Displaced vertebra = inability to use arm.

The last two weeks have been so very, very exciting. I woke up in the morning a few Thursdays ago and found myself unable to look from left to right or up and down without some extreme pain through my neck and shoulder area. The stiffness of my neck and shoulder was nothing new since I have been dealing with a bum shoulder-blade for the last few years. The pain was entirely new.

Sitting, standing, laying down, it didn’t matter to this brand new stabbing sensation. I finally buckled down and went to visit the chiropractor. I would have gone to a normal doctor at first but I can’t really bring myself to go to the hospitals around my town. I had work to do after all.

So I get in and to my delight the chiropractor was a young practitioner. I did not catch when he graduated from his schooling but I thought it might have been 2010. In either case the years upon years of dealing with assholes like me had not taken its toll on the young doctor and his assistant and they helped out with information, describing to me what was wrong with my shoulder, and even started cracking and popping things back into place.

It turned out that a vertebra or something in my spine that should have been horizontal was more along the lines of diagonal and it was pinching nerves in my shoulder and neck area. It took three visits but the discomfort level every time I left was significantly lowered.

While they don’t have my facebook or any of my blog information I still want to give a shout-out to Dr. Trevor Tennant and Abigail Rose. I don’t put my faith in too many doctors of any sort with my past experiences but you guys are the best.
