In brief: Osteopathic Exam

For pain from neck/shoulder 'spasm,' most available treatments are symptomatic.
If you've had many tests-lumbar puncture, MRI, etc. which haven't found the 'cause' but have ruled out serious disease, a good history & osteopathic hands-on exam can often find the cause: usually rib or spine malfunction. Manipulation can often fix it.Rarely, neuropathic pain is cause.Neuroprolotherapy may help.
