: I have been suffering from pain in neck (base of skull) and shoulder area for years. I wake up mornings with very bad headaches. I have tried stretching, new bed and new pillows, pain relievers, you name it with no relief. Is there anything else I can try? Thanks, Terry

Terry, so have I. For the past year I have had the same symptoms which included the headache, pain in the shoulders and throbbing at night of the upper spinal column. I had numerous tests including CT Scans of my head, MRI's and MRA's of my head until my doctor ordered an MRI of my cervical column. This test concluded that I have a bulging of vertabra #6 and #7 which causes numbness and pain exactly where I was experiencing the pain. I have not had a followup to determind if anything should be done but for now, I'm glad it's nothing more.

Unique design guides and centers the glenohumeral joint promoting mobility but inhibiting rotation. Aids in preventing the subluxing shoulder.
