What does neck pain do? It keeps
you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is effective

Plainville chiropractic at Layden Chiropractic can help ease
neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

normal patients. (1) And if you think your ability to reposition
your neck alters your life, consider

time loss as well as shoulder and elbow disability throughout
the season. (2) That is very life-changing
for them and their life dreams! Know that your Plainville chiropractor
can know from a thorough clinical examination just how pain is
affecting your normal range of motion and how to help
you (whether you are a baseball player or not!) get

spur formation and the like - and obstructive sleep apnea are associated.
Such sleep apnea is linked to cervical spine
changes that constrict the airway space such as come
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Plainville chiropractor understands
