    Sunday my wife was collecting yard paraphernalia for me to store in the basement in preparation for winter. Houses next to a lake generally have crawlspaces, but we have a partial basement with about 5' of headroom. Not paying attention I didn't bend over enough and whacked the top of my head into a beam, and I moving fast and hit HARD. Thought I was going to pass out. My neck made a huge cracking sound. I had to collect myself for a moment to be sure I didn't pass out and had instant thought of people breaking their neck diving into a shallow pool. The cracking sound was terrifying!

    Once I was convinced I was conscious, not paralyzed, and the blood wasn't life threatening, something amazing happened. I realized I could move my head around without any neck pain (something chronic I suffer from). It's unbelievable. The pain is gone!

    Sometimes my wife will walk on my back as part of a massage. It feels good and does seem to help. She offers to crack my neck by twisting my head but I always refuse as it scares the hell out of me. Guess I'll reconsider.

    I'm glad you are ok. I'd advise against letting anyone crack your neck for you.

    I have had a similar thing happen. took a fall and right after I noticed my back no longer hurt the way it did before. unfortunately it came back a few days later and it was much worse.

    Agreed. But if she breaks my neck I can't think of a better way to go.

    I suspect the pain will return. But it's wonderful to be without pain, if but for a few days.

    Imagine your wife trying to explain it to the police.

    I think the only one that stays clean above 5 is the Havoc. That thing is scary! Makes a Twin Reverb sound like a Champ.

    I call BS! I whack my head off of everything when I'm crawling through houses. My neck is killing me and has for twenty years. Can I try your beam? :)

    My dad built the family lake cabin scaled to his height. I'm about an inch and a half taller than he is. Every time I visit the lake, I find the rafters. *THWACK!!!!* tweety birds.

    Can't tell you the number of times I've whacked into the damn things. But never with the kinetic energy of yesterday.

    The broken back won't be the half of it, how about all those rags stuffed in his mouth?
