After playing volleyball I feel pain at the bottom part of the neck on the back side where the spine starts. Pressing the spine bone is painful. Help.?
Overuse injury: Their are several muscles that attach to that area that are involved in extending the head and reaching back at the same time. The action of hitting a spike uses muscles attached to this area. Repetitive use that injures this area can result in a type of injury similar to "tennis elbow" or "shin splints". Ice and rest is very important to prevent significant injury. See doc if not improved! Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Neck pain & stiff:
Hello. Facet joints are responsible for allowing you to comfortably turn your head from side to side and extend it. You may benefit from a short course of oral steroids (7 days) or Toradol (5 days if your PCP approves) to reduce pain and stiffness in your neck.
Have you undergone any PT or chiropractic treatment? These may also be beneficial to get the function of your neck back under control. Read more

I've have done self manipulation of my neck for 15 years now. Now my bones in my neck make a crunching grinding noise with movement &i'm always dizzy?
Advise against: Though many chiropractors do cervical manipulation it isn't necessarily advised by others in the medical profession. Significant risks are present with respect to damaging arteries running in the back of the relatively exposed neck area which feed the brainstem and this can be fatal in some cases. I wouldn't recommend continuing this practice. The american academy of neurology advises against it. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
