Would you like to know how I came to have arthritis in neck? I had lived on this earth for only 7 years. I stood back and assessed the situation. I felt proud as I just had floated over a fence made of wire about three feet high. However, I just had to go higher. So, now I tied a rope between two of the posts thus making the height to clear tall as I was. I started off slow as a turtle, increased my speed and vaulted for the moon. I had a savaged awakening to reality. My neck welcomed the rope and I was sent in an orbit like a rocket but straight to the ground.
Being young, I was able to bounce back, so I got up, wipe the dust away and went about my business. I had no idea that decades later I would pay dearly for that mighty leap. In jumping for the moon I took the natural curve out of my neck and developed what is called a straight neck or military neck that led to me having arthritis in neck. This all happened about 50 years ago.
When I was about 30 I went to a chiropractor and was told that I had whiplash, straight or military neck. My chiropractor informed me that this was not fixable, but he could stop the advancement of the straight neck. Want to hear some shocking news? He told me this could lead to my death at 60 years of age. Upon turning 58 years-old those seemingly recurring words that had terrorized me for some 28 years finally came to a climax.
Recently, I began to have pain in my neck. When I would go to bed at night I would feel needle like sensations in the back of my neck. I had to sleep on my back in a certain position to get relief. I began doing neck exercises and that helped. In desperation I went back to the chiropractor. Upon taking x-rays he informed me that there were spurs on the vertebrae of my neck and as a result arthritis had developed. He gave me an adjustment and told me that he could not “cure me” only stop the advancement of the straight neck. After two treatments I felt that they were not doing me any good. His game plan was to give me two treatments a week for the first month, then one treatment per week the second month and thereafter he would give me a treatment per month.
I looked on the Internet trying to find some miracle for straight neck. No cure was to be found. Yet, I did find two web sites that alluded to getting the curve back into the neck. I was really impressed with one of them. So, instead of going to the chiropractor two times a week for the first month, I invested in a neck straightener device for the cost of two visits to the chiropractor. Following directions, I use this device daily for a few minutes and the result was that I was gradually getting the curve back in my neck. But, more importantly, I was gaining relief from the neck pain.
Now, the pain I had was very severe. I paced the floors heaving sighs. I tossed and turned all night. In reality, as mentioned earlier, I slept in a fixed position on my back. I was unable to sleep on my sides. After six months of using this device I would say my pain decreased from a 10 to a 3. I achieved complete relief from neck pain after a year’s time. I am still using the device two or three times per week as insurance so I can avoid future neck pain. If you have whiplash, stiff neck, straight neck or military neck please do yourself a kindness and try this neck straightener device. In my case it stopped my arthritis in the neck and it is putting the natural curve back. Free at last, free at last, I am pain free at last. So, can you.
