When Your Back Gets the Boot
Don’t let your back get the BOOT! So, you woke this morning, tried to get out of bed only to discover your back is completely locked up. It’s like a steel parking boot has been slapped on it, rendering your whole body UN-drive-able! Maybe you should have paid more attention to the warning signs that were piling up over the past several months. Like unpaid parking tickets piling up, eventually if not dealt with, your tire will be booted and your car will not be able to be driven. Don’t let your back get booted and become unable to move!
IT WILL GO AWAY…
It will go away, famous last words. Neglect is the common enemy of normal function. That little twinge in your back you felt a few days ago, the morning soreness you’ve been getting more often, think of them as “parking tickets”. These tickets are warning you to get in compliance with the laws of spinal maintenance or pay a heftier penalty down the road. When you continue to ignore ticket after ticket, don’t be surprised if one day you find your entire spine seized and locked out of commission. That’s what happen when subluxations go unchecked and uncorrected.
