Neck Pain and Loss of Range of Motion

There could be many reasons of why you might have a limited range of motion in your neck resulting in neck pain and stiffness. A couple of the reasons could be from a pinched nerve or loss of spine alignment.

Thatcher Chiropractic in Colorado Springs relates a research publication from the journal Spine. A study examined 40 people of which 14 had “neck pain” relative to the other 26 in the “normal” group. It was found that the neck pain group showed a decreased range of motion in moving their neck to the left and stretching at the neck while sitting. Decreased ranges of motion and muscle endurance are early signs of neck pain and spasm. We address two issues in the treatment of most neck issues: neck range of motion by manipulation or adjustment and strength through exercises.

If our office detects a decrease in range of motion and neck strength early, it is likely the key to prevention of neck pain worsening and degenerative changes in the spine later.
