Again it was a stupid situation of turning to grab something and I twinged my back! Thankfully it wasn't as bad as before, but it had me worried about my training plans... What if it is so bad I can't train properly? That happened before and I tried to push through it to only end in excruciating pain and tears - not a good idea! I recently joined a Professional Networking organization called Le Tip and one of the professionals in the group is a chiropractor specializing in athletes! HECK YES!! I decided I would set up an appointment and have her look at my back.
She pairs her adjustments with Massage Therapy. I felt amazing afterwards and her solution and treatment should only take 2 weeks, whereas my previous Chiropractor there wasn't any end in sight and I saw her 3 times a week for over 6 months! I'm 24, you can't tell me that my back is THAT messed up... at least I hope not! The new Chiropractor, Dr. Cris also told me that I can continue to run and exercise to my hearts content whereas the previous one wanted me to completely stop all exercise. That ended up being the breaking point and what convinced me to stop going! So I am looking forward to working with Dr. Cris and hopefully change my opinion of Chiropractors!
Have any of you had similar experiences?
