Therapy Ups and Downs

Going to therapy, I can truthfully say
Gives perspective in a whole new way
The doctor recommended this treatment
For my neck with hopes of improvement

He begins each session with moist heat
The first time I almost went to sleep
It relaxes neck muscles that are tight
Aiding mobility especially to my right

In two sessions, my pain is decreased
Mobility and flexibility has increased
God deserves all the praise and glory
Ups and downs remain in my true story

Other problem areas have now come about
With unknown answers I need to find out
Pain in arms to my right elbow finally ended
But sensation in hands and wrists extended

The first instance may be a nerve he hit
Home exercises seem to have added to it
Maybe it is muscle related from lack of use
Some suggest carpal tunnel due to overuse

I do not even know his full qualifications
But he is not meeting all my expectations
He seems to go beyond the doctor's goals
In attempting to treat my back as a whole

I do not want to be a quitter, when I did try
I hope they will understand the reasons why
Without concrete answers, I cannot continue
All these sessions, I may have to discontinue

Carol Salter on 5/17/08

(Revised 5/20/08)

Note:  I have decided to continue with the therapy
sessions.  He is modifying his treatment plan and I
feel much more at peace now.
