Oh, And By the Way...

Yesterday, my back was bothering me a little. Sort of a mild ache across my middle and lower back. So, I went to see my chiropractor. He did the usual knocking and cracking and bending and then did some new kneading thing at the bottom of my rib cage. As he was doing this, he said, "This is going to be pretty tender later tonight and tomorrow".

Dear Nathan's Chiropractor,

My back is not tender. My back is not sore. My back aches like I just went 15 rounds with Evander Holyfield throwing nothing but kidney punches. Owwwwwwwwww!

Just drink lots and lots of water. Lots. :)

My chiropractor sometimes likes to press in on fluid sacs that form when I'm under stress (right at the base of my neck). When he was first finding them we went through the "Does this hurt?" routine. I finally said yes when he found the exact spot. He then pressed harder and held it for a few minutes. At which time I asked, "Did I ever say just how much that hurts?"

"Yeah, I know," he replied, and kept pressing in for a few more minutes.

I like my chiropractor, but if I could have move around I think I would have broken something in his hand at that very moment.

Hope you're feeling relief soon.
