What is the result of neck pain? It keeps
you from moving your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy
that way! It prevents us from doing things that could
damage us. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Fernandina Beach chiropractic at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic can help ease
neck pain and reestablish 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 aches

lateral, and rotational motions have been documented in
normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to move
your neck influences your life, think about
baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during
preseason were found to be at increased risk of game
time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability during
the season. (2) That is very life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Fernandina Beach 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

is that previous cervical spondylosis – degenerative
changes in the cervical spine that often come 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 constrict the airway space such as come
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Fernandina Beach chiropractor understands
