re: dizzy and lightheaded, 1 thing my docs missed

Hi, the therapy is called counter strain. The PT just puts me in a certain position for a bit and this releases the knots and tension. It works very well. This is completely different from what I originally had years ago on my neck. At that time the only way they knew to get the knots out was the deep tissue massage, and this was very painful but it did work. The new therapy ( counter strain ) is gentle, not painful at all, and worked very well and quick. I hope you can get some help with your painful neck, this also took care of my symptoms of dizziness and off balance feeling. Good luck to you
