I had never had a chance to go skiing before, so when my husband suggested that we take a ski trip, I was pleasantly surprised. It was a fantastic trip, and we really enjoyed ourselves. However, neither one of us is as young as we used to be. I went to a couple of chiropractors in Huntington NY after that trip to get my back back into shape because I needed it after not being physically active in so long. I have always had to sort of baby my back along, but the skiing that we did really made it worse.
I am to blame for my bad back. I have never really been careful with it. I put different stresses and strains on it all the time. All the extra weight that I had gained was not helping me either. But despite the fact that my back has been a semi-problem for some time, I ignored doing anything about it. I began to regret it over time, yet, I still did nothing to make a change. After the ski trip, I had no choice but to seek help because the pain became almost unbearable.
I don’t mean to sound like the trip that we went on was a problem. It was a lot of fun to learn how to ski for the very first time. I really wish that I could have pushed myself a little harder. I just could not do that as much as I wanted to. After we both had our initial lessons, we both chose to stick to the easier slopes so that we would not hurt ourselves. We are no longer in our 20s and 30s when it was easier to get away with pushing ourselves more. Despite that, we plan to go again next year when the winter season comes back again.
