What does neck pain do? It keeps
you from repositioning your neck as you want. Pain is effective
like that! It keeps us from doing things that could
hurt. Ok, that is not all bad! But neck pain can disturb
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Baton Rouge chiropractic at Spine & Sports Rehab Center can help lessen
neck pain and restore its normal motion.

normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to reposition
your neck influences your life, think about

preseason had higher risk of game
time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability throughout
the season. (2) That is very life-altering
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Baton Rouge chiropractor
can tell 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

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 Baton Rouge chiropractor know
