What is the result of neck pain? It keeps
you from repositioning your neck as you want. Pain is crazy
like that! 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.
Millville chiropractic at Wilson Family Chiropractic can help relieve
neck pain and restore its normal motion.
NECK PAIN LIMITS MOTION

lateral, and rotational motions have been noted 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 were found to be at increased risk of game
time loss and shoulder and elbow disability during
the season. (2) That’s very life-altering
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Millville chiropractor
can tell from a thorough clinical examination just how pain is
affecting your normal range of motion and how to help
you (whether you’re a baseball player or not!) get

changes in the cervical spine that often appear 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 that come
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Millville chiropractor understands
