Arthritis 

“When I was in my early fifties I noticed my arm and shoulder felt sore to the touch. It wasn’t a throbbing pain, but if I rolled over on it while sleeping, it would wake me up. Then I had trouble opening jars. A few months later, I couldn’t zip my dress in the back. I had to sup- port one hand with the other to even lift a pan. Finally, I went to the doctor. Diagnosis: rheumatoid arthritis. He prescribed Celebrex and told me a lot of people my age “got arthritis.” I didn’t want to accept that. I was already going to an Upper Cervical doctor, but not regularly. Until the arthritis, I didn’t think I needed to because I felt good most of the time. But I decided to stop taking the Celebrex and get back under regular Upper Cervical Care. Within six months, the arthritis was gone. I knew it was gone when the soreness left and I could, once again, do the yoga postures I’d done for years. I’m 65 now and still no arthritis. I do, however, go to Dr. Drury for regular upper cervical checkups. I learned that just because you feel good doesn’t mean you’re in alignment. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
