The right health care professionals make all the difference

Thursday, October 14, 2010

I am a nurse, but this is not about me. I recently went to a new doctor. I have had back pain and injuries all of my adult life. I went to this new doctor and he diagnosed me with a mild case of scoliosis and sent me to Physcial Therapy. My physical therapist is wonderful. I went for my forst visit Monday. She actually made the pain lessen, but more than that she took the time to explain that alot of the things I had done , ie my hysterectomy and the years of lifting and bending made my back so weak it has actually started to atrophy. Scary. Also , I am unbalanced on the left side. So now I can see that i will have to exercise for the rest of my life, talk about motivation, or my back will go back to hurting. I still have a long way to go, but now I am pointed in the right direction
