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 is not all bad! But neck pain can disturb
more than just motion. It can alter daily living.
Manchester chiropractic at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries can help lessen
neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

time loss and shoulder and elbow disability throughout
the season. (2) That’s really life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Manchester 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

Such sleep apnea is associated with cervical spine
changes that constrict the airway space that come
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Manchester chiropractor know
