Some people try to blame their pain on their obesity. In some cases this is true, but what I have seen in practice is that this is far less true than you would think. I recently had a lady patient who is over 400 lbs and she had low back pain that was excruciating especially when she worked since she was on her feet all day. She was worried that she would not be able to work and not be able to pay her rent and take care of herself. After a couple weeks of care, she was pain-free and has been pain-free for about 7 months without losing any weight.
Anyone who hasn’t heard anything about concussion by now must be living under a rock. Though this article is not really about concussions it is about NECK INJURY, which can mimic almost every concussion symptom. The problem with most people that have concussions is that they don’t know that their injury actually caused two problems: concussion and neck injury. It takes less force to injure the neck than it takes to get a concussion, so if you get a concussion, it is almost guaranteed that you also have a neck injury as well.
