“Sorry I’ve missed class!” Marie is one of my students, and I hadn’t seen her in several weeks. She seemed almost apologetic when I saw her yesterday and asked how she was doing.
“I threw my back out three weeks ago,” she said.
She told me this story:
It’s weird — I’ve never had back problems. It started as a muscle spasm, and then it just went out. I’ve started seeing a chiropractor and physical therapist. They say I need more core strength, and they basically gave me the same exercises that we do here in class. I thought, “I’m paying for this? I should just go to class!”
