Neck pain therapy

Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain therapy


Avatar f tn I had it done and it is amazing how much it has helped. Gone from taking megadoses of pain killers for the neck and shoulder/back pain to letting my almost full bottle of pain killers expire. The nerves do grow back but hopefully the protrusion has receded enough to not be afecting the spine/nerves. ALSO, found that this pain is not uncommon for those bending down to read the computer screen for hours on end. Hope this helps.

Avatar f tn I did have some relief with therapy, I do not take any medication. The symptoms that I feel are constant headache, neck shoulder arm pain numbness and weakness in my hands right worse than left. I also have numbness in my right bicep muscle.

I'm back at work, I do a lot of reading and computer work, and my symptoms are back . Just looking for some advice.

Avatar f tn Has anyone had a similar injury? I am 43 and had no previous back, neck pain or migraines!!! I have been told I have stenosis too. Conservative treatment has been recommended. My spinal cord did is slightly narrowed at C5-C6 but no nerve involvement. Any advice on how to cope with/cure pain?
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a neck problem too. I have neck pain just by sitting and tingling and numbness in my right arm. Anyways, I found this book on how to treat your back and neck by Robin McKenzie. It gives you exercises you can do. I started doing them my condition improved a lot. I still have problems but getting better. You should give it a try.
Avatar f tn The surgery was a success, my arm pain and numbness was gone, but not the neck pain. I saw him for 6 months of follow up after the surgery and he just told me to be careful because of the bulging disc underneath. I was in pain, but he said that I could go back to my normal activities and the fusion was healing nicely. Fast forward to Dec 05, the disc at C5-6 herniated and I had another surgery. Same scenario, follow up, but still in excruciating pain.
1960024 tn?1355014582 I have had pretty severe Pain in the back of my neck that radiates into the back of my head for about 5 months now. I've seen my Dr. and at first he said a pulled muscle then when it did not go away he tried PT, still no relief so he tried these shots that numbed the area for a couple hours, but that was it. There's also lumps now, at my hairline and in the mid neck close to the spine, I decided to see another Dr.
Avatar f tn My 8 year old son had decompression surgery in Jan 08 and for the last 2 months has been suffering from pain in his upper back, neck and shoulders. A physical therapist says he has large knots in his muscles. the therapy helps a little but his pain is constant. Has anyone else had this experience after surgery? Also he has short statue but his thyroid tests have come back normal.??? Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn precipitation of head pain by neck movement or awkward neck positions, head pain when external pressure is applied to the neck or occipital region, restricted range of motion of the neck, and neck, shoulder and arm pain. Treatment for cervicogenic headache includes physical therapy, medications, behavioral therapy, and other modalities. Occipital neuralgia is caused by irritation or injury to two nerves that run from the upper neck to the back of the head.
Avatar n tn What he has had since then is neck stifness and pain that radiates into the shoulders. We have been told that it is not related to this demylination episode. We had seen several physiotherapists, osteopaths, neuropaths and he has also had ultrasound treatment with no improvement to his symptoms. He constantly stretches his neck to relieve this feeling and this is usually accompanied by a "snapping" sound from the stiff muscle.
Avatar f tn Hello, The first possibility is of a spinal cause like cervical stenosis or degeneration which is causing nerve irritation. Nerve irritation may present with pain in the neck and when movement of the neck is there from side to side if cervical spine is involved and tingling and numbness in the upper extremities. Any spinal cause in the lower spine may be associated with tingling in the soles of feet and legs.
