I made the mistake of attending a chiropractic seminar explaining their benefits. To make a long story short my neck always had limited range but no pain or cracking sounds. After 12 adjustments, I have been in constant pain whenever I move my neck(level 4 out of 10) now for 5 months and also when I move my neck from side to side it cracks in many different locations.(not real painful but very annoying). If I lay perfectly still on my back, the pain pretty much goes away.
I had an xray done by my primary doctor and the results came back negative. Now they want to see an MRI. My question is this: is spending $500(that I really can't afford right now)for the MRI worth it? What can it possibly tell me and how can it help in determining treatment? I am going to be really upset if it comes back negative and that money goes down the drain. Maybe I could have spent that $500 on something that can give me some relief. What would you do if you were me? Thank you in advance.
