Snap, Crackle, Pop!
Because of the sharp, shooting pain down my neck, shoulder and right arm, I decided to visit a chiropractor today for the first time - ever. In short, I learned a lot. I can barely remember half of what he said but I do recall him saying my spine, the arch specifically in my neck, is a bit more protruded than it should be. So, a few nerves are being pinched.
As a result, he did some adjusting (think snapping your neck to the right and left). He also applied cold therapy with electronic stimuli. I'm not sure I'm sold on the benefits of popping gas out of my neck (the "realignment"), but we'll see. I'll give it two weeks and reassess.
