Hi Kelly

I’d suspect that the tight muscles were a product of your pain and not a cause. Getting rid of the tightness won’t change the cause and so the pain may well feel temporarily better, it’ll return. Most people who have a pain at the base of their neck is because it moves too much (and doesn’t need to be be manipulated) because something else (your thoracic spine and posture) doesn’t move enough.

How session? Depends on the Chiro – it could range from 1 to 100000000!
