is the term my chiropractor used for me today. So I gave in and finally decided to go, my back has been killing me and it was like spinal pain, not just the muscles. I am so HAPPY that I went!!!
He managed to get every part of my back adjusted (for me that is a miracle, usually one area has muscles that just won't allow for it). He had to try one hip three times and he said, "god, if I don't get you adjusted on the first try right away you are like a springboard and I just bounce off of you!" It was quite funny :)
So I will enjoy the relief for a little while, although I will be willing the back pain to return tomorrow when I return to my running!
