What does neck pain do? It prevents
you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy
that way! It prevents us from doing things that could
damage us. Ok, that is not all bad! But neck pain can bother
more than just motion. It can alter daily living.
Toronto chiropractic at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre can help relieve
neck pain and restore its normal motion.
NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION
Not only does neck pain restrict
cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions
to do what must be done. If the neck smarts
when twisting to the left, you won’t 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 capabiloity to move
your neck influences your life, consider
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 very life-altering
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Toronto 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’re a baseball player or not!) get
NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA
Another interesting cervical spine discovery
is that prior 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 associated with cervical spine
changes that tighten the airway space that happen
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Toronto chiropractor understands
