My neck pain extends down into my shoulder. I know bad posture has something to do with it. It’s not nearly as drastic as the hairdresser’s situation, but it causes me discomfort nonetheless. According to the doctors at Spine and Sports Medicine, physical therapy will help me restore the range of motion, relax my muscles and strengthen my postural endurance.

The pain in my neck from sitting too long at work with my head craned forward staring at the computer screen is nothing like the pain suffered by a trampoliner in the UK who was enjoying an outdoor barbeque party and a turn on the trampoline at a friend’s house when she suffered an accident that broke her neck. A former hairdresser, she was paralyzed and told she would be in a wheelchair for the rest of her life.

With the Fourth of July coming up and a sweet barbeque on the agenda, I’m hoping that my neck pain will be better soon. Like the hairdresser who is now actually walking on her own, hopefully I’ll “bounce back,” too. But, just to be on the safe side, I think I’ll steer clear of any trampolines.
