Is it normal for a pinched nerve in the neck to continue hurting after I've been to the chiro twice? Some days I can't feel a thing and the next I do.
YES: Especially if you have had your neck manipulated or turned. I would advise a medical examination, PT, and over the counter anti-inflammatory medication (Advil (ibuprofen) or Aleve), if not allergic to these products. BioFreeze is an excellent sports cream for muscle pain. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I guess not: I am not quite certain what you refer to natural cure. If it is some sort of manipulation, then I doubt, since all the manipulations can only be as deep as muscles and the problem is deeper in the nerves.
