Good morning,went to the chiropractor to get my neck adjusted or cracked. It help some.So here I am icing and hot pad to get more relief. I have been searching all over the net to get some idea what people do to get some relief from this.My next step will be go back in the pool with the other people in doing excersize for this.It has been a while. I am ice packing,hot packing,etc. I noticed driving this morning.Does not help too much with the turning of my head.I have to be careful on this. Beside my day,how is yours going.?

What did the chiropractor say about this? I'm no doctor, but I'd see an orthopedic surgeon if it doesn't improve. Feel better soon and be careful.

@amadeo I caught a nerve in my spine at exercise class years ago. Our friend was a chiropractor and made me all better after 6 weeks of treatment. You know you are in good hands. Old age creeps up on the best of us. lol

It is fine so far Fredo. Good to hear the chiro helped even just a little. Isn't it a pain in the neck to feel like that?

My husband went to see a physiotherapist when he had a neck problem. After many sessions the neck improved a lot. He was almost no more able to turn the head.

How did you originally hurt your neck? Sometimes chiropractic care can actually make things worse.

I'm sorry that your neck is so painful. I hope that the swimming relaxes you and maybe helps with the neck. I had an awful day, but we won't go there......it won't do any good, I'm just glad that its almost over now!

Not sure if switching from heat to cold is good, I think you need to stick with one - but ask the doc about.

Gee, I hope you can find relief. My sis has been having jthese spinal problems and not getting much relief. I am not sure what she is gonna do...because she is having to take OTC pain relievers.

@amadeo She has, and has had an MRI as well. She said the chiropractor didn't help, and she is doing PT. However, she might have to have surgery. They do have laser pain removal though and decompression belts. Surgery is a last resort because sometimes even that doesn't work from what I hear.

Hate that for you - I hope you find some relief soon. They do sell neck wraps and some folks have great luck with acupuncture. I hope you find something that works for you soon.

There are some neck bending exercises.They should be done taking a deep breath in and out. One will get benefit instantaneously sometimes.
