As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I hurt my back during a yoga class. I kept on waiting and waiting to feel better but it never happened. My husband suggested I see a chiropractor. One of our neighbors is a chiropractor but I have never been to him nor have I ever been to any chiropractor. Many of my friends have gone to one for various injuries. I didn’t really think my injury required a chiropractor but after not working out for over a week and still feeling pain (despite Advil and those stinky Ben Gay pads), I decided to make an appointment.
The reality was that I was scared. Very, very scared. The good news is that after two visits, I am almost back to normal. He did suggest I take it easy for a while, so today all I did was take a 45 minute power walk. My back still hurt! It is not the same pain as before; I really feel like I have lost strength after not working out for 2 weeks. I feel so sad but I refuse to feel sorry for myself. I will continue to take it easy and slowly move back into my regular fitness routine. After I stretched, I did 30 push ups. I am now feeling much better. I REALLY missed moving my body!
