Here's an injury that most doctors will not find and thus will not treat appropriately. The first picture is two different x-rays of the same person that we took at our clinic with our digital x-ray machine. The bottom picture is an x-ray of the neck in the neutral position, and the top picture is an x-ray of the neck in a flexed position.
MRI machines will not be able to visualize this injury as most MRI settings/parameters are unable to visualize this particular tissue.
The second picture is an illustration of some of the ligaments if the spine. There are many more ligaments of the spine that help give it passive stability. A sprain (tears - mild to severe) to these ligaments will cause deep spinal pain initially. Eventually, much more severe injuries will develop.
This is similar to driving on a flat tire. Eventually, more things break and can cause much more significant issues. This is what happens to spinal ligament injuries, which can be caused by seemingly innocuous injuries, such as: trip and falls, whiplash, fender benders, and so on.
We utilize digital x-ray at our clinic to find such injuries. We find these on a weekly basis with patients that have been to other chiropractors that didn't find relief.
We have patients perform specific exercises and do targeted treatment with a variety of modalities to help them find relief.
There is a reason for neck pain to occur, and without knowing what the true injury is, treatment will not be successful.
