    beatdown,

    sounds like your on the right track

    i'm glad x-rays were done

    what's the diagnosis again?

    meex's advise regarding massage is good

    but man if you think there are some chiro quacks out there, just wait

    interview a few massage therapists and ask for references

    i recommend the elite variety that are doing massage on pro athletes

    you can be really fucked up by a bad or new therapist

    or you can get one that advertises "hard body co-ed named Candy specializes in mid-night massage"

    you'll feel better either way

    don't let just any massage therapist do serious work on you bro, apply due dillegence in the selection process

    also, i dub classic whole body chiro as "old skool chiro"

    they don't just diagnos and treat the spine, they adjust any joint that needs it

    a good chiro is like a jazz musician, they don't know what they are playing until they play it and then it feels so good/perfect or even yes i'll say it .....GROOVY!

    > what's the diagnosis again?
    The doctor says, pinched nerve in the neck.
    The chiro says, three subluxated vertebrae in the neck, one in the back, two near the hip.

    I'll let the chiro try his stuff for three sessions or so and see if it gets any better. If not, that probably means he's not more helpful than just resting the injury... which is what I'll do in that case.
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

    Posted by Mr_Mantis: Hmm, I didn't know they used anesthetic in conjunction with an EMG/NCT. In fact it may confound the test, anyone know for sure?
    No anesthetic is used. Mine didn't hurt; almost feel asleep when he was poking needles in my neck. You guys whimps?

    Well. . .maybe the doctor was just being a d*ck. he jabbed the needle in my arm and shoulder at least 50-60 times, I was bleeding, and the next day there were bruises at each of the points he stuck the needle(s) in.

    Fall asleep? never happen with my test.
    Wimp? I didn't complain (maybe I should've said something), as I figured anything that involved poking needles in there would be a little sore.
    And, what I asked the nurse was how all the others there handled it, since most were old folks.

    OTOH - maybe I had some nerve damage that made it more sensitive?

    (btw - I'm a pain freak. . .rarely take pain relievers, even after a few operations. . .have quite a few tats, too.)
