Q & A

I’ve been having neck pains for a couple weeks now.  My husband thinks it’s a pinched nerve.  The pains have been in different areas of my neck and not constant, only when I twist my neck a certain way.  If it is a pinched nerve, will it go away on it’s own?  I’ve never had one before.

    • My hubz had to see the chiropractor to help his. We also bought an inversion table that he goes on daily for about 2-3 minutes. The hanging upside down loosens his everything.

    • Get yourself to a chiropractor and get your neck straightened out!  No, the pain is not likely to go away on its own, and if you don’t get your neck adjusted, it will probably only get worse as muscles begin to knot up more and more against the pain which puts pressure on others nerves......

    • Nerves get pinched when there is an injury around the area that is inflamed. Take an anti inflamatory like Aleve, Ibuprofen or Motrin. Rest and stopping activities that aggravate the affected area are also recommended.

    • If I can add my suggestion, stay away from a chiropractor, only some people benefit from that, and in my experience along with many others I have spoken with, that type of manipulation can cause further pain.  The anti-inflammatory medicine is helpful, rest is very crucial..don’t exert that area.  If it continues, see your regular doctor who may want an x-ray or some other test done to truly know what it is.

      Just some helpful advice.happy
