If you're dubious about chiropracters, try your physical therapist. I

She also gave me a book called "Treat your Own Neck", which is
published in New Zealand but available most places -- if you're
interested, I can get the details of who to contact in the USA and
Canada. This tells you how to avoid getting neck problems in the first
