Would muscle spasms  in shoulder and upper back and shoulder cause stinging pain in neck when i try to stretch , sleep. Dr. : stress and back spasm?

Possibly: Yes it could, but so could other more serious issues like a pinched nerve in the neck. Even if it is a muscle spasm, the more important question is what is the cause for e spasms. Are you over working them or is it compensatory response to a more serious injury in the neck. Bottom line- go get checked out. ...Read more

From a chiropractor, is it bad to crack your back while still going to a chiro and getting adjusted? Suffer from upper back, shoulder, neck pain.

Too much: Self manipulation on top of chiro manipulation can cause unwanted laxity in the joints of your spine. If you have not had a course of formal physical therapy, i would recommend that as your next step. You need to address the muscular component of your pain as well. I would recommend pt outside of where you are getting your chiro care. It is good to get a different approach. Talk to your pcp. ...Read more

Can chiropractic take away upper back shoulder and neck pain from 4 bulg cervical disc c3-c7 and cervical kyphosis also? Is this even causing my pain?

Can chiropractic take away upper back shoulder and neck pain from 4 bulg cervical disc c3-c7 and cervical kyphosis also? Is this even causing my pain?

Worth a shot: The first question is where are you getting all of this information? Have you had an mri? It would be very uncommon to have a cervical kyphosis. Chiro treatments can be very effective, but just be weary of the hard sell. I would not recommend more than 6 treatments if you are not seeing any benefits. Bulging discs do not necessarily cause pain. You are young and should get better! see pcp. ...Read more
