Exercise is better.: It is far better to exercise and strengthen the muscles in your shoulder and back to correct posture.

C5-6 Disc bulge. Should I do flexion or extension with Over Door Cervical Traction device? Face door-flexion. Face away- Extension.
Fell backwards upside down on back of head. Heard noise in neck upon impact. Lot of neck pain, but can move neck and do activities. Rest or go to doc?
Go to doc asap: The neck is one of those areas in which you could cause significant damage to the spinal cord if a fracture goes untreated. I am assuming all of the weight of your body fell in top of your neck which is not a good thing. You need plain films and additional flexion and extension views to rule out a listhesis/slippage. CT and/or MRI might need to be considered if there is suspicion for fracture. ...Read more

After neck adjustment at chiro, feel heavy sensation on top of head, jaw ache, a bit dizzy. How long will these effects of spine manipulation last?
I am VERY leery: of any kind of neck adjustment in a person such as yourself who has known neck arthritis, and is of an age where there may be vascular disease. These issues can intersect especially in the neck, and if you are having any symptoms at all after neck manipulation I think you should be seen by a medical doctor. ...Read more
Leftside neck pain & where neck meets skull after masseuse massage a day ago. Mostly when tilting-moving neck. Normal? neck did ache B4 the massage.
Well,...: I can not tell you whether it is normal of not, but "it is what it is." Since you had the pains before the massage, it probably means the massage was unfortunately just not therapeutic. Neck sprains and muscle tension in the posterior cervical area can be hard to treat, and may take time. See the Doctor if you do not get well soon. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
