My date at the chiropractic office was interesting. What I thought was initially going to be an hour ended up being over two hours. I haven't had an adjustment in 2 1/2 years, and have been feeling pinched in the next and stiff in the lower back. Pilates doesn't bother it--rather, it feels good. However, later on in the day I get stiff and sore again. I know that because of the stress of life lately that I've been holding a lot of tension, and typically much of that gets stored around my spine. I tried out a new chiropractor, and so far I think this will work. He's close to home, and seems to be very on top of things. What he had to say made sense to me, and I learned a few things, which is always nice. You know when you're up on things somewhat when your physician/health practitioner becomes more relaxed and excited about imparting knowledge, spouting off more medical terminology, knowing you can handle it. I got more intimate with the workings of the spine and the nerves that radiate out from it, and how some of my vertebrae are either in decent alignment, or are off, and pinching my nerves, compromising other normal functions in my body.
So, that was yesterday. Tomorrow I go back for a 20 check-in and tweaking. Fine with me. I'm all for getting my spine back in to optimal health. Next is the massage. Another Artist Date idea!
So, I'm behind in my poem writing. Here are the next two prompts I haven't done yet:
