Hi I fractured the C5 in my neck about 10 months ago. But now my C1 or C2 keep popping out every day. I have ear trouble and sometime have really bad headache and get really sick. Is there any way i can improve this so they stop popping out. It is very uncomfortable.
You have to explain what “popping out” means. Is this a term used by your chiropractor? What are your symptoms? How did you fracture your neck and did you have these symptoms prior to your accident?
