I am 33 years old, and from past 15 days , i am facing heavy pain just below the neck on left side and pain further passed on to left arm.When i consulted
Orthopedic surgeon, the X-ray was taken and he informed between C5 & C6 ring has warned out little and nerve is compressed which is causing the pain.
As a treatment from 15 days traction with 5KG tension being applied for 20 min.
Also collar neck was suggested, which I am using in day almost for 6-8 hours.
With all the above, the pain is temporarily reliving, But in the night the pain is very intensive.
Now, I request to suggest me the best possible treatment to over come the pain.
