just do it! but you gotta know when to just stop.
If anyone hasn't heard my theory on doctors, you're in for a treat, well, not really. Just imagine the most negative thing you could hear anyone say. Then think of chiropractors and take it down that many more notches. I pride myself in actually HELPING people to get better, not worse. My money comes from people who succeed, who get healthier, who learn what their problems are and tackle them. However, my experiences with doctors shows me that they make tons of money off of keeping patients down, from the medications they can prescribe to patients whether they will actually help or not. Clients come to me all the time talking about how their chiropractor told them they could die if they took another step or their disc is going to explode if they twist even in the least... yeah I got the same spiel a couple years ago and I did some stretching and saw a good doctor and I'm all good now. Sure that chiropractor made a bit of money off of me, but never will I see them again and I learned a great lesson from it. Anyway, my point is that you have to know what you're doing, know when to keep going, know when to rest, and know which doctor to go to. My all-time favorite doctor is Dr. Joseph Marcil at SportsMED who does sports rehab, chiropractic, and hyperbaric oxygen. He's awesome and will never diagnose you with some crazy thing that doesn't exist nor try to keep cracking your back unnecessarily just to make you think he's doing something worth your money. I went there yesterday with a 2nd degree biceps femoris sprain and he did some massaging and whatnot, and I woke up today feeling much better. No worries, not working out anything but my chest and back today, but I do feel better.
