What is the result of neck pain? It keeps
you from repositioning your neck the way you want. Pain is effective
like that! It prevents us from doing things that could

more than just motion. It can disrupt daily living.
Groton chiropractic at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office can help reduce
neck pain and restore 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 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 Groton chiropractor
can know from a thorough clinical examination just what pain is doing to 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 associated.
Such sleep apnea is linked to cervical spine
changes that constrict the airway space that come
with cervical spondylosis. (3) Cervical spondylosis is another spine condition your Groton chiropractor know
