X( Hello
I woke up about 3-4 weeks ago with neck discomfort thought i maybe slept wrong pillows no good bought 2 new pillows still discomfort. than about 1.1/2 weeks ago i started getting left shoulder pain and pain in forearm below the elbow went for a back massage found some knots but really didnt help. then this week went to chiropractor who took neck xrays found the curve in neck starts out correct but then it goes backwoods. Said he was surprised i was not in an accident or have not felt this sooner. That i also have degenerative cervical disease. He did stimulus worked it a bit and said come back 3 times a week. I cannot be adjusted due to I have a clotting factor and he said that can cause a clot. Can this chriopractor really help me or is this a waste of my time.I am tired of this pain. The pain is mostly in the neck & arm now. He found a huge trigger point in back but i cannot take this anymore. It is disrupting my life. I am 46 and can't deal with this pain.
thanks for any help and advice.


  • I'm a little confused. If you can't be adjusted, why are you seeing a chiropractor? I think a neurologist or orthopedist specialising in neck pain might be a better choice. I think your money would be better spent with a neurologist, especially since you are experiencing shoulder and arm pain. Good luck getting this taken care of.
  • Welcome to Spine Health. Sorry that you are experiencing so much discomfort. I understand how bad it can feel and I really hope that you can get some relief soon.

    I guess to clear up some of the confusion, can you give a brief history of the docs you've seen to be treated for this? That way we don't sit here and recommend to you that you should have been seen by a doc that you've already been seen by a dozen times.

    Everyone here means well and is willing to lend a shoulder when needed.
