I know I promised you creativity, but I want to show you this:
My upper body shifted to the left...
This is the way I looked yesterday right before a session with a naprapat (a gentler kind of chiropractor). In the picture I'm standing as straight as I possibly can without forcing too much with additional pain. Wicked, eh?
I feel better today but was told to be expected to be in pain for a couple more days 'til my body has positioned itself properly. Apparently a disc in my lower back has "slid out to the side" and needs to find its way back in line.
I'm walking to work today as walking is supposed to help in massaging the disc to where it's supposed to be. I might be all painfree and straight in a couple of days! :)
