Neck pain vertebrae

Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain vertebrae


Avatar n tn I first took him last summer to see if there was anything that could be done about his posture--he has a pronounced slump, with his head jutting forward. The chiropractor said he had a misaligned neck vertebrae, and used a machine to "tap" it back into place. The change in his posture was instant and remarkable--he stood straight as a rod. But a couple of days later, he was slumping again. And so on...
Avatar m tn in the xray it showed my neck vertebrae as straight rather than curved, and 4 vertebrae in my back that were out of alignment pinching a nerve or something to that effect. i have no pain whatsover in my neck or back. the doc says i should get these things fixed before any problems arise and should in come for treatment twice a week for 3 weeks then look at xrays again.
Avatar n tn However, sacralization of a lumbar vertebrae occurs without any other disease process, Should have pain that wakes at night and never fully goes away, stiffness worse in morning if it is ankyspond, though hip pain not uncommon in females. A sacralized vertebrae means your daughter cannot move at the last level of the spine and so yes, it can become painful as it changes the movement of the spine with walking and really anything else but isn't usually severe.
Avatar f tn I've been experiencing a new pain in the past month or so. Inconsistent pain where my cervical and thoracic vertebrae meet. It feels as if its directly in the vertebrae. If I accidentally let my head crane forward, bend over, move funny, etc, I get an intense aching pain. Not a screaming pain but a "this does not feel right" pain that kind of carries through my core and makes me sick to my stomach.
Avatar n tn I also have pain on the sides of my neck and sometimes in the pivot neck joints. I can tilt my head to the right and turn it where I will hear a cracking sound. It sounds like it is coming in the left pivot neck joint. I have uploaded a picture for reference. Someone please tell me whats causing my chronic pain and that cricking sound in my pivot joint? Also what I may do or who I should see to relieve the pain? Thank you.
Avatar m tn severe pain of the head (so sensitive you can't touch it), pressure in left ear, sleeping/checked out 90% of time, pain down neck and spine, losing ability to walk without assistance. He had an MRI that shows a large lesion on the C2 vertebra. This was done out of state where he was working. Due to his worsening condition, he traveled home with MRI CD and got an appt with a Neurosurgon in New Orleans.
Avatar n tn then carefully remove the wet collar and replace with dry one, with minimal movement. i would also call the doctor and make him aware of his level of pain and inadequate pain regimen. if he is uncomfortable with this, seek out a pain management specialist who wont be uncomfortable prescribing proper dosing for legitimate problems. if he had pain relief, he'd probably be able to find a comfortable position.
Avatar n tn Long story short, I fractured my C1 vertebrae in a car accident back in July. I was in a Miami J for 13 weeks. I did not require surgery and I have been in physical therapy for about 2 weeks now, slowly regaining my flexibility/strength. Everything seems to have healed fine and all the tendons/ligaments held up fine with no severe damage which would require surgery and the vertebrae stayed completely stable during healing.
Avatar m tn As of today, all they have me on is 200 mg a day of tramadol and anti inflammatories. I know the pain you are describing, my mid back and neck always hurts and I have the pain that wraps around my back through my side where I broke the ribs and sometimes its very unbearable. It almost feels like bones are pushing on me from the inside out. It hurts to take deep breathes and I have bones that feel like they pop out of place in my chest, ribs, and back when I move certain ways.
Avatar m tn is there a name for a bone or back disorder that your hip and vertebrae fuse together ?? I first found out when i was 20 and recent xrays showed it.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn Usually people don't get such x-rays unless they have pain or discomfort. If there is no pain, live with just the x-ray. If there is pain, seek to get an MRI.
Avatar n tn Degenerative diseases or deviations of the spinal column can also change vertebrae structure and create acute pain. Neck pains often result from emotional tension or from working in one position for long periods or stiff neck. Nerve endings can be affected from traumatic, infectious or degenerative origins. And finally, it could develop from tension and produce severe soreness without any underlying disease. It would be good to see your doctor for proper evaluation and management.
Avatar f tn Hello, Neck pain can be due to many causes.It can be due to injury, a mechanical or muscular problem, a trapped nerve caused by a bulge in one of the discs between the vertebrae, or from arthritis of the neck. Sometimes it can be due to slipped disc, brittle bones (osteoporosis), deformed natural curvature of the spine (scoliosis) and, very rarely, structural damage due to tumors or infection.
Avatar f tn hi a few years ago when I was working as a bouncer i was bottled from behind and then the guy who attacked me got me in a front headlock(back of my head was on his chest) and he wrenched my neck since then I've had issues with the back of my neck when it goes I get a pressure at the front of my neck just below my Adams Apple like someone is pressing on it which causes a sickly feeling/lump feeling so I be concerned about this or not
Avatar n tn Ever since I was younger, if i turned my head a certain way (always to the side) I would get a really sharp pain that would run up the side of my neck and couse my tongue to tingle and go numb. I always thought this was normal, but the more I talk to people about it...the more I realize that maybe it isn't. lately I have been getting headaches that start in the base of my neck and kinda shoot forward to the front of my head, and usually before I get those kind of headaches I feel a little dizzy.
Avatar m tn In the last 4 months I have been having a crunching feeling followed by pain in left side of neck that dissipates immedialty leaving neck sore. These episodes occur about one to 4 times a week. They occurred more often about 4 months ago but now are more sporadic. Just got back from 4 days golfing and neck was in addition to crunching episodes was also a little stiff before I left for trip. Today while brushing teeth my lower neck got very tight and hurts to look down or move much at all.
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 m tn I'm recently dx, April 2011. I've suffered on and off in the passed with neck pain, it hurts just to hold my head up. Does anyone else suffer from this? Is this even a symptom of ms? I feel like things I ignored in the past may have been symptoms that I didn't realize.
Avatar m tn Back in 1989 I had C5, c6, c7 anterior cervical laminectomy as result of working out with weights doing shoulder presses. Back then I had severe pain when I turned my neck, it would start from neck down my shoulder to arm and hand with pain, tingling, and numbness but with little relief. At this time in 1989 this pain affected my left side only. I saw doctor immediately and started with conservative tx then physical therapy but nothing helped.
Avatar f tn All that did was leave pain where it was put in then taken out. Tripped over my dog yesterday and mid back and neck popped. Now it hurts to move my neck in anyway. What will help the pain? The nurse said I shouldn't be in to much pain but the pain level today is at a 9. Help please Thanks to any that can.
Avatar f tn That was my 8th neck nurgery and am fused from C3 thru T2, now that my neck is totaly fused my pain is pretty much gone after 25 years, so it can still be fixed don't give up. Keep me posted, been there done that.
