One of the truths that I love to share is that we are strong yet fragile. The good news is that when we are connected to our body, have flexibility and core, then recovery is better. The bad news is that it still hurts, and I knew I had to just stop completely and rest and reach out to everyone I knew about how to get back on my feet in a healthy yet moving forward direction. I want to share with you the post that I put on a mommy group that I am part of, so many wonderful responses and truths about life and healing.
I am blessed to have a wonderful friend who is a masseuse who referred me to a former nurse that runs a preventive medicine center with chiropractic and acupuncture. Amazingly what has helped the most so far was the epsom salt bath, wow, after all day in bed on Sunday, and literally having to be on hands and knees to get from point A to point B; I was able to stand erect with less pain.
Thank you so much to everyone with your good wishes, prayers, and advice,
Thank God feeling functional and feeling good that I am doing something about it.
oh great mommies please tell me your tricks, remedies, and unique approach to get back on your feet! As some of you know I’m a Yoga and Pilates teacher, Thank God strong, good genes, just turned 45, feel 25 🙂
Yesterday I wore wedge shoes, ran after kids, on my feet all day, and I think my body just said no way
This morning, while not doing much, as I was turning my back spasmed and I literally had to go to my knees and I have not really moved since. I have no history of back problems, just sometime soreness or pulled muscle.
I put ice, got my back warm, put arnica and took Advil. Any other advice? I have seven classes to teach tomorrow. Luckily I mostly instruct and have regulars who could lead.
