflugerville chiropractor know well.
