Pain in the neck!
Wednesday, May 26, 2010
As many of my Spark friends know I have been having a lot of pain in my shoulder and neck area lately and you have asked me about what is going on. Here is a quick recap of my progress so far:
I did the PT for three weeks, twice a week, along with traction. The traction helped the neck tightness and soreness... my insurance even paid for a home unit to rent for a few months, but, I really don't think that the therapist knew what she was doing, every time I saw her she would try something different on me.
My boss suggested that I go see his Chiropractor than does a 'Active Release Technique" know as ART.. I just went for my first visit this morning and even thought my arm and shoulder are sore from the deep massage and movement that he did I really think the initial pain is better. He said I would be sore today and then probably really see the difference this tomorrow or this weekend. He said that the pain I am feeling is severe but it is the easiest to fix. I have another appointment scheduled, but not until after my vacation which is next week.
Wouldn't this be something if he gets it better after I have seen two specialists, a neurology surgeon and PT person who just couldn't get it?!? All I can say is that I Thank the Lord that the surgeon was not knife happy! Will blog an update as I progress. Thanks for all of your prayers and concern! Spark Friends are the best!!
