Torture. My back has still been giving me trouble so I tried a new treatment today: massage. Ow. Ow ow ow ow ow ow ow. I can’t believe I actually paid someone to make me feel this wretched. Don’t get me wrong; it felt great at the time and she probably did me good in the long run. It’s just that I’m having trouble seeing past the “blinding, throbbing pain” right now.

  1. I know the feeling, remember the trip to Cedar Point a few years ago when my back was out and I was going to the chiropractor the entire week before just so I could make the trip, well fast forward to this weekend, dunno how it happened but it went out again, but fortunately Cindy bought me a gift certificate for a 1 hour massage and I have been hanging on to it for just such an occasion. I sure hope this lady is good, in the mean time sitting on my vibrating/massage/heating chair pad is better than nothing.

  2. Ooh, a full hour? Man, my half-hour one left me sore for three days. You won’t be able to walk! I’m finally back to normal though and I can tell that she really worked out some of the knots. Just take some ibuprofen and don’t drink any alcohol or do anything strenuous afterwards!

  3. It doesn’t sound right that a massage is leaving you with blinding throbbing pain. ;(

    The other tip is to drink lots of water post-massage to help flush out the lactic acid.

  4. Well, the blinding pain only lasted the first night or so. I’m fine now. It was weird; I felt the soreness most whenever my back was touched. Maybe I got a little bruised in the process. (She warned me that I might be, since it was a pretty rough “remedial” massage.)
