Constant neck and shoulder pain

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hey guys. So 2 years ago I was involved in a car accident where an uninsured driver hit into us. Since then I've had nothing but issues. Everytime I go to the doctors they give me medication which I don't feel work. They sent me to get an ultrasound and mri on my neck and shoulders. They showed nothing. I've had xrays which again didn't pick anything up. I'm now using deep freeze to get me through the day. Can anyone suggest what I can do to help? Thanks!

    Hey Louise, sorry about that rough start and the not-so-fast solutions you've tried so far... I would slightly suggest heading to Amazon and finding the book "Treat your own neck" as it's been a lifesaver to tons of patients with similar problems and those that have your symptoms but also your lack of obvious points on imaging...
