I have been living with a sholder problem for many years and have had it!
I think the initial injury was due to an overextension at work. I was of course subjected to the usual physical therepy that included massage with Quartizone cream. Well yes it felt better but as soon as the quartizone and therepy was over the condition returned each time it exerted the muscle. The muscle spasms just where the neck meets the sholder then go straight down the back about two inches. In this area it swells and pain sometimes extends to the top of my head causing a severe headache.
My question is: Is there some type of surgery that may correct this or is it possible that surgury would make the condition worse. Also: I have used pain killers etc, but like I said this is all a temporary fix. I want to have this fixed.
