My job requires me to travel in the car, which you have to turn you head and you have to move. I’m able now to move without moving my whole body, (simply) turn my head. Also in my job, I work with kids age 0 to 18 and I have to lift kids sometimes, or sit on the floor with them and that was horribly painful, getting down on the floor and getting back up.
I was starting every morning with Advil. I was taking a handful a day. And then I had a prescription for muscle relaxers for when I needed them. And I’m the type of person that likes to do everything all natural. So, I was in pain enough, I was taking medication every single day for… it’s been years. And I have not had any medication for my back in over two months… not even over-the-counter. That’s been my biggest change.
I also had stopped working out. I was feeling bad and I’ve started working out again.
I was actually considering if I should have a job in a different setting just because it was painful to get up and down from the floor, to drive. Now, I love my job. I love what I do and I don’t even have to consider that.
