I have a cconditon in which I have almost no mobility in my upper back, shoulders and neck.

I cannot tilt my head back nor can I lift my upper arms above shoulder level.

The only diagnosis the VA can give is it is some form of arthritis and they treated me briefly with massage therapy but cancelled it because they believed it wasn't effective.

Any suggestions?

  • :) See a "good" chiropractor.. If he helps your condition he's good.. Other wise try another one.. Also buy a "Body Bridge" and use it.. You won't need the good Chiroprator but barely.. In turn you will save lots of money..;)

  • You should see a Rheumatologist, it could be Spondylitis.
