Asymetrical butt cheeks.

I was going to type “assymetrical”, but thought that might be a little overboard.

So.

Today I went to the chiropractor.  A new one.  My first chiropractic visit since The Day My Back Stood Still, (aka, total lumbar disc rupture, January 20th).  Six months ago next week.

“Nervous” would be an understatement.  “Anxiety-riddled” would be getting warmer.

Seems that my left leg is shortened due to pelvic torsion causing spinal twisting that essentially makes me head not be on straight and making one butt cheek flat whilst the other butt cheek is “rounder”.

Go ahead.  I’ll wait.

Done?

I totally get it.  I did too…”butt-gusting laughter.”  *nods*

Good news is that my middle/upper back adjusted quite well, as did my neck.  Just a gentle progression…my body is kind of going through a lot right now.

[enter collective nods of, “No shit.”, stage left]

I was also too chickenshit to have him do a lower lumbar adjustment.  He totally understood, and didn’t push in the least.  He’s excited, though, that he anticipates some really good outcome when I will eventually let him adjust that area.

It’s like anticipating some kind of “second base” with your healthcare professional.  (o.O)

So, I did it again.

I pushed through my anxiety-induced digestive paralysis to attend yet another healthcare appointment with a man I’ve never met before (and without the presence of my husband (…totally due to The Night)) to manipulate the spine which totally bitch-slapped my reality that cold-assed day in January.

HOO-AH. 😉

    I totally get it.
    I was in pretty bad shape before I walked into a Chiro after my back blew out.
    Glad you managed it!
