I read that radiation side effects can appear 3 to even 6 month after your last treatment. So, this is reasonable to suspect this is due to radiation. Decreased range of motion in the treated area is a possible side effect. I'm going to see a radiologist oncologist on Monday - I'll ask for your and see what he says might be a solution.
Do you have hyperbaric oxygen in your area. I read that is helpful but something that I use that isn't near as expensive is Frequency Specific Microcurrent. Look it up on the web and it will give you an idea. I was in a car accident and using this my neck was better than before the accident. Here's an article on FSM helping
An Osteopathic Dr. sometimes utilizes this. I found one for my mother in Wisconsin and he was a D.O.
I read one report that noted the problem and improvement with therapy. I'm not allowed to post a link so you can look this up.
reports that at the end of the course of microcurrent therapy, 92% of the 26 patients exhibited improved cervical rotation, 85% had improved cervical extension/flexion, and 81% had improved cervical lateral flexion.
It is used by OT's for helping muscles relax - aid healing, its really amazing. I actually bought a unit for my husband who has a rare condition. I'm seeing my OT tomorrow and I'll ask him if this would be helpful for you. What area do you live in...I'll see if there is a practitioner there. My heart goes out to you. You might research Hyberbaric Oxygen if you have a place near you. I spoke with the doctor over the one in our area.
