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

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 and 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

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
