If you're dubious about chiropracters, try your physical therapist. I
had a bout of this recently, and after months of intermittent pain and
a week of constant pain, my physio cleared it up in three sessions --
and after one session and one day following the prescribed exercises,
I was off pain-killers.

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
place -- and neck problems often lead to headaches and problems all
down the arm and upper back.

[The therapist was pretty negative about computers. Since the advent
of computers on every desk and in every home, her work has
dramatically increased!]
