joint misalignment; after the treatment you'll have the benefit of pain
relief, increased range of motion and other neuromusculoskeletal
improvement. Your pain might be a pinched nerve from one of your injured
muscles and it might be temporary. My suggestion is to ice the area then
consult with your chiropractic physician as soon as possible.
Sorry to read about your troubles, hope I can guide you in the right
A few questions for you first:
These "alignments" have been performed by what type of doctor?
Did they take x-rays of all areas they are "aligning"?
Is there anything else that could possibly be contributing here? Like
sleeping on it in a weird position, doing a lot of physical avtivity or
work, just took a long trip, watching tv laying down on a couch, just
painted a room, had a slip or fall, doing a lot of reading with neck
This infornation will help me to understand what is going on much better
Thank you for your input.
I hope I can help,

Not being able to turn your head and having shooting pain isn't usually a normal reaction to an adjustment so I would advise you to call the doctor who performed the adjustment and explain the situation. He should be able to evaluate you again and advise you on what to do from there.
Because I am not familiar with your history and symptoms, it would be hard for me to explain exactly why you are feeling this way after your last adjustment.
And remember to always trust your instincts if you feel something isn't right.
Hope you feel better soon

That should help correct the situation.
