So I messed up my back about 9 months ago from picking up a table and/or stretching too far. I received physical therapy and saw a chiropractor for a few sessions and was much much better. Basically they said my back was a little out of alignment so I just needed re-adjusted from the chiropractor and do some exercises to make sure my back return to it's bad state. (previously it just felt 'off' and i would get pain anytime i did physical activity')
This was great for a few weeks and I stopped doing my exercises because i thought I was all better. Then all of a sudden I started having neck problems.
Now, I'm not sure if this is related to my back so I was wondering what you guys think. I was laying in my bed sort of awkwardly and I felt a strain on my neck. The next day, I had a neck strain. It lasted about a week. This was about 3 months ago. But ever since then, my neck has been bothering me on and off being in a mild strain (mild pain, loss of flexibility). For about a month the pain has pretty much gone away, but the loss of flexibility is still there and does not seem to be improving. It sort of gets more tight when I stretch so I'm not sure if stretching my neck is good or if I should be as still as possible to heal. I also feel a slight clicking noise in the back of my neck when I turn my head that wasnt there before.
The part the really worries me is my last chiropractor session, when he adjusted my neck, it felt a little different. And ever since then when I bend my neck to the left, I feel a little pop that wasnt there before. I probably should have told him this right away but I was too happy my back was fixed. However, I didnt have the loss of flexibility right after the chiropractor session, it was at least a month later.
Any advice would be super appreciated!!! Thanks
