Re: Pinched nerve in neck to shoulder

I have the exact same thing and I so feel for you. Trying to sleep at night in certain positions is unbearable! I have never had therapy or shots for it as I have only been to a family physician and a chiropractor. Two things that have seemed to help me a lot though are the chiropractic treatments (you have to also go when it is not flaring up to keep it under control, though not as often as when it is acting up) and believe it or not, working out. At first I was afraid of doing some of the strength training machines, but surprisingly I have found this to be EXTREMELY HELPFUL for my arthritis in all the parts of my body, including my neck. You might want to consider something like that.
