Can Fireworks Cause Neck Pain?

Can Fireworks Cause Neck Pain?

I woke up this morning with an awful kink in my neck.  My neck would turn to the left, but definitely not the right.  I jumped in the shower to get some heat on it and tried to massage the muscles.  It started to feel better.  So I got ready for work and headed out the door.

As I was backing out of my driveway, I quickly realized that the pain in my neck was not just muscles.  As I attempted to turn my head to see out of the back window, I felt a sharp, stabbing pain.  I knew they only way this was going away was to make an appointment to get a chiropractic adjustment.

As I drove to work I tried to figure out why my neck was in such pain.  It was the fourth of July and we had a very relaxing day.  Then it hit me… the fireworks.

We had an awesome fireworks display in our neighborhood last night, but sitting on the blanket and looking up at the sky to watch the show must have caused one of my joints to get stuck.  If anyone else woke up with this same problem, give me a call.  We will be in the office regular hours today.  I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday.
