I Had to Temporarily Give Up Tennis

July 26th, 2017

I am an impatient person. I don’t like to wait for most anything, including when I have to take it easy per doctor’s orders. When I went to see a Oklahoma City chiropractor because I was just in constant pain every single day, I got some good news as well as bad news. The good news is that the chiropractor said he would be able to fix me up. The bad news is that I had to allow my body time to heal. That meant cutting back on being so active, which is something I was doing even with me not feeling so great.

I was still walking, plus I was playing tennis three times a week. I was not moving as fast, but I felt that if I stopped, I was not going to ever get back on the court. The chiropractor told me that he would help me, but I would sabotage everything he does if I continued on with all of my activities. He told me to give him just one month, and then we would see where I was at. Since he is the expert, I agreed, even though it was very hard.

Another thing he told me was to not give up hope. He already knew I was impatient, and he did not want me to stop the treatment plan because it might result in more pain before the relief came. Well, that is easier said than done, but I stuck with him. The funny part is, after four weeks, I felt incredible. I am not saying that all of my pain was gone, but a significant amount was. I knew that I would need to continue on with the treatment plan, but just seeing how much better I felt made me want to do that. I am now pain free, and I am back on the tennis courts too!
