    I Cannot Turn My Neck To The Left Sometimes

    I am in pain right now from an old neck injury from when I was 13. I went to physical therapy for a while after the accident and now that I am 31, it is awful. I was seeing a chiropractor for about a year and it seems as if I am worse than before. My neck gets so stiff that I...

    I crack my neck and finger joints a few times, I get up and sit on my laptop all day. After a couple of hours I'm tired, and I've worked out it's low-level back pain. It grows over the day. I know various things about it. I've seen a couple of chiropractors and a physio. I've...

    Especially Recently...

    My back and shoulders have been hurting me for as long as I can remember. It used to be because I was VERY big, but now it's just cos I've got some problem with the cartilage in my back. Don't know what. I wasn't paying attention. But then, when I was helping my sister paint her...

    True ...

    Think it is aided by spending long work hours before a computer. Most desks and chairs are not egonomically made for long durations in the same position.

    Every Day...

    my neck and shoulders hurt.....I think a lot of it has to do with how I sit...and it's where all my stress goes. I am always tense. I meditate and relax as much as I can. I'm not sure exactly what to do.

    Mostly My Back

    I work in a bakery, so I do a lot of standing...on a very hard floor. Plus, it doesn't help that most of my shoes are vans slip-ons, chucks, etc. No support whatsoever. I'm pretty sure my posture isn't very good, so with these things combined, my back is always killing me.

    Bulging Disc In My Neck May Be Causing Chronic Migraines.

    My neck injury was originally caused by a major MVA in 1983.  As I've gotten older the problem has become worse.  No doctor will operate since I can still use my arms and hands.  Any surgery has the risk of paralysis. Meanwhile, I have daily headaches/migraines...
