What is the result of neck pain? It prevents
you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy
that way! It keeps 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 disrupt daily living.
La Grande chiropractic at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC can help ease
neck pain and restore its normal motion.

cervical spine motion, it also requires compensatory motions
to do what needs to be done. If the neck hurts

lateral, and rotational motions have been noted in
normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to reposition
your neck influences your life, think about
baseball pitchers! College baseball pitchers with limited neck motion during
preseason were found to be at higher risk of game
time loss and shoulder and elbow disability during
the season. (2) That is really life-altering
for them and their life dreams! Know that your La Grande chiropractor
can know from a thorough clinical examination just how pain is
affecting your normal range of motion and how to help
you (your being a baseball player or not!) get

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 associated with cervical spine
changes that constrict the airway space such as occur
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your La Grande chiropractor know
