    Hi,
    Im hoping to start window cleaning as of 1st January. I suffer a bit with a bad neck. My ciropractor thinks this would be a bad job to start because of my neck. Is it as bad as he makes out?
    Cheers,
    Steve

    It can be if you have a bad neck but I'm ok with it.....Like anything you do can give you repeditive strain injury so maybe best for you to buy first a 5m harris pole from B&Q for £15 & stick a buish on the end then stand in your garden and pretend to clean the top windows to see if your kneck starts playing up.

    At least that way you will soon know instead of spending out on wfp kit.

    If you try and keep ur neck still a bit and bend back with the back it shouldn't be to bad, any part will ache for the first few days of doing it

    I went on the window cleaning course, there is a neck protector to stop you getting neck ache, not sure what its called though?

    RC do you know what am talking about??(I know you went on that course)

    I broke my neck and back, and have had no problems with using the pole.. Sometimes my arms feel like their burning. I sometimes get a sore back and neck in the mornings but using wfp does not increase or effect it
