I hurt my back at work a couple days ago and it hasn't healed fully. I know this sounds very wuss like, but I honestly could barely get out of bed. I felt like an old man.
I went to the chiropractor and he said that I had at least severely sprained my tendons in my back. To be sure he took X-Rays and I haven't been over them with him yet. I assume he was right, but who knows. He did say that it would not change the treatment unless it was destroyed disks, which would then lead to surgery.
Okay, so I have been taking Fish Oil with Glucosamine Chondritin, and doing all these weird stretches, and going to treatment everyday. I will admit that the shocking machine and the roller make my back feel like a million bucks, but it costs about that too.
The last time I hurt my back it took me about ten days to recover. I was hoping this would speed it up so I could be back to normal. I am not, so basically I have wasted money seeing this guy? Who knows? It seems to have helped, but I really would never know unless I could reverse time and wait it out.
I am hoping tomorrow I will wake ud and a miracle will happen and I will be just fine. I doubt it, but we shall see.
So through all of this junk, I had to skip one more class. I feel like a bum. I only pay $75 a month for training, but when you miss it, you feel like you're just paying for nothing.
Oh well, we shall see. I will hopefully be back to normal once again soon, and back at it.
I have a class scheduled with three of the students tomorrow, so we shall see what happens then. I honestly can not wait. I've been waiting to get them all there so we can do Randori. I think this will be fun, but we shall see.
