Hi Lori... congratulations.

I don't think we know what "Physical Therapy" is over here - is it Physiotherapy (as I assumed) or something else?

You certainly look in the pink :)

James.

PS I'm in shape too! (Oh dear)

I'm not familiar with that term James?

We call it PT for short - a specialty in the medical field. You see, last February when returning from our trip to Vegas, I tried to help the cabbie and put my own suitcase in the trunk, and tore some muscle and tendons in my lower back (left side) plus a nasty stretch/tear in the ligamnets in the left glute OUCHIE! I was on some pretty harsh pain pills for almost four months - then it started to finally mend. Been working out on a treadclimer since June and feeling better when.... I re-injured my back again in October, tore the outer shell of my L4/L5 lumbar disk and re-agitated the tendons (luckily, not a deep tear so the siatic nerves were not completed wrecked (PHEW). So... I've been in excrutiating pain every day since and thought I should probably just buy stock in Advil over here, LOL.gif as my Orthopedic weeded me off the prescription pain relief in early November.

BUT.... Mind over matter as they say in my family and now even though I can still only sleep 5 hours max per night, I am recovering (or mind over matter is getting stronger). The PT for the past 8 weeks has helped, although twice she had to "re-align" my spine and once to re-align my left hip (go figure)?  Talk about raunching the leg - I thought I was Gumby for a flash there!  Speechless.gif

Now, I have a new program to start here at home and hope to continue with this plan and drop 25 pounds whilst I'm at it by next Christmas.... We shall see....

Thanks James for your inquiries!  cheer.gif

Hi Lori

I'm glad you're feeling better.  Back pain is so incapacitating.  The one time I injured my back, I went to see a chiropractor and she was brilliant.

Good luck with dropping 25 pounds by next Christmas

Hi Cleo,

Glad to hear you're done with the PT - hope you can be done with the pain, too!  :cloud9:

Good luck (and with those 25lbs).  :dance:

May I ask, as an aside, do you prefer to be addressed as Cleo or Lori? I get confused: I know some writers prefer to use their 'alter-ego' to deal with crits or distance themselves from writing that might othewise seem personal (some poetry especially can be so intense). I've been trying to address people according to how they sign off ...

Best wishes,

Fran

Hi Fran!  :rainbow:

Thanks for your well wishes too!  :costume:

It really doesn't matter to me, either one is fine. If it's an off-topic (not a crit or comment in a work, I usually go by Lori.

If I'm in 'character mode' within in work, then its usually Cleo...

Hi Lori,

I really am sorry for all the pain and trouble you've been having. As others have said backs are strange things - strong, yet frail too. Carrying all those nerves is no help, either. I really hope you can manage and then reduce that pain and sleep better. You sound very brave... men would protest much more!

========================================
For your info - (I think this is the same profession as you describe)...

From the National Health Service Careers Site (NHS = HMG's free (at point of use) health service for all citizens))...

NHS Careers: Physios

ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONALS: WHAT DOES A PHYSIOTHERAPIST DO?

Working as a Physiotherapist
Physiotherapists help and treat people of all ages with physical problems caused by illness, accident or ageing.

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which sees human movement as central to the health and well-being of individuals. Physiotherapists identify and maximise movement potential through health promotion, preventive healthcare, treatment and rehabilitation.

The core skills used by physiotherapists include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and the application of electro-physical modalities. Physiotherapists also have an appreciation of psychological, cultural and social factors which influence their clients.

The following are just a few of the areas Physiotherapists work:

Outpatients; Intensive care; Womens health; Care of the elderly; Stroke patients; Orthopaedics; Mental illness ; Learning difficulties; Occupational health; Terminally ill; Paediatrics

Many physiotherapists work within hospitals. Here they are needed in virtually every department, from general out-patients to intensive care, where round-the-clock chest physiotherapy can be vital to keep unconscious patients breathing.

Hospitals often have physiotherapy gyms, hydrotherapy and high-tech equipment so that specialist therapy can be carried out.

Todays Physiotherapist is just as likely to work in the local community as within a hospital. There is also a need for physiotherapists in many other places.
==============================================

All the best, now. James.

We all work out our own 'physical therapy' program. This is especially true of the writer who puts in several hours a day at his keyboard. The body must be cared for. I walked 40 minutes a day and have for years--out of necessity--my body craves it after three or four hours writing. To each his/her own.-Ron Price
