A few years ago I developed a bad neck problem. My son, Derek, and I had been working on his house seven days a week for nearly a year. Mostly I was painting or staining wood along with some hammering and nailing. All this time I was using my right arm extensively.
I began having an annoying pain in the left side of my neck/head. It was bad in the evening, especially when there was any stress. I was fearful of some kind of blockage in a vein or artery, but the doctor dispelled that. My first insight came from a therapist who gave me a massage in Eureka Springs, AR. She observed that while my right shoulder was easily manipulated my left shoulder could not be manipulated in a certain way: it was “frozen” (This was not obvious to me as the “freezing” was somehow related to the shoulder/ribs linkages).
