The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's

Spinal Tap (the car wreck)

It was 1974 or so when I smacked a 1963 Beetle into a stoplight. Chiropracty says it MAY BE A MISALIGNED NECK VERTEBRAE THAT IS MESSING WITH ME AND GIVING ME PARKINSON’S! I’m not sure if I want that sort of “ADJUSTMENT”. I did sustain a compression fracture of the C7 vertebrae and wore a brace for a couple of months. The four year old son of my boss asked his momma “Is Mr. Marty’s head gonna’ fall off if he takes off that brace?” For now its gonna’ just be “take the medicine and don’t touch my neck man!”
