I have been having pain in the base of the back of my neck and between my shoulders since Tuesday 27th. It hurts mainly if I bend over, or look straight up. Doesn't hurt from side to side too much. I tried everything to help, heat, cold, wellness patches, flexall, massage, 600mg Ibuprofren, and rest...nothing eased it at all. Finally I gave in to see my husband's Chiropracter today. He said I was in bad shape and would have to have alot of work done. One vertebrae was out of alignment and he showed me by pressing on and it hurt really bad. He said it was pressing on a nerve and another one was doing the same on the left side of my neck. He did an alignment which did feel better and said I also had a torn ligament in my neck. He told me I had to have had a traumatic accident or something done to me to get me in that shape and I had been like this for a long time now and it just now started to show. I can't think of anything, no accidents, etc. I even asked my mom about when I was little, she said I never got hurt bad to cause that to happen. SO, anyway, I don't know what to do next....he wants me to continue to see him cause he said "I had a lot of work that has to be done". Only thing is our new insurance doesn't cover any Chiropractic care, so the money will be coming out of our pocket. He didn't tell me anything to do as for pain right now. So here it is only a couple of hours after seeing him and my pain is back!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
