Some days are worse then others.

Heres what happened.

About 2 years ago I was doing an exercise called "Military Press" You lift above your head.

As soon as I lifted slightly above my chin imense and total pain errupted from my neck area. I had to drop the weights.

For several days I could not turn my neck left or right. I choose to see if this would heal naturally and did not go to the doctor.

After a few days I did regain mobility in my neck. But ever since then I have severe pain in my neck and right shoulder blade area. This usually occurs at the end of the day or If stand in 1 position for too long.

Physical activity does not aggravate this. Basicly standing or sitting upright for extended periods of time while really doing nothing specific will aggravate it most.

The right side of my neck is always tight feeling, at the end of the day usually inflammation occurs from the right side of my neck extending down to my right shoulder blade area.

Recently Ive decided to see a Chiropractor. X-rays showed I did have some spine problems they think might be causing this problem but after doing my own research I think I may have an herniated Disc in my neck.

Would it be worth having an MRI done to know for sure? or continue with the chiropractic care?

Get the MRI to confirm, have the Doctor prescribe you a Medrol dose pack, and get into Physical Therapy for stabilization exercises and gentle traction. Do not see a Chiropractor. They'll just manipulate you and make you worse...either that, or just ultrasound and E-stim you to create a charge.
