    Punched in the neck - PLEASE reply!

    I am 18 now, but at school at around 13, I got punched in the neck.

    Now my neck never clicked before then, or at least I never noticed it.

    Since the punch, it clicked when I turned to the right.

    Over the years though, it has "developed", so now I can crack it by turning my head quickly either way.
    Furthermore, I get this sort of "inverse" crack, where the bottom left of my neck clicks, but feels like it should be clicking the other way.

    1) do you think my neck would have clicked had i not got punched
    2) i have been to doctors and chiros who can't help, any other advice on how to heal it?

    I would ask for another doctor for a second opinion, maybe an orthopedic doctor. Don't mess around when it comes to something like this. I would demand an MRI to rule out anything that may affect you later.

    Just saw another doctor.
    Despite my best efforts trying to persuade him there was something wrong, he seemed to think it was "natural" and "normal", and that a lot of people have clicking necks.

    Did loads of stretches and because I could do them, told me I was fine

    I don't think a clicking neck would be considered normal. If anything, it sounds like your atlas might have gotten misalligned. You should definitely try looking up upper cervical chiro.

    what is upper cervical chiro?

    if its a chiropractor, all my one did was crack my neck for a very expensive price... the relief was only for a few hours aswell, no long term benefits

    It's a specialized branch of chiropractic dealing with the first 2 vertebra the c1 and c2which gets easily misalligned through some type of force or trauma. Their technique is very gentle and they slowly maneuver your atlas back into place.

    There is a NUCCA chiropractor in London called Heidi Grant, she may be able to help you.

    She straightened me out and basically gave me a new body (or gave me back my old body)
