Once more my flare ups are beginning to mount.
Seems like anytime we go through a change of seasons, I slowly get more and more flareups.
First in the legs, then the hips, then the lower back, on to the upper back, the shoulders, the collar bone, etc !!
Just lovely times!
This time, I am seeing a new physical therapist that is using techniques I havent had in a long time. About 20 years ago, I had a therapist who was in her 70's at the time.
She was so much different than others. It was this thing Myofascial release. Hard to believe those lite touches of the hand can make a difference.
So now, 2015 and I am getting the same treatment from this new therapist.. It does help... HOW and WHY I dont know. She has explained everything to me, but still.... Bottom line it does help.
I am really totally amazed about Myofascial. The whole story, how it connects to the rest of your body, how a therapist has to be specifically trained to work on that, how light touches can release so much tension. When this is all done, I will have to do some more research into Myofascial to better understand the principal and how everything is connected.
I need to be at my best soon. My daughter is getting married 10/17 and there is NOTHING that is going to slow me down, hamper me or stand in the way of probably the most perfect day.
