Vancouver Disc Centers Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

What does neck pain do? It prevents you from moving 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 alter daily living. Vancouver chiropractic at Vancouver Disc Centers can help reduce neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not merely does neck pain limit cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions to do what must be done. If the neck hurts 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 move your neck alters your life, consider baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during preseason were found to be at higher risk of game time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability throughout the season. (2) That’s really life-changing for them and their life dreams! Know that your Vancouver 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 it back.

NECK ISSUES INFLUENCE SLEEP APNEA

Another curious cervical spine discovery is that preceding 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 related. Such sleep apnea is connected to cervical spine changes that tighten the airway space such as happen with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Vancouver chiropractor know well.
