I fell from my bike directly down on to my tailbone and jarred my back, but luckily landed in the grass. I had an x-ray and it indicated that I had a compressed fracture of vertebrate #12. I was in a lot of pain the first week. Getting in and out of bed was the worst. I teach school, and after a week I went back to work. I stayed on Advil and other pain relievers for about 3 weeks. Each day I felt a bit better. Nick came to my house after about 3 weeks. He advised me of 3 stretches to complete every day. He showed me exactly how to do them, and then watched to make sure I did it correctly. I was very thankful for his guidance because he helped me to see that I was capable of doing more movement than I had thought. Before, I had been very intentional about every move and had been afraid of any stretching. I am still very cautious of lifting items and know that will take more time. I do the stretches every other day before I go for a walk. I felt I only needed one session because the advice he offered and the confidence he gave me was just what I needed to start back slowly into my normal exercise routine. Today, I am feeling much much better. I truly appreciate Nick’s professionalism, wisdom, patience, and wonderful bedside manner. – Sharon J.
