Satterwhite Chiropractic Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

What does neck pain do? It keeps you from moving your neck the way you want. Pain is effective like that! It keeps 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. Oxford chiropractic at Satterwhite Chiropractic can help reduce neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not merely does neck pain restrict cervical spine motion, it also necessitates compensatory motions to do what must be done. If the neck hurts when twisting to the right, you’ll not do that. That’s a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension, lateral, and rotational motions have been recorded in normal patients. (1) And if you think your capabiloity to reposition your neck affects 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 as well as shoulder and elbow disability during the season. (2) That is really life-altering for them and their life dreams! Know that your Oxford 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 curious cervical spine discovery is that preceding cervical spondylosis – degenerative changes in the cervical spine that often happen with aging, resulting in vertebral bone degeneration, disc degeneration, bone spur formation and the like - and obstructive sleep apnea are related. Such sleep apnea is associated with cervical spine changes that constrict the airway space such as come with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Oxford chiropractor know well.
