Well I just came home from a massage. One would think that would be a good thing?? Well I got a sports massage and it hurt!! I have a bad hip and knee and shoulder and pretty well my whole left side has ached since sept. My knee I had injured in high school and I can deal with that. My hip on day I just got up and it was so sore i couldnt put any wight on it without falling over, not good. I had been going to the chiro and he helped a little, but it just wasnt healing right and I suggested massage and he thought that was a great idea, so I went. My arm was sore, but got better and now its sore again so I had him look at it again.

My hip he said no problem, we can fix that up pretty easily, just some really tight muscles and it wont be too bad.

My arm/shoulder that I thought wasnt that bad, apperently had issues. He thinks its a repetitive injury (from forking hay over the fence prolly) and I tore a muscle and it healed (so it felt better), but it healed in the wrong place. And because of that, its working like its not supposed to, so it hurts again. So now he has to remove it and get it to heal back where it should be.

Well let me say it HURTS!! I kinda was worried about that, but everone said it wouldnt be so bad, and it prolly wouldnt if I went sooner. But it will all be worth it if I can get back to normal without pain.

On a happier note, I talked my friend Linda into coming riding with me tommorow!! should be fun, I have been trying to talk her into it all winter and she finally is coming tommorow. I will get her to ride Princess and I will ride Razz.

O and since I am "Supposed" to be resting the arm and leg, I started a cross stitch:

If it turns out like the picture and I get it done on time, I may put it in the fall fair in Hanna and fulfill another resolution. Liek killing two birds with one stone, resting and working on resolutions/goals.

I hear you on the "go sooner " I have a few old injuries that have come back to bite me in the butt, so to speak. Massage is a great way to fix things up, but it takes time and a few more ouchie treatments before you are done.

Hope it works for you, I love a good massage! Only my back is beyond any help that massage could give. Sigh.

Hope you feel better soon. Being in pain all the time is just awful.I had a what they call a deep muscle massage once and it hurt so bad I'd never do it again. Instead of feeling better afterward, it felt like someone beat me with a bat!

Grey Horse, thats exactly what I felt like!!
He says its ART which is awful, then uses a laser which doesnt hurt, and i will try a few more times cause its hurting all the time so if it helps??? Even though I dont want to go again.

Hi Crystal,

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hear ya about aches and pains. I have (quite) a few years on you and can honestly say all mine are horse related, though this is only my 3rd year of having horses. What does that says about my level of horsemanship LOL?

I had a sports massage once and YEAH it hurt. I'll stick to regular ole put-me-to-sleep massage, thank you.

Hope you have a great day with your ponies.
