Hey, I just found this site and so I signed up :P After reading some of the forums on here,I feel kind of bad complaining, as I have still never experienced pain from my condition.
I'll give the quick rundown. I was rear-ended a couple years ago at a red light. I received chiropractic care and learned that two of the vertabrea in my neck (I believe it was along the lines of 4 and 5, but not really sure) are fused. The chiropractor told me it shouldn't cause problems and it won't effect too much in my daily life.
I am a singer in a band, and have been singing for about 5 and a half years or so, but only in the past 2 years or so I have received lessons, and even then, few and far between. I mentioned my condition to my vocal coach and she said that it will actually make a big difference, mostly with projecting my voice with the same power that most will do more effortlessly.
So basically I guess what I'm asking for is some advice on how to compensate physically or if anyone here has a similar situation. I know singing is something that takes a lot of time and patience, and I am definitely willing to put in the time to develop my voice. It is sometimes just very discouraging to put in so much effort and see so little progress.
