Re: treatment options?????
the reversal itself is very very common in many people and in most,they do not even suffer with any sort of symptoms at all.it is probably something underlying that is actually causing the irritation thats causing the pain and spasms.you are more susceptable to having disc problems due to the loss and should probably have an MRI done to see whats going on at the inner column level.
the type of work you do will place alot of tension and stress on the upper shoulder and the neck muscles.you should be getting the type of therepy you are actually giving.
having the lordosis reversed can make your discs a bit more at risk for possible slippage among other things,even a slight slippage can impinge some of or even one of the nerve roots in the c spine which believe me,can be very very painful.this is why you really do need to get a good look at the nerve roots and this is best done with an MRI.at the very least,it would rule in or out any possible problems in your c spine.if the MRI doesn't actually show anything real significant,then what you are actually experiencing could just be pure muscle inflammation from repeated motion.try using an anti inflammitory type med such as aleeve?this worked really well for my neck crap before i had to have my fusion surgery done on my c spine for a herniated disc,and you only have to take two twice a day.
at the very least,schedule an appt with your primary doc for an eval and ask about what he/she thinks about getting that MRI.good luck and let me know how things go,**
