After suffering a neck injury whilst training at the gym, and waiting 3 months for this neck injury to resolve itself, without success, it was time to act. The pain from this neck injury had spread along my left shoulder and along my left arm, due to a nerve becoming trapped in the neck. My first port of call was my local GP. After an x-ray, and pain killers and being advised that there was a potential waiting period of 9 weeks before I could see a physiotherapist, and the pain in my neck, shoulder and arm was now affecting my day to day living, and stripping me of my daily energy. This was a very bleak future; of high dose pain killers, with serious side effects, lacking in energy, and enthusiasm, due to the pain; and my sleeping pattern had become more erratic than a banks lending policy.
