I went to therapy once but three times a week at $40 a trip, I couldn't do. I started doing what they started me on and did it at home. I downloaded some neck e decides and keep doing a few each day. My neck has been much better. I occasionally use Salon Pas gel with lidocaine if It starts acting up.
I spoke to my Doctor today and its spondylosis that Ive been diagnosed with.I apologise profusely if I shouldnt be using the spondylitis site as the Doctor said they are two different things.P lease accept my sincere apologies.
CBD lotion on neck and shoulders also helps.
Mary,I went to a physiotherapist whose skill when she pressed parts of my neck unlocked the stiffness.That was £60 first session,and £40 thereafter. Worth every penny ,I know ,but would be great if there was a National Health class somewhere.I find it difficult to massage my own neck.However the base of my skull when I massage it brings comfort and relief.
