I am suffering from neck pain. The pain is in spine bone. I was walking alone and was moving independently before pain started. Now, I can’t walk alone. I need some assistance, to make me walk. My head tilts, when I see open space when I am alone. I am a case of celebral palsy (Borderline athetoid)… I feel that I should be operated. Is surgery is needed to correct my problem?
