Osteopath: "Lie down, cross your arms over your chest, breathe in and hold it."

Me: *complies*

Him: *squeezetwistcrunch*

Me: *FART*

Yes, I am that classy.

Turns out my upper spine is almost entirely immobile and that is making my neck muscles work far too hard to hold my head in place. It can be fixed but it'll take a while. I get to roll around the floor on a little toy ball and have cold showers. Oh yay! And apparently occasionally fart in the general direction of the osteopath as he squeezes me. Can't wait.

So you'll be one client that he won't be thanking me for sending to him ;p

AND I TOLD HIM IT WAS YOU!

Apparently it's one of the risks of the job and happens reasonably regularly. But it was a real beauty, my old pony would have been proud.

If your neck/upper back is that messed up, do you think it could possibly be affecting your ear thing?

I guess it's possible but I hadn't thought of it. I know that my left ear being so deaf makes me skew my head around a lot to hear people and did wonder if that's what caused it, but he reckons it's more about the amount of time I spend at a desk. ;-/

I'm curious about the cold showers. What's that supposed to do?
(or is it punishment for the farting?)

Actually now you mention it, he didn't bring that up until after the flatulence.. hmm..

It's not an actual cold shower, just a 5 second cold blast at the end of a normal shower on the offending area. I think it's supposed to contract the muscles in a different way and stimulate the whole area to move, because it's been like this long enough that the muscles are all holding it stiff as well.

Well, the squeezetwistcrunching is meant to relieve pressure ...

The first thing I tell people who take aerial silks for the first time is to go to the bathroom first, as when you spend so much time focusing on other muscles and you aren't standing up, whoosh! goes your farts.
