I almost forgot that I had an appointment for physical therapy for my neck today. It was out in Wellesley, at Sports and Physical Therapy Associates. My left hand tends to start tingling from time to time. The therapist said my neck muscles were really tight on that side. She gave me some exercises, put heat and some electrical stimulation (it felt as if it was buzzing, but it was really sitting still and making the muscles vibrate) on that area, and then put my neck in a traction device that pulled my head up for ten seconds and let it back down for ten seconds, for a total of seven minutes. After five minutes or so I must have relaxed into it, because it started feeling pretty comfortable. When I left my neck felt better than it has in months. The tingling is still there, but it feels as though I’m going to get it under control.
