What does neck pain do? It prevents
you from moving your neck the way you want. Pain is crazy
like that! It keeps us from doing things that could
hurt. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Murfreesboro chiropractic at Most Chiropractic Clinic can help lessen
neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

normal patients. (1) And if you think your capabiloity to move
your neck affects your life, consider

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 Murfreesboro chiropractor
can tell 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 spine condition your Murfreesboro chiropractor know
