Started with a trap pull, ended up seeing a chiro that adjusted me 4 times in week, saying I had c6 out of position.
Saw a neuro surgeon - (told me I had DDD) but nothing to serious, current issues were more muscular.
Ended up seeing a PT twice a week for "various" issues.
I have been seeing a PT for about a month or more twice a week. I am told that I have muscle spams (regular doc confirmed) as well as other isseus with c6 and c1/2. Again everyone I have seen seems to think its muscular.
I have not really gotten better with all the "treatment" the OT has been doing. I usually go in and get stretched out for about 15mins (neck and back stretched) then I end with doing basic strength. Problem is that I am not really improving and feel like I keep aggravating it. There are days where its my neck, then the middle back then the lower back and it hurts pretty darn good. I start to get better then something sets it all of, it might be I slept wrong or, sat wrong or this or htat bottom line being one step forward two steps back.
I am on diclofenac to help the immflimation and that seems to help settle things.
I am just not sure what do do since anything I try seems to aggravate the problem and am not even sure what exactly it is anymore. I am thinking it might be best just to not do anything andnot see any pt or anything and just leave it be for a month or two.
I am over two months since pulling my trap which has turned into a myriad of issues. YEt I am told this typically takes from a a month to several months to heal. Yet I do not feel like I am improving at the rate I should be.
I am going to get evaluated by a different PT. I am not overly confident with the one I have anymore since I feel like I just keep going in every week with not improvement.
If anybody has any feedback I would appreciate that
1. Pain seems to be all over, sometimes upper neck, side of neck, middle of neck, c6, then middle the lower. It just changes on a day to day basis. No real neurological symptoms.
2.) Neuro Surgeon = I have cervical DDD but aht was not the cause of the current issues. Its all muscular.
3.) Regular doc = chronic back spasms. Diclofenac. I did not take these regurarily but have started a new round taking twice a day consistant for 10days.
4.) PT - Pulled trap and chronic spasms as well as other issues.
Thankyou for taking time to read this.
