arthritis in neck

Hi there
I have arthritis in my neck from a birth injury. It doesn't cause me a lot of pain, but when I exercise my neck tightens up and it is really uncomfortable.
I've seen doctors but they only tell me to take ibuprofen, which I can't take because of another drug interaction. Chiropractic has not proven to be effective either. Acupuncture helped some but the effects only lasted for a day or two and it's too darned expensive.
I'm open to any ideas though. Thanks in advance.

Re: arthritis in neck

Try doing a search for 'arthritis' and 'diet' as these things can be interrelated.

Some supplements may also work depending on what kind of arthritis it is.
