What is the result of neck pain? It keeps
you from repositioning your neck as you want. Pain is crazy
like that! It prevents us from doing things that could
damage us. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Malverne chiropractic at Malverne Health & Wellness can help lessen
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 needs to be done. If the neck hurts
when twisting to the left, you won’t 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, consider
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 during
the season. (2) That’s very life-altering
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Malverne chiropractor
can know from a thorough clinical examination just how pain is
affecting 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 finding
is that prior 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 related.
Such sleep apnea is connected to cervical spine
changes that tighten the airway space that occur
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Malverne chiropractor know
