Cervical Range of Motion Test
Many headaches, neck problems and shoulder pain result from restricted neck motion – something we help people with every day. Here’s a simple test you conduct at home to see if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care:
With their eyes still closed and without moving their shoulders, have them rotate their head fully to the left and hold for a few seconds.
With their eyes still closed and without moving their shoulders, have them rotate their head fully to the right and hold for a few seconds.
- Was the subject able to rotate their head less in one direction?
- Was motion restricted or was pain associated with turning in either direction?
- Did the subject hear any “popping” or grinding sounds?
If so, these are significant findings. Call Back ‘n Place Chiropractic to schedule a more thorough examination.
