Ibuprofen can also thin the blood as well as Naproxen (Aleve) thus the reason why when going into surgery or minor procedure a surgeon will ask that you not take only Tylenol, no Ibuprofen, Naproxen, or Aspirin for a period of time depending on the procedure. The problem is really more trouble for bruising if you take these NSAIDs regularly. In my experience, for a little pain here and there ibuprofen for pain relief outweighs the amount of blood thinning it causes. Believe me I've had the pole dancing neck pain! If you are having continuous enough pain from pole dancing that you need regular NSAIDs you really should see a doctor. Chiropractors have often been a temporary fix for me, but I really recommend a DO (not an MD but still board certified in the US) particularly one that specializes in Neuromuscular medicine (NMM/OMM). They're doctors just like MDs and can prescribe medications as needed, but they also have some training in Ostepathic Manual treatment similar to chiropractic but in my experience often a more permanent fix.
