Re: Re: Doctor visit


My chiropractor ( *my* - I've seen her once)  said that, at this time, I
should work only on stretching that area - and no weight at all.  Maybe
eventually.
And, although back surgery has come up in these messages, it is my
impression (my opinion for myself for sure) that surgery is the very last
thing that any of us wants.
