In This Moment's Chris Howorth Diagnosed With Acute Arthritis

In This Moment

(TeamRock Radio) In This Moment guitarist Chris Howorth has been diagnosed with acute arthritis in his neck and shoulders. In April, the band cancelled their May European tour dates due to what was described at the time as a neck injury to Howorth. But doctors have now given him more details on what was causing the pain, diagnosing arthritis.

Despite this, Howorth says he's determined to continue working with In This Moment. He reports: "I woke up in severe pain and unable to move my head in any direction, it felt like my neck was fused. I must have unknowingly injured it working the day before in our band storage unit.

"I immediately sought medical attention and now, after four weeks of therapy and meds, I am getting some mobility back. Unfortunately I have been diagnosed with acute arthritis in my neck and shoulders. It's something I'm going to have to live with from now on but I'm determined to continue writing and performing with my band." Read more here.
