I was surprised. All the other times I have had prolotherapy, I have had a considerable amount of stiffness in the are on the following day. The day after shots in my neck, I felt no such stiffness. In fact, other than where the needles went in, I felt very little pain or stiffness in the area.
What was apparent though is that the neck is indeed connected to all the other areas. I found that my middle back had much more movement of vertebrae than I had previously experienced while stretching. By movement I mean those little cracks or adjustments that you can feel as you stretch or twist.
n short, I was surprised at how much the neck affected the rest of the back and the shoulders. It has now been almost a week and I have definitely noticed a difference, an improvement in my back and shoulders as a result of the prolotherapy shots on my neck.
