Goodby: The best strategy is to seek out an orthopedic surgeon or sports medicine specialist. Chiropractors offer short term massage relief only and have no cures with their therapy. Absolutely do not let a chiropractor touch your neck and be advised that the x-rays that they always take (to make money) use unmonitored, high intensity machines with some risk to you.
