Can neck pain be due to cervical spondylosis?
Q: I am suffering from neck (4-5 inches below the neck) and right shoulder pain from the last one month. I underwent MWD therapy but did not recover. Today my doctor advised me a neck traction with MWD. Is this a case of cervical spondylosis? Does neck traction have any adverse effect on the spinal cord? What are the preventive steps I have to take to keep this problem away?
A:This can be a muscular pain. Posture plays an important role in getting neck pains. An x-ray of cervical spine should be done to rule out cervical spondylosis. You should take 10 sittings of Short Wave Diathermy and CT followed by exercises under the guidance of a physiotherapist.
