Hello to all!

I'm a 40 year old male with numerous neck issues. Im above all else a family man with a great wife and two boys. I'm also very well educated, I have had so far a wonderful life with numerous accomplishments and experiances that most could only dream of doing. I have always been professionally employed and have a strong background in aviation, military, and law enforcement.

I'd also like to add, as some of you might guess with my screen name, a strong passion for hand to hand combat sports. With saying that, please do not take me along with other fighters as big dumb animals with aggressive behaviors that have an act of trying to prove themselfs through intimidation or violence. I know there are those who are, but that's far and few inbetween when it comes to fighters like myself and ones who have never had strong experiances in both amiture and professional orginazations. My parents started me in boxing at age 9, and have been competing or training ever since. And yes I was a pro in both boxing and MMA.

Another thing I should add is that all my life I have been very physically gifted. Most people who meet me almost refuse to believe that I'm my age and not twenty something, especially with the injuries I have endured, and especially with the injuries and issues I'm having now. That's probably because I'm obsessed with physical fitness and pushing myself past the limits most would never attempt or want. Maybe it's a sickness, and if is its never going to go away.

Anyways I've goined this forum for some insight, suggestions, and opinions about my current condition. After a little more research here I will share with everyone about my four neck surgeries and what has led me to come here for the above mentioned. Thank for reading and again hello to all.
