Stretching, Electric Thingymagig, Anti-inflammatories, Less Stress

Alright. I think I found the solution to my tightness problems. I started seeing Dr. James Piccolino here in Miami, he's a chiro that specializes in soft tissue. We started doing a lot of stretching, and something called 'nerve flossing' which mobilizes the nerves. I asked Mr. Boeree about it and he found the term very interesting, although he calls it 'nerve mobilization'. Other than that, I used my Tru-Wave TENS electronic stimulator which seemed to calm my spasms down a bit. I also took a small dose anti-inflammatory. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, the restaurant is running smoothly and I have people doing all the jobs like they should.

Things are going fine today. Back is feeling relaxed. I'll be seeing Dr. Piccolino a few more times, he does wonders with stretches. I also have a phone consultation with Boeree soon. I'll keep you posted on that!

  1. Glad to hear things are better. My PT has me doing nerve flossing as well as something called "retlouping" which is basically nerve flossing, but instead of pumping the calf/leg, you sit with your feet against a wall, knees locked, sitting up and then you move your head back and forth and side to side to floss the spinal nerves. I can feel it in my hip on my right side where I have a bit of scar tissue and I think it has helped me. Think there is a youtube video of the technique. I would highly recommend it if you haven't tried it already.
