Everyday. Neck pain, tightness. And it goes to my upper back and shoulders.
Took some medications; no help.
My doctor also gave me stronger medications; still no help.
What do I do next?
Start these and see if they help?
The times to hold the stretch will very from 30 seconds to a minute. You want to HOLD the stretch to improve your ligament (not muscle) flexibility will help your joint motion to even help the nerves. This can be the root problem causing the muscle tightness.
Still not working? See a chiropractor. Get an exam and X-rays (if necessary) to see if your spine can be the cause of your pain.
