Well my book on exercises for back pain and other joint pain issues is nearly complete and I’m excited to have it published. It’s nothing I ever thought about doing, but once the idea popped into my head the words started to pour out.
It never occurred to me that my Father would somehow play a role in it, but once I thought about what my Mother told me about his experience in his doctor’s office when I was a child, I became more enthusiastic about writing this book.
If you didn’t know the story here it is as told to me by my Mother many years after my Father died. When I was a kid my Father hurt his back. He went to his doctor who told him to go to bed for a week. Having three hungry boys and a wife to feed this was not an option. So he asked him about seeing a chiropractor.
These words were embedded in my head as soon as my Mother told me.
He told my Father that if he ever went to see one of ‘them’ that he could never come to his office again!
Wow!! Unfortunately, my Mother told me this after I was one of ‘them’ because it would have saved me several years searching for my career if I knew this event earlier.
Anyway the rest is history and that’s my story.
