Can a massage therapist fix a pinched nerve?
I'm not 100% sure but I think I have a pinched nerve in my neck.
I have pain & limited range of motion when turning my head to the left, and pain when tilting my head to the left side.
This did not result from an injury or me doing anything in particular...I woke up one morning and my neck was aching and it's been that way since, and it's driving me nuts. I had been sleeping on two pillows, sleeping on just one has made it better but not made it go away. Physical activity makes it loosen up a bit and feel a little better, but only temporarily.
My girlfriend has told me I should see a massage therapist about it, and I see that they say they can fix neck pain and such, so is that a good option?
Also, I asked about this before, and somebody just told me to go ask on the "spinal disorders" forum, but this isn't a disorder so I don't think it belongs there.
