Dr. Butwell Helps Restore Limited Neck Range of Motion and Pain

June 30, 2020

What does neck pain do? It prevents you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy that way! It prevents us from doing things that could hurt. Ok, that is not all bad! But neck pain can bother more than just motion. It can alter daily living. Georgetown chiropractic at Dr. Butwell 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 when twisting to the left, you won’t do that. That’s a compensatory motion. Normal flexion/extension, lateral, and rotational motions have been recorded 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 as well as shoulder and elbow disability throughout the season. (2) That’s very life-changing for them and their life dreams! Know that your Georgetown chiropractor can know 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.


Another interesting cervical spine discovery is that preceding cervical spondylosis – degenerative changes in the cervical spine that often happen with aging, bringing about 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 constrict the airway space such as come with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Georgetown chiropractor understands well.
