Chronic neck and ba: The answer is it really depends on how severe and debilitating it is. If you are functional but have pain - therapy programs are the best. If its restricting your function (and there are grades of restriction) then you may needs medications, injections etc... Always have an evaluation to make sure that any serious issue is either ruled in or out.
