It’s been almost a month since I saw the orthopedic surgeon and was given my marching orders for physical therapy. I had flipped those orders over on my desk and hadn’t looked at them once since then. This morning for some reason I felt like reading the prescription again; I’ll admit, I never really read it too carefully.
I don’t know what some of this stuff is, sure. But we determined I have a weak core and I need to strengthen it to help offset the symptoms of scoliosis. Along with the above, he noted “hamstring stretching” and “abdominal and paraspinal muscle strengthening” and some other thing. Fine. But why in the hell do I need “AEROBIC TRAINING”?
Whoa whoa whoa.
Wait a minute. Hold on now.
You have to be kidding me – do I look like I’m that out of shape?
