Uncertain ? Diagnosi: Need to know the diagnosis. We see this kind of problem in a lot of situations that you need a better diagnosis to clarify your therapy. It depends on examination the range of motion of your neck and even the muscle tone in myofascial tender points. You may well need imaging, x-rays and even injections.
