I was released from physical therapy for my back on Monday. I’ve made enough progress that I’m now on the maintenance program, which means I get a monthly visit with most of the in-office work I’ve been doing. It also means that I need to keep doing stretching at home (and at work), which should prevent my back from getting as bad as it was. I’m not totally pain-free; there are still twinges. But it’s all manageable and should diminish to nothing if I stay active and pay attention to sitting posture and things like that.
I’m perfectly happy to not have the early-morning time commitment three days a week now, but the people at the clinic were just the best and I’m going to miss them all. If you’re local and have back or neck pain, I can point you in the right direction. Everyone where I went is friendly and very highly skilled at what they do.
