23 Aug Neglecting pain can be a real pain.
I recently just had my first encounter with some severe back pain that left me a bit incapacitated. I started my day as I always do by letting the dogs out and feeding them. After feeding I went to pick up Quiche and BAM I felt my back tense up and immediately dropped to my knees. BTW, I own 2 Dachshunds…which only way 16 lbs each. I took this as a sign to rest…so I spent the day going from the couch to the bed with little movement hoping by the time I woke up the next day the pain would be gone. Lo and behold, I wake up and the pain is still present and I’m unable to bend down and can only walk and sit for brief periods of time. I desperately try to get in for a massage and cannot, due to a pre-planned work trip to Seattle. So, I stop by the spa and pick up some Imbue Pain Patches..slap one on and off I go to Seattle. Fortunately, the pain patches got me through the weekend until I was able to get into the spa upon my return. I was so happy to have Matt work on me for 75 minutes because I felt like a new man afterward. I wasn’t doing cartwheels but I was 100% better than I had been in days. After receiving such immediate relief I scheduled another appointment for the next day to continue with the healing……I’m pleased to say I am well on my way to a speedy recovery. My one lesson from this episode is to try and get an appointment ASAP so the problem doesn’t get worse and I get Fast Relief!
