Around here it’s all back treatments, all the time. Today I got the results of my MRI (abnormal disc extrusion between the L4 and L5 veterbrae – but yea, no surgery needed!), had more muscle work at today’s chiro sessions — yes, that’s sessions — got cleared by my doc and chiropractor to start Pilates on Tuesday and went swimming tonight for the first time in months. After my 25-minute swim my back felt fantastic. I actually walked like a normal person out to my car, instead of using the modified Charlie Chaplin impersonation which has been my preferred means of locomotion for the past two weeks.
