Despite having intense physiotherapy since March 2011 I am still experiencing severe neck pain which does not seem to want to go away! Has anyone had this problem and resolved it? If yes I would love to hear from you. I feel that I may have to suffer spinal pain now for the rest of my days! The physiotherapist feels that wearing a soft collar for so long has seriously weakened the neck muscles. I have also been told to stand more erect which is most difficult when you have constant pain. They have tried numerous painkillers on me but most have little or no effect.
Previous ops: Rt knee replacement 1998 followed by early revision 2000 as first operation was failure! Lt knee replacement 2006. PLIF plus rebuild of bottom of spine 2008. ACDF C4/5/6 2010.
