Danger Of Ringing The Neck?
I want to ask, I often ring my neck for quite a long time, every time I ring my neck, the right nape of the neck is like pain and often occurs headaches / migrants. Is the cause so painful and if I want to go to the doctor, the doctor what specialists can handle my problem
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Pain that arises in the neck after it sounds, can occur due to several possibilities. Usually people ring the neck by moving it to a certain side quickly and this can cause muscles to be stretched and tense, injury to nerves, and friction in the cervical vertebrae which results in pain.
This condition actually can often improve by itself, of course, followed by leaving the habit of ringing the neck or other parts of the body because there are no medical benefits that can be taken from doing so. It's easy, just the same as you feel pain when punching a wall, even though the pain is gone and you have seen a doctor, the next time you punch the wall again, the pain will come again and you can get injured again.
But if the pain and headache that you feel is persistent or very disturbing, you should immediately consult a doctor. For the initial suggestion we should first go to a general practitioner. Because migraine or severe headaches are handled by a neurologist, while disorders of the bones are handled by a bone doctor. By going to a general practitioner first, it can be detected which direction your condition is and if you really need to be referred, then your general practitioner will refer you to the appropriate specialist.
Meanwhile, avoid these habits, compress the painful part with a warm compress or put on a patch, consumption of painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs that are sold freely by reading the rules of use listed, and adequate rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
