Day 25

Move It or Fuse It

My neck is always one of the first things to go with a flare.  I’ve lost curvature and my hump is starting to show so I work really hard to keep as much range of motion as possible.  One of my strengthening workouts had some moves that involved the neck and I was shocked to find I could barely do them.  Up till then I guess I never really thought about strengthening my neck because I’ve always been more concerned with my back.  Once I started working more on it I noticed that the pain decreased and while I struggle for full range of motion I’ve got more than most so I’m not complaining.
