neck pain c5-c7
I have been told I have small bulging discs from C5-through C7


Symptoms are as follows..


I developed pain and weakness in arm when I did weights approx 5 years ago
Pain did go away when I stopped doing weights
I have seen Chriro, physio and osteo, accupuncture u name it

I have no pins and needles- just general stiffness now in neck
However when I do weights or resistance training  the pain becomes more intense- i.e. like a hot flame on my neck
I have recently been to see sports doctor. He has said I must correct my forward head posture
go swimming do freestyle to strengthen my  neck and reverse degenerative
disease in my spine .
I am 33 years old and want to be physical again .

what would u recommend – I just want to be able to do things again …physical

how would I go about rehabiliatiing myself

should I be swimming ?i am doing pilates also

thx for your help

Hi, best will be to consult neurologist, also please change your lifestyle. Physiotherapy sessions do help a lot, wearing cervical collar for couple of days might help. Pain killers along with hot compressions are generally recommended for this situation. In resistant cases, surgery is the last option. New tecniques like microdiscetomy is quite safe.
