So I’m back to the physio today for more work on my back. I’ve been doing my exercises over the last week quite regularly and to be honest the pain is not as bad as it has been.
Last time I was here she pushed very hard into each of the gaps in my spine which was strangely satisfying until she touched a bit that was sore, where I flew through the floor!
Hopefully it will get easier with time, because I feel very much like an old lady at times but at least I can get in & out of a chair without pain which is where I was last week!
Wonder what to expect this week!
It all started about 2 years ago on a trip to the Maldives. There I was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, snorkelling with my husband and a friend.
Now I’m not a very good swimmer at the best of times and because the tide was very strong I was finding it very hard to tread water.
Once back at the island of Hudhuranfushi & sitting in the bar, as you do, I realised my back was becoming increasing uncomfortable. The following day we went on a very bumpy speedboat ride to the capital of Male & on the night it was even worse.
Now I know this seems a little far fetched but because of these fun times my coccyx bone has been troubling me ever since, sometimes to the point where I just can’t get up off a hard chair without really wincing in pain!
Over the last few months my coccyx has not been to bad, but the base of my back & my hips have been aching like mad, like a toothache. So I went to the doctors who informed me it still could be all to do with those relaxing & fun times 2 years ago.
So I’m now going to physio in the hope that I can build up the muscles in my back! I have exercises to do 2-3 times a day which are in turn making my original coccyx problem worse…will it ever end? I hope so, as I’m sick of it now!
Lets see what happens…day 2 of physio is now!
