Many years ago I suffered a neck injury during a workout routine. Like most young adults, I thought little of it. Like a scar that would heal or a blemish that would fade, this muscle tear would miraculously patch itself up and all would be well in the world. Well of course that didn’t happen. For years I struggled with spasms, often finding myself in a soft collar or at ER. I was instructed to treat it like whiplash, with exercises designed to gently stretch the muscles that had been damaged. They sent me to various specialists, I tried unusual pillows, heat treatments, massage therapy and increasing powerful pain killers. Everything seemed so short term.
Then one day a friend of mine, recognized similarities between my injury and his own and suggested I set up a consultation with his chiro. At this stage I had nothing to lose so I gave it a go. That meeting changed my life. I went from having 3 or 4 spasms per year to having none and what’s even better; losing the fear of knowing that another spasm could be just around the corner.
I still returned to the chiro once every 6 months, but that was for maintenance, there was never any pain. From that moment on, I was a strong advocate of chiropractic treatment, it gave me back so much in so little time when all else had failed.
I was therefore delighted when Dr. Brad Deakin of the Life Lounge Chiropractic and Health Center popped in for a headshot. Here’s what he had to say.
