The Alter-G is cool because:
*It looks like something from The Jetsons
*The shorts you wear on it are Richard Simmons awesome
*It reminds me of Ali G, and he is funny, albeit a whack job
My legs were a little off last night, but again, not as bad as my last visit. It's slowly getting back in place. My lower back, actually the back of my pelvis, was hurting yesterday, which he said is normal. When two bones begin to realign, of course there will be pressure or pain. So he confirmed that I was OK with him doing an adjustment on me, which I most certainly was. He said some people will only let their chiropractor adjust them, but I am happy to have anyone who knows how crack and twist and adjust to their heart's content. I can't put in to words what relief I felt. I could, but it would take a while and lots of cheesy analogies that nobody cares to hear.
He adjusted me, stretched me, and sent me to do my exercises. I like these exercises. They are dynamic, they challenge me, and I can see my progress each time I do them. Squats, steps, stretching, it's all glorious.
I was expecting that to be all I did, but he had more for me. Instead of waiting until Thursday, he told me I'd be running on the Alter-G last night. Did you see the heavens open? I did. Oh, it was like the sun just opened up and shone glorious joy upon us.
|This is not me. I look better. And I was smiling.|
Endorphins, how I've missed you.
No doubt, I was sore last night when I got home. I took 2 Aleve, drank some water, and went to bed. This morning, no pain, but I took 2 Aleve again, and am back to doing my two 1,000u Vitamin D's, because D is good for joint health.
I feel so good today. This is the best I've felt since before I got hurts, almost two months ago.
I am really excited, and so hopeful now. I am so pleased with this progress. I am still going to have to work hard to strengthen my hips and abs and back, but now I have the tools to do that, and do it right.
