What's the worst thing a doctor has ever said to me? I've been REALLY lucky here. I've never had an MRI. I was just about to, as well. I had a chiropractor tell me over the summer that I was talking myself out of healing....I was actually trying to tell HIM that the adjustments weren't really making that much of a difference. And my bikram yoga teacher pushed me to do more classes, not less, if I had a herniated disc....so that was also helpful because in bikram we learn so much about how the mind limits us. Even today I could see how flexible I was after two weeks of no class...it was my mind who used to say how that was impossible....it isn't. The doctors/physical therapists/etc. who have treated me all believed that this was a problem of tight muscles....especially in my hamstrings....since learning about TMS I have totally stopped stretching outside of the yoga I do...and look at that. I'm more flexible that before. So grateful.
