Still been a bit achy since my chiro appointment and today my long overdue sports massage finally came up!
As usual it was a great massage, but the thing that scares me is that it was still quite painful to lie on my back on a firm surface. Since the massage table is relatively firm, and there was some time where I was on my back for a while, I got to feel just how bad my back is. I thought that since she’d be releasing the muscles by that point I wouldn’t have been that bad.
By the end of the massage, not only did I have to get up slowly, I felt like a complete cripple. The crazy thing is I feel fine exercising and sitting down…….I just can’t lay flat on my back! Completely inconsistent with any injury I’ve had in the past.
But I guess the major thing that came out of today, is I’ve realised just how bad it is. I’ve kinda been in denial I guess, thought it was just cuz I needed a massage. But today has made me realise that there’s more going on.
At least I’ve got another chiro appointment in 2 weeks, then another massage I think the week after. Hopefully I’ll improve. Either that or it’s the slow decline through pregnancy…….ugh.
