Adding Insult to Injury :-(

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

I saw the head PT today after my water work, and she's identified the source of my pain as being a pinched nerve at the base of my spine. The burser may be a little inflamed but the back is the primary source.

So, she treated me with heat, stretching, and ice. I still hurt but she thinks we can have me back in business soon (2 or 3 days) with me doing the treatment at home. I return on Friday (my last PT appt) and we'll see if I need more PT.

She did say it would be alright to continue upper body and light core work. Of course the water jogging, as I found out today, is a littlt challenging, but do-able with a noodle and/or water weights.

For now though, a nap sounds good.

    Oh Mary, I sorry to hear that, but maybe this will help you to feel better. I hope you enjoyed your nap! You deserve it.
