I went to my usual chiropractor after hurting my back about 20 years ago. I had experienced on and off back issues for many years prior, but quickly went back into vigorous exercise. This time the Doctor showed me my X-ray and told I had really damaged my back this time. He went on to tell me I would always have problems with the back and would need regular adjustments. I had run a 1/2 marathon that weekend and his prognosis ended my running career and playing tennis. My fear of hurting myself has seem to increase ever since. I've tried to remain active but fear of injury has seemingly never left.
