What a difference a week makes!
One week ago I was in so much back pain that I could hardly function! Now a week later I am nearly pain free. My back is by no means healed, but I've come a long way. Biggest reason is because I started going to a chiropractor. OMG~ I am in love with the guy now! (OK...maybe not the guy but what he's done for me!!! Good thing he's not attractive...LOL!) Before this morning's session I thought he'd say I was all better and would not need to come back, but I soon realized that I still have a ways to go before I'm fully healed. I have a high pain tolerance and I've been totally babying my back the last several days. Must of my tightness is now in my middle back. The chiropractor didn't do any adjusting at all because of how tight my back is. I was able to sit most of the weekend (including 8 hours total in the car) and wasn't in pain, so I am planning on being out of bed and (sitting) in front of my computer this week. I am also going to start doing my stretching and exercises (that I learned at PT years ago) and even walk more than a block. I'm going to be slow to return to bending and lifting, so the house will remain a mess for a few days. I think I can handle loading the dishwasher though. No Wii Fit though!!!
