In other news, I had a meeting with a chiro today about my neck pain. I think chiros are BS but I got a free examination and massage so I figured what the heck. Guy said my neck is pitched forward, probably related to my work set-up (which I agree with). His suggested approach (besides seeing him for like 30 sessions and giving him a ton of $$$) was for me to spend 10 minutes each night hanging my head off the foot of my bed. I get this intuition but I am guessing this is some chiro BS. Thoughts? I am obviously not going back to him but would entertain doing the neck bed thing.
I've seen bad chiros and good chiros. The one I'm seeing right now has helped tremendously.
The hanging your head off the foot of the bed thing is essentially a free, at-home way of doing traction. Basically it will relieve some of the pressure on your neck and let muscles/nerves stretch out some. It's totally legit and has helped me in the past.
