I woke up about a week ago with neck pain. My nurse practitioner prescribed exercises, Aleve and a muscle relaxer at night. When I read through the exercises, I noticed that it said not do these exercises if you have pain radiating down your arm. This is what I have! (and I told her that too!) In addition, I have tingling in my thumb. So, after icing, using heat packs and medication, my pain was not improving. Then I did an online search and came up with this video. It makes perfect sense. After doing this one exercise and being more aware of my posture, I am feeling better already. I can’t wait to watch more of his videos when I get home. Thank you Dr. Mandell.
Ever have a pinched nerve in the neck area?
P.S. This information is not medical advice. Just wanted to share. 🙂
