Re: neck pain

Try a heating pad, hot shower, a neck pillow, and definitely have her get checked of OA. Her physician can prescribe something to help with the pain. good luck!

I, too, have suffered from severe neck pain. Physiotherapy with someone who knows what they're doing has helped me tremendously. (He wrote his PhD in the biomechanics of the neck, so I trust he knows his stuff.) He thinks I have osteoarthritis in a joint of my neck (and back). I'm only 46!! Anyway, I've gone from being in pain or uncomfortable 90% of the time, to being pain-free 95% of the time. My neck that is.........not so much success with my back........yet.
