Normally, a man my age wouldn’t need to see a chiropractor in San Francisco, but I guess there are some things that even young men can experience. I had to go to the chiropractor because of a funny back injury. My girlfriend was begging me to come to her yoga class. She always said that I needed to be more flexible. Yoga didn’t seem like my kind of thing, mainly because all of the poses just looked so funny. Eventually I caved and went to her yoga class. For the first couple of minutes, things were going normally, but after a few poses, my back couldn’t take any more.
I think it was the downward dog or one of those lotus poses that broke me. I had to leave in the middle of the class, which upset my girlfriend. I was even more upset than her, because I wasted my time coming to that class and left with an injured back. I went home and tried to erase the pain with aspirin and ointments, but it wouldn’t go away, so I had to call the chiropractor. (more…)
