Problem after neck fusion

Patient : I had neck fusion surgery over five years ago. Recently I turned my head at an angle and heard a very loud pop. Now I have severe pain in my neck and progressing down my back. What could be the problem?
Symptoms:  Severe neck pain progressing down my back, headaches, and I can't move my head from side to side.
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for your query I have gone through your query and understand your concern. It can be some muscle pull o r stretching of the ligament. It will be resolved by rest to neck and analgesic such as ibuprofen can be taken to reduce pain . Vitamin B and C help in resolving it. Hope your query get answered. Wishing you a good health. Take care.
