Pounding Pain in the Pool

I was having some fun at the campus swimming pool and I pulled my back somehow. I made my way out of the pool and headed to the shower, hoping some warm water would ease the pain, but it didn’t work. In fact, I think the water made the pain a little worse. I went home and took some aspirin and laid down on a heating pad. The pad was very comforting, but I could still feel the pain, so I made arrangements to see the chiropractor in University Place the next day.

The chiropractor told me that my injury was nothing too serious, and I would be as right as rain in no time. The only downside was that I couldn’t do any swimming for the time being, which was a let down because I really wanted to hop back into the pool and do some laps. I think swimming is one of the best forms of exercise, and it’s pretty fun to do. The weightless feeling you get as the water surrounds you feels so much better than being on dry land. If I could afford to have my own personal pool, I would.

Just as the chiropractor said, my back was fine again, and I was able to resume my swimming. I didn’t exactly remember what I did to hurt my back in the first place, I was more careful with my movements in the pool. I did some stretches before hoping into the water to make myself a little more limber in my back. I’ve also been doing some yoga exercises on the side to give myself a little more flexibility. I used to be against yoga, but I think it’s a good thing for the body after trying it. It certainly puts you in some interesting poses.
