Thinking this is coming sooner than later,,in next few months when weather gets colder.

Surgical repair of my crunchy neck.

Knew a guy once 20 years ago that had something similar done by going thru the

front of the neck to get to back where repairs were done.

MY question is what kind of doctor,,,what are these guys called that do this????

Neurosurgeons, I believe.

Are you able to work?

Or orthopedist that specilizes in back surgery. My brother just had back surgery and it went well

I have two whiplash injuries and my neck vertebrae are a mess...i forget all the words to describe them

And i have had the crunchiness all thru lymeand lately neck spasms and tightness are worse

I cant turn my head when merging...i have to turn my whole body to see to side...or use mirrors but theres always blind spot

It wasnt on my radar to have surgery.

Don, research this well. The crunchiness is a problem but some outcomes of back surgery are not good

Take care. Good luck.

and yes, they do through the neck .. Sounds horrible to me, but I have a friend who had it done not long ago and he did well.

One problem .. once they fix one or two vertabra, then the ones above or below that will go bad in a few years. Just a warning.

Take lots and lots of magnesium!
