What is the result of neck pain? It keeps
you from repositioning your neck as you want. Pain is crazy
that way! It prevents us from doing things that could
hurt. Ok, that’s not all bad! But neck pain can disturb
more than just motion. It can alter daily living.
Largo chiropractic at Hollstrom & Associates Inc can help ease
neck pain and reestablish its normal motion.

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

preseason had increased risk of game
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 Largo 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

spur formation and the like - and obstructive sleep apnea are associated.
Such sleep apnea is linked to cervical spine
changes that tighten the airway space that come
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spinal
issue your Largo chiropractor know
