: I have been diagnosed with cervical spondylosis and for the last year have been miserable with pain and stiffness in my neck. I have tried all the usual NSAID's, but without any significant results. Recently, I also tried the new "Celebrex"......again with no relief. I hope I'm not destined to never turn my head again without pain. It's really hard to get through a day without aggravating this condition by normal activities. I am very much interested in information and/or support from anyone with similar symptoms who may have gotten relief from any source that I may have overlooked. E-mail or post a message.....thanks!!!
I have Psoriatic Spondylosis and suffer from a lot of neck problems. I have just finished a 2 week session of physiotherapy and they used a lot of acupuncture. Twice during this time I had a professional massage done.They also gave me exercise to try at home. The results were good.
I know that in a short time the pain and stiffness will be back. It is much better while it lasts. I also use a water pillow and find it a big help.
