Who knew that being a conscientious dog owner would be such a HUGE ‘pain in the neck’?
Read my story and learn how I solved my aches and pains.
Our beloved dog, Morgan had surgery less than a month ago. His incisions needed protection from his tongue and teeth, in order to heal. We had to create a ‘Post-Op Body Protector’ from a size 4x t-shirt.
We think he looks cute – but not to sure he thinks the same. Given that he’s a male – you can see that the T-shirt has to be removed in order to have a ‘piddle’ break.
That’s where my ‘pain in the neck’ problems started. I don’t mean the hassle of taking the shirt on and off. It was that he needed to be ‘guarding’ him when he was naked outside. If given the opportunity, a dog will always get the tongue/teeth going on incisions or bumps.
I set up a stool by the door to our dog yard where Morgan took his bathroom breaks. I could peek out the window just like I am in the photo on the left. Otherwise, I had my phone or a book in my hand to keep myself amused (as you can see it the photo at the top of this blog).
Coincidentally during this time, I developed a huge PAIN IN MY NECK. Thank goodness I viewed a great video posted by Dr. Frazer Smith, my chiropractor. I had been having neck and upper back pain after a week of doing my surveillance routine. When I watched the video – I realized WHY.
This is a serious problem for tons of folks. It’s called ‘Text Neck’ and it can become a chronic issue if not addressed. To see what this is all about – click to play the video below and watch Dr. Frazer.
By doing what he suggested – I was able to get rid of the aches and pains in just a few days. So – don’t delay. WATCH this video and be sure to share this blog with everyone. Young people who are on their phones a lot will be setting themselves up for long term neck and spine problems if they aren’t aware of this.
As a BONUS resource, I found a great article from the Washington Post titled “Text neck’ is becoming an epidemic and could wreck your spine”. Great illustrations and explanation.
