I can't believe I'm logging into one of these
Military neck is instead of the natural curvature of your neck...it bends backward. I have it from having a profession of 20 years of leaning over people all day.
I had such intense pain...come to find out it really wasn't my neck, it was my jaw. Being A type person...I guess I grind my teeth, even when I wasn't aware.
I got some x-rays (freaked me out), some chiropractor adjustments and a bite guard to wear at night from my denist.
NO PAIN!!!! YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
I wish someone had shared this with me
