It’s been a while since I’ve checked in with you. Mostly because I’m miserably sitting here typing with one hand, and it’s hard. Shoulder surgery suuuuuucks. I can say that with some authority, because in the last 24 months, I’ve had both brain and spine surgery, and they were cake walks compared to this. The adhesions in my newly tightened shoulder joint are pulling on my hypermobile neck, and causing all kinds of problems. (Neck fusion being the next fix on the horizon.) Though I won’t be able to use it after I have hardware in my neck, I am so thankful to have our Posture Pump® in the meantime to help prepare me for that surgery, and relieve me of my symptoms.
I’m not sure exactly why it works in the short term, but it does. When I have painful muscle spasms, because my shoulder is pulling on my neck and cervical spine, the balloon mechanism soothes the cramping, and makes the pain better right then and there (I am careful to not overdo it.) How it is helping me in the long term has been well established on their very informative website. As I wrote in my previous review, I have a very straight neck; so much so, that it was starting to go backwards. If my neurosurgeon went in to screw things together as is, I would be stuck like that forever. But now, thanks to the Posture Pump®, I am safely, comfortably, reversing the curve, so that I have the best chance at solidifying a “normal,” healthy neck posture come the big day.
But don’t just take my word for it – listen to what my kids #TheRubberDucks have to say:
“It’s just like magic! The other day I had a headache, and I used it. It went away, and I didn’t even need to use medicine.” – #TheStretchySon
“When my neck is weak, and I can’t hold up my head, it helps me regain cervical strength. I can tell right away that I feel stronger.” – #TheDurableDaughter
I know that my kids love the Posture Pump®, because THEY USE IT. Do you know how much PT crap we have lying around our house? We could start a business. Normally, they are experts at pretending it’s not there. And yet, when something truly helps them get out of pain, they manage to get ‘er done.
