Why put up with pain?--life's too short,chiropractic massage will not cost a fortune--perhaps 40e first time and less after,first time as histort etc takes time.

Pain will drag you down-as I am sure you already know!!

IF another generaliste will accept you!!! this was the reason behind signing up with the same docteur to keep notes of any previous & present history of illnesses.

My previous Docteur moved some 25 kms away into another dept. & I was told "if you are taken ill in the nite or weekends & another docteur visits, you will not be fully reimbursed",  so I had to find another Docteur nearer to my adresse but the questions that were asked were enough to test anyone's French altho I am very happy now that I changed.

Thanks for that nelly15. So I guess if I want to see a 'neck' specialist I will need an ordonnance from my GP. If that's the case I think I'll just have to put up with the pain as I've been seeing GPs both sides of the channel for at least 10 years and it has got me nowhere.

You can go an see someone else like an osteopath or chiropractor without seeing your doctor. You will get nothing back from cpam but your mutuelle might if you have a clause for alternative therapies. Physio and Acupuncture are reinbersable with an ordanance.

Renard35 is right if not happy with GP go and see another one.

I would suggest a Chiropactic MASSAGE--NO jerking gentle massage and manipulation of spinal area,used by many American football teams-these guys cost huge amounts of money --so need to be back in play asap.

But I guess might not-- be payable thro insurance--might need up to 5 treatments--but will see /feel benefit straightaway!!

You do know you need not have to see the same doctor here you are registered with.Its easy enough to change doctors. Yes you will need a referral and poss have Kiné (Physio) 

If your not happy with your docs decision you have the right to change its as simple as that.
