Shortly after getting married to Chinese actor Fu Yiming (傅浤鳴), Niki Chow (周勵淇) starting filming for a new historical drama. While filming, the constant exposure to the hot and humid weather caused her to have a heat stroke. Two months later, Niki’s body began showing more symptoms of distress: she frequently had migraines, dizziness, and nausea during filming.
Worried about her health, her husband accompanied Niki back to Hong Kong to seek medical help. The doctor’s results alarmed Niki. “My cervical vertebra shifted, which doesn’t allow for a lot of oxygen to enter my body. That’s why I’m having these symptoms. Thank goodness I checked early on because if I didn’t, there is a chance of a stroke.”
Apparently, the weight of her hairpieces for historical dramas had put a lot of pressure on her neck and spine. Previous filming injuries, poor sleeping posture, and prolonged bending of her head while looking at her cell phone have caused her cervical vertebrae to shift.
Luckily, her drama is complete and Niki is waiting for treatment to begin. “I need physical therapy for a long period of time. Whenever I have time, I’ll exercise more. I hope to recover quickly.”
