I had tried a couple of things try to fix the trouble I was having with my neck and back. I was at my wit’s end. I was not really sure what else to do. My wife said that I should try a Hitachi wand massager to see if that would do anything for me. I had not though about that previously, but was not really sure it would do me any good. I told her I would try it if things grew worse.

I first went to my doctor when I began having pain. The pain had been going on for at least three weeks. I even spent about three of those days in bed near the end of those three weeks. I could barely move because I hurt so much. I knew that I could not take any time off of work, so quickly made the doctor’s appointment. My doctor said that I probably strained my back at work because I do heavy lifting. He said that he could prescribe some pain pills, so I took him up on that offer. The only problem is that what he gave me makes me very tired. I obviously cannot get in a good day at work doing my job well if I am lethargic, so I had to stop taking the prescription. I had already tried taking over the counter pain meds, so I was not sure what else to do.

After my wife’s suggestion, the pain grew worse. I asked her if she would order the massager so that it would arrive overnight. I had to do something because I could not miss any work days. It arrived the next afternoon and she tried it out on my back. I worried that it would hurt at first, but it worked! I could slowly feel my neck and back muscles loosening up. I was so grateful to find a solution.
