Clicking/pain in the neck

(8 discussions)

These problems began after I went to see a physio 18 months ago. My neck clicks and crunches whenever I turn my head from right to left, but I generally get clicks and grinding sounds whenever I move my head, all of which are quite uncomfortable. In addition, my neck is much less flexible since I developed the symptoms, I have a stiffness at the top of the back and general soreness. The symptoms have got progressively worse over the 18 months since I first noticed them.I’ve had an MRI scan of the neck but it revealed nothing and a rheumatologist I saw also drew a blankAny pointers or advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated.Yours hopefully,Will Mann.

    We’re you able to get any answers. My neck clicks every time I move it. In addition I have pain in my shoulders and shoulder joints. The glands on my neck are also very painful and when touched I can fee the pain a bit in my chest. I feel like my upper spine into my neck is protruding and painful. In the mornings, it feels like my muscles are all twisted in my neck and shoulders.
    Andy idea?

    ME too! THis is so annoying and scary. But then again, I click everywhere in the past few months. and it is worsening. my hips click, my shoulds and scapula click, my wrists and arms as well. pelase let me know if you find something. I also have that shoulder/neck/back pain, thouigh I am now told I have fibromyalgia. pursuing treatment options. and this is dfferent from cracking, I hate when people say, “wellc racking is normal, it is your body realligning itself.” I do NOT think that is all it is.

      I too am having problems with clicking and pains in my neck… It started just out of the blue in June and after 2 months and no improvement I saw my GP who enrolled me for physio treatment as he suspected it was muscular… The Physiotherapist feels that I’ve cricked my neck without realising it and after almost 4 months of treatment it is NO BETTER… The clicking & pain has travelled from the centre of the left hand side of my neck, and now affects me at the bottom of my neck… I have also found that I get a shooting pain up into my head sometimes and wonder if anyone else with the clicking neck problem also experiences this…

    Found this:

    The popping clicking in you neck is a sign that the bones are not fitting together as they should. The little piece of slick bone on one vertebrae (a neck bone) is not sitting down on the little slick piece of bone on the next vertebrae.

    There is a home exercise you can do that will correct it. And it is this.

    Standing or laying on your back, keep your face straight forward. Do not tilt the chin down or up. If you are lying on your back, move the face toward the ceiling is such a way that if it touched the ceiling, your face would be flat on the ceiling. If you are standing, move it straight forward in such a way that your forehead and chin would touch the wall in front of you at the same time. It has to go straight forward.

    Holding that position, move your chin in a figure eight pattern. Imagine the wall is a piece of paper. You have a pencil sticking straight out from your chin. Use the tip of the pencil to write a “8” laying on its side. {}-{}.

    When done correctly, the neck will then make a crunching noise at the base of the skull. This is good. It will help your neck. It might not take the popping clicking sound out right away, but it will ensure that no damage is done and in fact will correct the problem if one persists in using it.

    Yes, a manual adjustment can be made to push the bones back together. It is called a chiropractic adjustment. The procedure for home use and the cervical stairstep are forms of a chiropractic adjustment, but there are more direct methods done by hand. Ask a chiropractor
