    I had an incident yesterday at work where something fell on my head...nothing big and I did have a hard hat on. It didn't hurt, but it compressed my neck downwards and now my neck is in a world of pain.

    Would it be a pinched nerve? Muscles? Something in the spine?

    so i went to Physio, they did a heat wrap, acupuncture, ultrasound and some exercises. ended up worse off then before. went to the chiro. he 'adjusted' two ribs and my neck. and stripped some muscles in my neck and back.

    apparently I am the tightest wound person to come in. the reason I hurt my neck/back was a combination of not-the-best posture, very tense muscles and damage from an accident years ago.


    all in all, feeling better today but have to go back to learn how to avoid having this happen again. :hs:

    Yeah, sounds like some massage therapy in your neck and back would be good for you too.

    Less non-MD "doctors", more CT's and xrays.

    I trust my physical therapist, although if I fuck something serious up I'll usually go to my Orthopedic specialist first, who will then refer me to the physical therapist.

    Then again the guy I go to is badass, your mileage may vary.

    Your Physio a quack. Never heat an acute injury. He did heat and ultrasound. Double fucking heat. Redundant. Good way to make inflammation flare up. No wonder you felt worse. Guys like that give Physical Therapist a bad name.:nono:

    I actually mentioned that to him, when he mentioned inflammation I said wouldn't cooling it be the better option. He gave me the :squint:

    I have some lined up now, never figured I should go since I am not usually stressed/injured/working a strenuous job.
