over 25 years ago I broke C2 in two places and spent 5 months in a halo vest. Since then I have acute episodes of severe pain and stiffness. Tired of taking muscle relaxants. Stress or sometimes just sleeping the wrong way will bring it on. Gives me horrible headaches. I was told i most likely have bone spurs. extra bone growth from the fracture healing. I can go from feeling fine to being in so much pain i want to die. What are some alternative treatments for this type of pain?
