Pain In the Neck

Car accident with whiplash, then working at Disneyland as a character with the heavy Chip n' Dale head on top of my own head didn't help the healing process. Five years after the accident, my neck still hurts once in a while. More like once every month, since i go to chiropractor to get it adjusted, and a massage to relief the pain. I am so glad that I have these resources; even though my chiropractor and massage therapist charge me a pretty reasonable and affordable price, it can still add up and get expensive if I have to go too much.

I wish everyone can live pain free this life, I am only 24, and my neck is already jacked up. I have noticed that i have more frequent pain because of my weight gain. Now, THAT, is a great motivation to exercise and loose weight. Not to have a wash board tummy, but to lessen the weight on my shoulder and back.... and just feel great. oh gosh, I just love those creamy milk chocolate so much.

This site has awesome information from fitness to how to prevent injuries. Yoga is my favorite, it's in slow motion, it helps to strengthen and stretch. Everyone should incorporate yoga into their lives. Especially those of us who has a desk job.... and those like me who doesn't like to run.

This is a cool chiropractic tool. Everyone should own one, and know how to use it too. http://www.livestrong.com/video/2849-neck-adjustment-from-chiropractor/
