Sore back

Last July I hurt my hip and was in a lot of pain. I don't know how I did it but it keep getting worse and worse. I last about 6 months before my Mom insisted that I go to a chriopractor. Well it turned out my right hip was out. The chriopractor popped it back in (I literally heard a pop, I hate that sound) and I was free. I could bend down, I could sit at my desk without pain. It was amazing how long I went with a sore hip. Well, on the weekend I could feel my hip was out because I couldn't bend like before, sitting was painful. So, I made an appointment for the Chiropractor yesterday and he popped my hip back. But this time both hips were out so I had to hear two popping sounds. I feel so good other than the soreness.

I think what took me so long to go to the Chiropractor in the beginning is because I have never had any back troubles and was proud of that fact. I just can't face that I am going to have this recurring problem for the rest of my life. Well I have learned my lesson, exercise is good but don't push your body to the point that you damage it. It's all good if you have a healthy heart at 65 but if you can't walk because you have wrecked your back what good is it.

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that no excerise is the solution. I don't think I could live without excerise but watch and listen to your body. Stretch correctly. Change your routine and try different machines, if one hurts afterwards, you can try something different.

And no, I am not going to stick to walking because that is boring to me, it's may be good for some people but it just doesn't get my heart rate up enough for me to feel like I accomplished something.
