Its been awhile but I'm back, been away for quite some time and part of that was due to a neck condition that I had for the past two months. I forgot the name but it is basically where your neck muscles spasm constantly and it is painful as hell unless you take about 5 shots of Southern Comfort and pass out, which is not good but it sure as hell beat the pain.
After seeing my doctor, who is a D.O., getting many chiropractic manipulations done and seeing a specialist who said surgery is probably the only way to correct the problem, I decided to seek out ART. I live in Colorado Springs so I practically live next door to a practitioner.
AFTER TWO SESSIONS I am FREE OF THE PAIN and I can go BACK TO WEIGHTLIFTING.
The sessions hurt like hell but after the first one I could move my neck again, it may not seem like much but when I couldnt look to either side of myself for two months I was ecstatic. Also I couldnt lift for over two months and when I say couldnt I mean physically unable to. I still have spasms every once in a while and I do therapy to help rid myself entirely of those but this is my first week back at the gym and it feels great, actually in a way it sucks because I look terrible and I'm kind of embarrassed to be seen. Thats ok though, I'm doing Yoga and Pilates as well just to try and get healthy again.
I have to say though ART is amazing, it costs me close to three hundred out of pocket but it was well worth it.
By the way, its nice to see every body still here.
