I am new to this site, I am in need of some advice pertaining to neck pain I am having. I have been going to a Chiropracter 3 times a week since jan 8..my xrays show the problem is in the C6 & C7 area of the neck...The neck pain is constant and somewhat pinching pain.. Often times at night my left arm goes numb.. a friend of mine gave me a few muscle relaxers and that only worked for a couple of hours.. I use a ice pack & heat everyday and every evening i sit in my massage recliner which seems to be the only place I can get some relief..
My Dr. thinks my problem relates to posture and has given me stretching exercises which I do 3 times a day..
I am considering getting a second opinion because I am not getting any relief with the process i am going thru now..In fact the pain is worse after treatment..
