Hello,
I have a question that really needs an answer. I got into a car accident about 2 years ago and injured some muscles at the base of my skull on the right side. I went to a chiropracter because i didnt have insurance and he said my top vertabrae was displaced over pretty far and this was two weeks after the accident so my muscles didnt heal correctly. I was having problems shortly after that and went and had an MRI done on my cervical spine and they said they seen no problems. It a little over two years later and my situation has gotten worse, my neck has shrunk and my back is always tight. I used to be a very active athlete and now I only do activities about a 1/4 of the amont of time I used too. I mainly notice a differnce on the right side of my body, I also have notice sore muscles in my arms and legs on the right side and some tingling sensations on my next and the top/back of my head. Please help

Hello,

Sorry for the sufferings.

I need to know some points regarding your query so that I can answer better.

When MRI was taken?

Have you consulted any specialty doctor?

How frequent the symptoms are?

Thank you

It was taken a like 4 months after the accident. I went to a sports medicine doctor who gave me the MRI but he seemed to not care about my problem. The symptoms are pretty regular. They get worse as the day progresses, i deal with the symptoms pretty much everyday.

Thank you for the information,

I will put my opinion regarding the issue.

As the symptoms are persisting, physical therapy or massage are not helping, you will need repeat evaluation by doctor.

Though MRI was done and did not reveal any abnormality, still at this stage when you are having symptoms on one side with tingling and soreness,repeat investigations will be needed.

I feel that you can consult a spine specialist.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
