Playtime at the Hospital: C1-C2 Instability

Thanks to Ohio State University (OSU) Medical Center's library, which unfortunately was made available to me as a visitor because my dad-in-lawesome was having emergency surgery, I was able to play with a model spine and make a quick video to briefly describe C1-C2 instability. Hopefully, this will give you a better idea of what I spoke about in my last post. I am still set to have the fusion surgery at the end of February. Until then, the doctor's written me a prescription to get a neck collar to wear when I am having stability issues or pain. I will be getting the Miami J Collar with the opening in the front, which will make it easier to wear since I have problems with things being tight around my neck. Until next time, enjoy your day and take a moment to pat yourself on the back for being such wonderful people. I am so thankful for each and every one of you - my readers.

 

Love, hugs, and autumn leaves!

It explained it much better. I live in Ontario Canada. I have very bad neck instability. May I ask who your doctor is who discovered this; so that maybe I could pay to go see him somehow. I need something or someone who understand EDS to help.

Thank you
