Spine & Sports Rehab Center Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

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.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not merely does neck pain limit cervical spine motion, it also necessitates compensatory motions to do what needs to be done. If the neck smarts when twisting to the left, you’ll not do that. That is a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension, lateral, and rotational motions have been noted in normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to reposition your neck influences your life, think about baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during 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 it back.

NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA

Another curious cervical spine finding is that preceding 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 Baton Rouge chiropractor know well.
