Latent pain..happens to everyone!!
Health Tip Today: Well, as a doctor who likes to practice what he preaches, I must say that my last 2 health tips discussed injuries due to working in the yard. As proof, I did some yard work over the weekend, mostly edging and raking. I did this for two consecutive days (Sat & Sun) and for a limited time. Being right handed, the right side of my mid back and right shoulder felt some fatigue, but other than that, I was careful with bending as not to hurt my low back. Today (2 days later), I went to the gym this morning and my mid-back and posterior aspect of the right shoulder started getting tight and sore. Funny enough (duh), I couldn’t figure out why, as I hadn’t done anything to hurt it. The light bulb finally came on during my drive home, as I realized that I had been pushing an edger and raking right handed over the weekend. This is kind of humorous, as initially I couldn’t figure out why I was getting sore. It happens to the best of us, but at least I know why. I shall take a visit to my chiropractor for some treatment!!
