I was playing goalie in a soccer game and dove to make a save and ended up rolling my neck. I ended up getting torticollis and started having spasms in class when I moved my head too far to one side. This eventually got so bad that my whole body would start shaking and I would be seeing white flashes when the spasms came on. At this point my mother took me to the doctor who prescribed Valium and 6 sessions of physical therapy which spanned three weeks, I also had to go get an X-ray of my neck, with all of this occurring on my birthday. The medicine and physical therapy were helping, but were taking time and with the start of baseball season I needed a quicker way to get myself once again in playing condition. My grandpa is a polarity therapist, one of if not the best practitioner in the area, so I called him for a session of polarity therapy. I went in to the session with my head fully cocked to the right and unable to lower my right shoulder, and after 45 minutes of laying fully clothed on a massage table while he worked on me, I actually fell asleep it was so relaxing, I sat up and had full range of motion in my neck again. He then told me to keep my head straight and to apply moist heat periodically to my neck to keep the muscles loose. After a follow up session I was good as new. The physical therapists were amazed by the improvence and after 2 more physical therapy sessions to ensure everything healed well I was cleared to play baseball again.Read More Read Less
