I am posting this to hopefully get some help for my father. One month ago he woke up with pain in his right neck/shoulder area. He went to his chiropractor to get some relief but it was short lived- lasted a few hours. He let it go for a few days hoping the pain would go away but it only got worse. He was in severe pain and went to the emergency room twice that weekend with no relief. Two weeks ago he went and saw a spine specialist who looked at this MRI and did a full evaluation and could only say it was probably a neck sprain. This past week he went back to the specialist because his pain is so severe and is not going away. They ordered a cat scan (still waiting to for insurance to approve) and told my father they will see him again after they get that. In the mean time my father is in so much pain that pain meds, muscle relaxers, and rest don't help. He has tried reiki massage, muscle stimulator, heat, and ice. Nothing has helped and my family is desperate to find him relief. Please help.
