Neat trick

Dr. Grumpy: "What do you do when the hand goes numb?"

Mr. Palmer: "I take out my neck and adjust it."

Is he a wanna-be D.O. sans training?

You take your right hand put it behind your head down near the nape of your neck, push up and to the left with hard pressure, when it cracks the numbness goes out of your fingers. Like self performed chiropractic, everyone does it. Or use your left hand and go the other way if you need to. Experiment until you get it right.

(sigh) I thought this was a new treatment for my carpal/ulnar tunnel syndromes - for a moment, I thought I might get to have sensation in my hands again. And then I see it only works on necks - do you think it matters if they're turkey or chicken?

Is it possible that your patient plays some sort of stringed instrument? Been pondering this since yesterday and it kept coming back to that as a possibility.

Just make sure you do not hear banjo music in the background when you ask them.

stay safe.

I'm just curious where he was stashing his neck. In his pocket?
