Another term for this condition is something known as “wry neck”. Basically it is similar to a really bad muscle spasm, almost similar to the sensation of a “Charlie-horse”, but in the case of Torticollis, it occurs in the neck.
quotes in latin Learning French improves your English!Learning any language improves your feel for language in general. Also, when we use a word of French origin in English it tends to have a ‘higher’ meaning. An ‘envoy’ is really just a messenger (from the French envoyer – ‘to send’), but is mostly used in international politics and diplomacy. There are many such examples but the point is that learning a word in French will often also teach you or refresh for you the meaning of a ‘high register’ English word. So learning French can actually have a positive impact on your English!
Drive around Japan and you will probably see small RVs, which are recreational vehicles. They are little cabins on wheels for camping with space for sleeping, showering, and cooking. RVs in America are usually much bigger; some have toads. A toad is slang for a car that you tow behind your RV. Drive somewhere in a 40-foot RV, which is a fairly standard size, and you will probably not want to drive the RV if you have to go grocery shopping or run errands. The toad is the answer and many people with RVs have toads. We think the word “toad” comes from “towed.” RVs come in many sizes, some under 20 feet and some about 40 feet.
Have you ever noticed that car dealers always ask something like, “how much did you plan to spend per month”? That is not meant to be a friendly introduction, though that is how it comes across.

Did you know that a large portion of the English vocabulary we commonly use is derived from Latin? Well, this was a gift from the French, but the interesting thing is that Spanish is a latin language as well. So, what I am trying to say is that you can understand English grammar and language better when you start to learn Spanish.
When you see the words OD, that stands for the words Oculus Dexter, which are the latin words for right eye. And OS stands for Oculus Sinister, known in English as the left eye. The higher the number on your card is, the stronger the frames need to be. The lower, the weaker the frames need to be. It’s actually very simple to understand, and if you don’t get it you can always ask your ophthalmologist to explain the prescription to you.
That is where the audios come into play. Listen to them everyday (as often as you can) and during a relaxing part of your day. You may or may not be paying full attention to it though it pays well to be attentive to what you are listening to. Listen to it while you are driving, while you are traveling, while you are having your lunch (if you are lunching alone, that is), just before you go to bed.
