Let me make you aware of how I happened to get arthritis in neck? I had lived on this earth for only 7 years. I stood back and assessed the situation. I had just leaped over a wired fence approximately three feet high. That was not tall enough. So, now I tied a rope between two of the posts thus making the height to clear about 3 and a half feet. I started off slow as a turtle, increased my speed and vaulted for the moon. I had a savaged awakening to reality. My neck met the rope, a perfect fit, and I was catapulted like a canon ball back to the earth.
Being young, I was able to bounce back, so I got up, wipe the dust away and went about my business. That was a costly mistake that I would not realize how costly until years later. In my leap for the moon I rashly lost the natural curve in my neck and developed straight neck or military neck leading to my problem, arthritis in the neck. This all happened about five decades ago.
Upon reaching 30 years of age a chiropractor diagnosed me with whiplash, straight or military neck, boo hoo. I was informed by my chiropractor that there was no known cure but he could stop the progression of the straight neck. Callously, he told me I could die when I was about 60 years old. Now when I became 58 years-old those infamous words that had agonized me for some 28 years finally came to the fore.
Not long ago, my neck began to pain me. Upon going to sleep I felt what seem to be needles protruding out of the back of my neck. To get relief I had to sleep on my back in a certain position. I started doing neck exercises and that helped. At my wits end, I took a trip to the chiropractor. Upon taking x-rays he told me that I had developed spurs on the vertebrae of my neck and as a result arthritis had set in. He adjustmented me and told me that he could not “heal me” only stop the advancement of the military neck. I had two treatments but felt that it was doing little good. He had a treatment schedule for me. His plan was to give me two treatments per week for a month, then one treatment per week the second month and thereafter a treatment per month.
Desperately I began searching the Internet trying to find a miraculous cure for military neck. Needless to say, there was no panacea. However, I did find two web sites that discussed putting the curve back into the neck. I was really moved with one of them. Rather than going to the chiropractor twice a week for the first month, I opted to invest in a neck straightener device for the price 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 walked around all day sighing. Sleep fled from me. In fact, I had to sleep in a certain position on my back. I was unable to sleep on my sides. After six months of using this device my pain decreased from a 10 to a 3. After a year my neck pain disappeared completely. I am still using the device 2 or 3 times a week to keep the neck pain from ever returning. 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.
