Guys, last year one of my cousin really suffered from neck pain. we consult to many doctors but all in vain, then some body suggests us to Singapore Medical Clinic. They were specialists in Arthritis, Knee Pain, Neck Pain, Heel Pain, and Shoulder pain.
Absolutely no way! and it is totally unecessary. If you live in Sydney there are many good Neurosurgeons who could look at your cousins neck problem. You need to tick all the boxes first, GP, investigations, conservative managment, no good then request a referral to specialist. If money an issue then attend a neurosurgical outpatient clinic.
I would like to know you that most exercises for neck pain will make the problem worse. If you are suffering neck pain, you need to be aware of what not to do, as much as what you need to do.
Exercises for neck pain need to relax and balance the muscles effectively. The muscle you will work on is not the important ingredient. When you stretch and how you stretch is most important. Timing is everything, fail to get this right and the muscles will tighten again, neck pain will return.
You have whiplash and should see a doctor a chiropractor is very good under these conditions, although you can't afford a doctor see an attorney they will send you to one, if you have insurance and med pay is on your policy use it and avoid attorney you can settle this matter without one
Muscle strain or tension often causes neck pain. The problem is usually overuse, such as from sitting at a computer for too long. Sometimes you can strain your neck muscles from sleeping in an awkward position or overdoing it during exercise. Falls or accidents, including car accidents, are another common cause of neck pain. A soft tissue injury to the neck, is also called neck sprain or strain.
For those of you who are suffering from neck pain, keeping optimal posture or as close to it as possible is vital to reduce stress on your neck. Generally it is recommended to see a physiotherapist for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. In the mean time, I've included a few links below which you may find useful:
