I’m half way to my destination and so far, (knock on dashboard) I’ve been able to keep my usual aches and pains in check.
My physical therapist gave me 2 simple exercises to realign my spine. The pain in my arm is completely gone; sciatica issues are much improved. I also have a new support system I created for my lower back ( a swim noodle and a lumbar pillow) that helps me maintain a healthy posture profile when I drive. This time I also brought a small cooler with a few cold gel packs and these feel remarkably wonderful after about 6 hours in the car.
A super-fit fellow at the gym also recommended videos by Dr. Goodman (see below) and said his stretch routines helped him “cure” his sciatica and strengthen his spine. It’s ten minutes, once a day..
I figured I had ten minutes and who knows, maybe these are helping too..
So yeah, so far so good..👍
PS- I tuned into cable TV news at the hotel this morning to see if I’d missed anything. (We cut the cable at our home.) The answer is nope, not one thing. The powers that be at these major networks are a like a record with a deep scratch and their needle is clearly stuck way, way down in the grove.
Oh, how will I spend the money I’m not sending to them anymore- let me count the ways… HAHA!!! 😀
