What is the result of neck pain? It keeps
you from moving your neck as you want. Pain is crazy
that way! 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.
Ashburn chiropractic at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can help ease
neck pain and reestablish 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 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 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 and shoulder and elbow disability throughout
the season. (2) That is really life-altering
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Ashburn chiropractor
can know 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
NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA
Another interesting cervical spine finding
is that previous 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 associated.
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 Ashburn chiropractor understands
