I recently received a report from an x-ray I had done--the report was from a chiropractor who specializes in radiology. In the report, he said that he could not rule out rotational subluxation at C5 and that I have rotational malposition from C2 through C5. I brought the report to my spine orthopedist who immediately poo pood the report because the guy who did it was a chiropractic radiologist. He said, "You do NOT have a subluxation. If you did it would be a medical emergency." He also said that there is a big difference between medical and chiropractic terminology. So, first of all, who do I believe? Second, if it is a chiropractic term and not medical, how serious is it? My symptoms are as follows: Headaches in the back and top of the head, bad neck pain, bad left trapezius pain and spasm, left shoulder, tricep and forearm pain (dull), and the right tricep burns. I have burning in my right leg as well but I don't have low back problems. I did have cervical surgery a year ago. My pain is horrible now, though it was much better for a time after surgery. I am completely miserable, I am having a hard time concentrating...other than that I am fine lol.
SOS! All advice accepted!
