I had mentioned it on my updates thread, but thought I had put a separate post so those waiting for work are aware of the delays. My neck freezes up on me from time to time. Its an occupational hazard and there are probably changes I can make to some work surface heights to help avoid it as I am working more in different ways with blade finishing, I will need to adapt to make long sessions comfortable.
Anyway sometimes it clears up as quickly as it comes on, with a little rest combined with stretching. Sometimes it turns into quite a painful situation where I need to be zonked out on painkillers for a few days to avoid it going into spasm. This is unfortunately now the case. Although it feels awful right now, it does seem to get better quite quickly after any inflamation subsides. So I will likely be unable to work for a week/10 days. I intend to see an osteopath monthly from now on even if I am having no problems. Hopefully this will help avoid delays in the future which are an annoyance to customers and a burden to the business. i notice most of the farmers around here visit an osteopath regularly to keep them fully operational, so i will do the same.
So if my posts go a bit ga ga for a while you also know why.
