Back Cracks

I’ve talked about how important it is to me that I take care of my back. What I failed to mention last time is that I have a cousin in Madison who’s Chiropractic business has been going strong for over a decade. She’s worked with many powerlifters and even her receptionist has a hubby who is a competitive bodybuilder. Moral of the story, she knows her stuff and understands all the work we do that can help us keep a strong back and in a flash, mess us up enough to be miserable.

I took a little roadtrip last week so I could have lunch with Cousin Stacy AND get cracked by Dr. Shropshire. And crack me she did. After taking a couple of x-rays to make sure things looked relatively good (they did), she got me on the table and went to work. She’s magic. I counted at least 8 good cracks before she even got to my neck! I felt like I could finally relax, it was glorious.

OH! Her best line of the appointment? “You have really good posture but your shoulders have a round to them, do you work on your upper body a lot?” Uhhhhhhh, yeah. Lots. Heh. If you’re in the Madison area and your back needs some good cracks, call her…she’s your gal. She’s at HealthSource of Fitchburg; Dr. Stacy Shropshire; 608-274-3809.

Shut the fuck up Donny.
