After waiting three months for my appointment with a spine specialist to see why I have a problem with sore muscles in my leg it finally happened yesterday. Checking recent xrays and after completing an exam he concluded that I have a really good physical therapist. His advice was to keep doing what I was told as far as exercises etc. and things will eventually improve.
At one point he said to bend over and touch my toes. I responded, "Can I?" He said, "I am telling you to."
Although it provided a spark of humor, I meant I didn't know it was a movement I was allowed to do since my hip surgery. Apparently I have no more excuses for not doing things.
I love it when all of my health people are on the same page and give me a green light to live my life.
