Yeah that's my goal. That and building lots of muscle back there with the physical therapy exercises. I'll be increasing weight slowly over time until I'm hitting muscle failure at about 14 reps.

Acupuncture flows along the body's meridian channels the "needles" and theory is that it opens up and repairs the channels allowing ones energy to flow smoothly again. You can trace the meridian the acupuncturist is following by the run of needles, and the various depths of the needle. Think of a watering grid for your back yard lawn.

I think what Delta is going through the needles are targeted directly to the bodies nerve trigger points, which are probably placed very deeply to target the trigger knots. which more than likely causes a lot of twitching and that heavy weight he experienced after words. But I'm only guessing.

My neurologist subjects me to research ie "torture", bi-annually with two huge needles hooked up to a car battery with a rheostat and a monkey with a scribe and some graph paper, So she can plot how my muscles are holding up to my episodes of paralysis. She can really get them twitching and induce some epic cramps in places you never thought possible

Are they having you do shoulder isometrics etc. as part of your program? Just a thought you may want to discuss it with them.

Oh yeah. I'm getting isometrics, resistance, traction, cardio, some convoluted stretching, some other stuff that I really don't understand at all, heat, electric stimulation and dry needling. All in the same day. Lots of fun!

Yep. If you see me flash out on somebody on shortly after lunch time, I probably read something dumb they posted while getting yanked on or shocked.

Some of the therapy is automatic stuff they hook me up to, hand me a bell and a emergency kill switch button, and leave the room. Leaving me to do nothing but peruse FTF while I'm waiting for all of the fun time to be over.

You should consider Chiropractic care if you want to keep your back healthy and moving properly. It can decrease your chances of re-injuring you back. It can also help that radicular pain you are getting from your disc.

Thats awesome Delta, Keep it up its working! I think the Human Body can truly fix almost all of itself given the right cures. The scars I wear are the worst part of most of my injuries, otherwise I heal pretty quickly.

Im kinda like you, Electrical tape and any kind of blotter material (preferably clean but not necessarily) and Im back to work in 2 minutes, I used super glue to fix me before the Dr's did!

Its odd that the tiniest thin needle can make me shake but slabbing myself with a Razor Knife or pulling a 3/4" sliver out of my hand is NBD !

Yeah that's all I did for 3 months straight after the wreck. It was a total waste. Worked great on other issues I've had in the past. But it was like throwing water on a drowning man this time.

You may just need a different doc. I definitely would not give up on it without going to at least one or two recommended practicioners.
