Y does my upper neck/ lower head always hurt like a little sprain and always has a teary cracking sound wen i turn my head right around??? :(

Snap, Crackle,Pop!: You might have a touch of arthritis in your neck that leads to that crunchy sound ('crepitations') in your neck when you twist it. That in turn could lead to some reactive muscle tightness. In some people it gets so bad it leads to a headache. Usually some x-rays help see if there's arthritis in there. The treatment involves medication, massage, range of motion exercises, proper posture and rest. ...Read more

Hi. I have been have neck pains, and pains mostly from the shoulders up, but also in the lower back. Could it be an infection or just a sprain?

Neither likely: Almost certainly not infection. Sprain is injury to ligaments..Also unlikely. More likely is strain of back and or shoulder and neck. Check if you are doing inappropriate exercises or overly stressful activities at work. If there is no neurological involvement (numbness, shooting pains, weakness, electric like shocks) this is likely muscular. If not improving with rest, NSAID see your pcp. ...Read more

Can an MRI detect lumbar sprain in the lower back area?

Can an MRI detect lumbar sprain in the lower back area?

Unlikely: Most MRI units do not have the power and/or not set up sensitivity wise to detect most soft tissue injuries unless severe. There really is no indication to diagnose this condition by MRI as it can be made clinically and treated with good success.
