Remember those days - those precious days
when backs were hardly thought about.
Youth had no time for aches and pains.
Getting out of bed to start the day was easy.
Doing anything was easy, and pain free.
Did you run, skip, do handstands, and back bends?
Were you a gymnast, a skier, a cheerleader, a dancer?
Did you dance the romantic tango?
There are about 16 treatment rooms at my physiotherapist practice.
I've been stretched to my limits in most of them, then relaxed with a
heating pad and ocean sounds. I always choose the ocean which is
so peaceful, and sometimes, I admit, I have a little 15 minute snooze
at the end of my session.
This vibrant print was hanging in Monday's treatment room. . . .
I love it and wish my back could do those sensuous tango bends.
Meanwhile, there is good news, the hip and leg pain caused by my
arthritic spine problem is so much better after two months of PT. . .
and an injection. I am so thankful to those who have helped me.
Chronic pain is so debilitating and depressing.
I will go on my trip next week and hopefully be able to do
everything - but I will be careful too.
