‘He Could’ve Died’: Man Suffers Stroke After Popping His Neck

‘He Could’ve Died’: Man Suffers Stroke After Popping His Neck”

After further examination, an arterial gram showed that the torn arteries had caused the stroke.

This isn't the first time someone has suffered after trying to crack their neck.

"That being said, I can not express how grateful I am for all the help I've received during this stressful time".

The effects of a stroke depend on the part of the brain that was damaged and the amount of damage done.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says strokes occur in 795,000 Americans each year and kill around 140,000.

The main symptoms of stroke can be remembered with the word F.A.S.T.

"He could have formed more clot on that tear and had a life-ending stroke", Dr. McCollom, a radiologist at Mercy Hospital, said.

Arms: Ask the person to raise both arms.

"The moment I heard the pop, everything on my left side started to go numb", said Josh Hader of Guthrie, who tore a neck artery leading to his brain, according to KOCO.

"They completely understand what's going on, but they can't communicate". They can't move anything. "Towards the end, they would make it nearly impossible for me to breathe for a few seconds and that was scary", he said. His doctor Vance McCollom, at Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, said he could have died. But Hader says the most hard part has been emotional. He also had to go to physical therapy.

Hader had to wear an eye patch for several days and take medicine. Also, he had a unusual side effect: painful hiccups that lasted for almost two weeks.

'They were bad, nothing could make them go away, ' he said. I had to sit up and gasp for air'.

"Double vision. Blurry vision", he said.

Now, Hader has gotten better at walking without a walker and is no longer hesitant when it comes to caring for his five-year-old daughter, Wrigley, and one-year-old son, Oliver.

Hader was on the younger side to experience a stroke, Orra said.

It's been a month since his stretch turned into a stroke - and Hader is still dealing with some residual effects. "My left side tingles a little and feels heavier than it used to".

Doctors say it was probably a freak accident and some might be wondering if there's any safe way to pop or stretch your neck.

"We have partners coming to hospital with more serious stuff, due to chiropractic manipulation, by popping neck by a professional", he said, before suggesting, "If I want to pop my neck, I just pop it side to side".
