For the past 2 years I have had a clicky neck.
It does not hurt, however as I turn my head from side to side I sound like Thomas the tank train rattling on his tracks...very strange!
Well the clicking recently went from a slightly annoying noise to a pain that would wake me up in the night as I turned over. This then became a huge issue as I would toss & turn waking up Sir L. Then my sleeping hours were disturbed & inadequate which lead to a grumpy mother and wife.
Sir L threatened divorce (jokingly) after a 6 month period as I would moan & groan & do nothing about it. He needed his sleep too.
A friend recommended a physical therapist so I booked an appointment......
All I can say being a non believer is that I have found Jesus!
My physical therapist diagnosed that my muscles were extremely tight & entrapped causing limited arm motion, neck and back pain. The reason or should we say cause is due to carrying kids on my hips...those darn little snuggly babies & cute toddlers have wrecked my body!
So now I have to go for therapy twice a week which is wonderful. (Thank you cute babies & toddlers.)
The therapist basically lays her hands on my muscles, I hardly feel a thing and then my arms go fizzy as the blood flows back into them.
I was very sceptical at first saying use more pressure as I expected a more vigorous and massage like approach.
Alas Daffodilly you were wrong!
The difference in my arm movements (which I did not know were heavily restricted) is amazing.
When I am lying on the couch & she puts her magic hands on me that really hardly seem to move I feel like one of the wounded who followed Jesus everywhere waiting for their turn to be cured.
Do not worry I am not becoming a bible basher but boy do I love physical therapy!
Who would have guessed Jesus would come back as a woman physical therapist!
