Physical Therapy

I go back for more physical therapy tomorrow. This will be my third session. I’m not sure what I did to my back. A few of my muscles are tight and they will not loosen up.

Last week I was in so much pain I had to go to my family doc to talk about this major pain I was having coming directly from the left of my right shoulder blade. The pain was shooting up my neck, down my back, through my shoulder, and down my right arm. There are moments when my right arm will go numb.

The doc took x-rays. My spine looks great! The spacing of my bones is perfect! There really wasn’t much that my doctor could see so he’s sent me to physical therapy. After sleeping on a heating pad, 2 sessions of physical therapy, and a few pain pills later, I am feeling much better.

Not so fast! Just when I thought the pain was gone...BOOM! It came back again today. I took 2 Advil and am looking forward to seeing what we come up with again at physical therapy. They have some sort of electric stimulus therapy that they do with these round pads they attach to the areas of my back where the muscles will not relax. I wish I owned one of those machines!

Who knows? Maybe I need to see a massage therapist. All I know is I hope they figure out what my problem is so I can get back to pain-free comfort.

No matter what happens I am going back to the gym tomorrow. I have got to get back to my routine. I’ve been away for far too long. I need to keep the weight loss in check! Until they figure out what’s going on with my back I’m going to put Jillian Michaels on hold and stick to stair climbers, walking on the treadmill & incline work on the treadmill. Oh I can’t forget crunches too!
