Neck pain

Hi, I'm 21 and have Neurofibromatosis (NF1).
in 2009 I had back surgery to remove 4 tumors form the nerves in my spine. Now I have chronic pain all throughout my back. Also, have been diagnosed with a straight neck and have constant tight muscles in my neck. Doctors have talked about chiropractic care...but that didn't work, muscles relaxers don't work either...would the next step be surgery??


  • I have a straight neck as well and none of my doctors including the neurosurgeon who did my spinal fusion ever said anything about it. I had a chiro a few months ago who said I could get the curve back but it would take years and he never showed me the exercises to do it, just kept making me come in and took my money saying he'd show me the exercises the next time. I gave up. I think it's why my disc herniated so easily when I was rear-ended.
