Executive Chiropractic of Iowa Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

What does neck pain do? It keeps you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy like that! It keeps 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 disrupt daily living. West Des Moines chiropractic at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa can help reduce neck pain and restore its normal motion.

NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

Not only does neck pain limit cervical spine motion, it also necessitates compensatory motions to do what must be done. If the neck smarts when turning to the left, you will 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 ability to move your neck affects your life, think about baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during preseason had increased risk of game time loss and shoulder and elbow disability during the season. (2) That’s very life-changing for them and their life dreams! Know that your West Des Moines 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 interesting 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 associated. Such sleep apnea is connected to cervical spine changes that tighten the airway space such as come with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal issue your West Des Moines chiropractor know well.
