I have significant range of motion issues on my neck and frequent pain. The pain is not debliitating but affects sleep. I don't know what to do. I work out and am strong relative to my age - 42 - however this chronic neck stiffness/pain is a problem I have ankylosing spondylitis. Diagnosed in my early 20's. I am losing mobility in general but it is far and away worse in my neck. My rheumatologis just shrugs his shoulders and looks at me like a dog with hip displasia. "oh well" seems to be the extent of his suggested fixes. I have to be very careful about abrupt motion with my neck - no roller coasters anymore and I have to think twice about skiiing - which I used to do. I can golf!:)
I'm looking for any suggestions anyone has...yes massages are good but what about chiropractors? Tai Chi? Accupuncture? Can I get my mobility back and attack this thing with any success?
