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
hurt. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can bother
more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Buffalo, NY chiropractic at The Novelli Wellness Center can help lessen
neck pain and restore its normal motion.

lateral, and rotational motions have been documented in
normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to reposition
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 is really life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Buffalo, NY 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

spur formation and the like - and obstructive sleep apnea are related.
Such sleep apnea is linked to cervical spine
changes that constrict the airway space such as occur
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Buffalo, NY chiropractor know
