I have had neck pain on the back side of my neck for the last four months. My friend held me very tightly from my shoulders near my neck while I was lying on the sofa. After that incident, my neck started paining. I went to an orthopedic but did not get any relief from the medications. I also underwent a neck X-ray. It showed that my soft tissues were damaged, but no cervical problem. Later, I went to a chiropractor and had more than 7 to 8 visits but did not get any relief. Also, I realized if I am doing physiotherapy treatment a little fast (which means physiotherapy machine movement is fast during treatment like mine is 11 for the neck), I start having a lot of heaviness in my head. Please advise me why my pain is not going. Also, what could be the reason for the heaviness in my head?
As you do not have any issues found in the neck in investigations. It could be more related to pain. I would like to know exactly where the pain is in your neck. Is it in the upper neck or lower part.? Do you have any restrictions on movements? Upper cervical issues can easily be treated with the manual cervical spine and mild soft tissue mobilization. Keep ice over your neck frequently, like once every 2 hours for 15 mins. Mild and gentle stretches help reduce strain in the neck, like bending your neck forward, applying slight overpressure on the head, and pulling it down.
