What does neck pain do? It prevents
you from moving your neck as you want. Pain is crazy
like that! It prevents us from doing things that could
damage us. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can disturb
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Pensacola chiropractic at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center can help relieve
neck pain and restore its normal motion.

Not only does neck pain restrict
cervical spine motion, it also necessitates compensatory motions
to do what needs to be done. If the neck smarts

lateral, and rotational motions have been noted in
normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to reposition
your neck alters 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-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Pensacola chiropractor
can know from a thorough clinical examination just how pain is
affecting 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 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 linked to cervical spine
changes that tighten the airway space that happen
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Pensacola chiropractor understands
