I stood up this morning and my back sprung a leak or something. OW!!! Hurts more when i stand and try to walk (like a duck, or so it feels). It's been feeling a bit fragile for about a week anyway so i'm not totally surprised. It seems to be "summer sandal syndrome". I wear orthotics and i can and do wear them in my sport sandals but i guess the support just isn't the same as wearing them in my sneakers. I wore the sandals for the better part of a week until i noticed the achey happening so i've been out of them mostly since then. Still, i guess the damage was done and when i stood up today, it slipped out of alignment. Sounds painful doesn't it? Well it's been worse in the past so don't worry, i'm not going to be bedridden for the weekend but i think i'll pass on a walk after work today. Luckily the chiro is downstairs so i got in at lunchtime. Different doctor, covering for Dr. M. who's on vacation but boy did he have me twisted and pulled and yanked every which way. I can feel a small bit of a difference but it will take a few days to settle down and i made another appointment for Wednesday anyway for reinforcement. The pain gods were with me too. I knew i had seen a gel pack in the kitchen at work and someone stuck it in the freezer of our little fridge. Thank you whoever did that. It's now on my back. I had thought i might go home early but we'll see. Since it doesn't hurt much sitting down i can probably last the afternoon and then go home for more ice packs.

It certainly doesn't sound like a blessing. Perhaps some form of sturdy support is required... like a black leather basque with spikes and studs? Oops..... ;)

sure hope the spikes are on the outside of the basque, elsewise she'd be getting her own acupuncture lol.

Acapuncture may just be what she needs. It's a miracle cure lol.

well what do you call a unit that puts little sticky things on the bad area and there are wires to it..and you can have a certain level of electricity going into them to stimulate the muscles? Not shock therapy..but it is a tens unit sort of thing..I can't remmeber the name they used for it. I loved it tho..:)
