What is the result of neck pain? It keeps
you from moving your neck the way you want. Pain is effective
like that! It prevents us from doing things that could
damage us. Ok, that is not all bad! But neck pain can disturb
more than just motion. It can alter daily living.
Paramus chiropractic at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center can help lessen
neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

cervical spine motion, it also necessitates compensatory motions

normal patients. (1) And if you think your capabiloity to move
your neck alters your life, consider
baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during
preseason had increased risk of game
time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability throughout
the season. (2) That’s very life-altering
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Paramus chiropractor
can know 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

about vertebral bone degeneration, disc degeneration, bone
spur formation and the like - and obstructive sleep apnea are associated.
Such sleep apnea is associated with cervical spine
changes that constrict the airway space that happen
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Paramus chiropractor understands
