Vancouver Spine Care Centre Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

What does neck pain do? It keeps you from moving your neck the way you want. Pain is effective like that! It keeps us from doing things that could hurt. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother more than just motion. It can alter daily living. Vancouver chiropractic at Vancouver Spine Care Centre can help lessen neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not only does neck pain limit cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions to do what needs to be done. If the neck aches when twisting to the right, you’ll not do that. That is a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension, lateral, and rotational motions have been documented 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 were found to be at increased risk of game time loss and shoulder and elbow disability during the season. (2) That’s really life-altering for them and their life dreams! Know that your Vancouver 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 are a baseball player or not!) get it back.

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 linked to cervical spine changes that tighten the airway space that happen with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Vancouver chiropractor understands well.
