I've got this little medical problem, not serious, but annoying, so I went to a specialist. After examination, she sent me to a physical therapist.
I really like it when physical therapists take time to educate me about how things work. This one was really good. She had an anatomical model of how this particular body section works, and explained how it ties in with other parts of the body, so what I do with her should help more than one area. Bonus!
I also like it that she didn't overload me with exercises. I just have three new ones. Two I can do in bed before I even get up, and the other fits nicely at the end of a yoga routine. Or I could do them all while I lay there on my yoga mat. Either way, it's easy.
What made me really happy is that they go to physical therapy first, before considering drugs, medical devices, or surgical options. If I do my part, I should be able to avoid those.
I'm glad I'm already well into the habit of working out, so these assimilate easily. It seems like less of a big thing to add to my day.
