Hello everyone. Long time reader, new poster. I just want to post some of my past struggles and my (fingers crossed) latest recovery. Back in January, I woke up one day with severe pain and tightness in my neck. I just thought it was the usual "slept wrong" thing, I was wrong. The pain and subsequent muscle spasms started almost instantly that day. It felt as if my neck and shoulder blades had a knife jammed in them.The pain was unbearable and constant. The numbness started in my fingers and spasms of my left tricept were progressively getting worse by the day. I finally had enough. I'll fast forward a couple of weeks (through some neck manipulations and massages) to the day I started my recovery. At this point in March, I was losing alot of muscle and I thought surgery was inevitable. That's when, out of desperation, I went to a different specialist. This doctor specializes in muscle balancing and spine centering. He basically put my spine back in alinement and my muscles began to relax and balance almost instantly. I still am not completely normal yet, but to go from total despair to being able to workout again (couldn't even do a single pushup) is unbelievable and life-changing. I know how some of you feel and I wish you all the best of luck. If any of you would like to email me on more info, I'd be more than happy to discuss where I went and what the doc did. Thanks for the read. neumz16@yahoo.com
