  • neck

    a car couldn't stop in the snow and slid out a parking lot in front of me and I had to stop on a dime

    think this happened 2 or 3 wks ago, but ever since have had neck pain (more than nl)
    it is not all the time but it gets worse if I lift (shovelling, laundry)

    have heat on my neck now but really need to do laundry
    what else can I do for it?

  • Anti-inflammatories? Turmeric?
    Rest. Stretching...


    • thanks kitty

      use turmeric as a spice on food? or something else


      • Turmeric recipe is on this site.

        How about a therapeutic massage?


        • Initially use cold to reduce swelling before using heat to promote faster healing.

          Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

            went to store but forgot to buy turmeric root; have never seen it but never looked, either
            would it be near the garlic and ginger root?

            was going to try a tennis ball on my neck tonite (for massage) but I'm already in bed and don't want to get up and look for one, heat did help today


            • You should be able to find ground turmeric with the spices. The only place I've ever seen the actual root is at a fruit market. I bought some recently. It was pretty cheap.

              Will reap with a joyful shout." - Psalm 126


              • kitty tea recipe said to use turmeric root
                I don't know if the ground spice would be the same to make tea?

                never made tea from scratch before so don't know; always use tea bags


                • You can make it with the ground turmeric but it's not nearly as good. It has a chalky taste and odd after taste, that's much less pronounced with the root. Plus, I just think using the root is getting more benefit.

                  It's typically by the ginger, yes. Ask your produce manager to order some. Or order it online.
                  If you have an Indian grocery in your city, they'll have the best roots and beets.

                          wondering if I have reinjured something from the accident I had yrs ago


                          • had physical therapy then and ultrasound on my neck


                            • That's not quite the same as "muscle memory"...
                              But of course, if you have a previous injury, it's very likely to be a factor.

                                just found this forum. I'm studying Medicine so will try to keep it up with some answers.

                                Do you have a disability and get tired of being told you're inspirational for doing everyday things? Or perhaps you consider it a true compliment?...
