Last night, we lost power for a while around 11:30. Of course, that woke the twins, now 22 months old. As I was positioning our son for a diaper change, I felt a sharp pain on the right side of my back. I pulled part of the latissimus dorsi, right over the ribs. There was searing pain every time I moved my torso or took a breath. In the past two years, I have changed thousands of diapers, and there’s no way to estimate how many times I have lifted a child. But there it was: I injured myself during an activity I do many times a day.
And that’s how it happens. No one plans on being hurt or getting sick. Regardless of how well you take care of your body, it’s vulnerable. Acupuncture is a great protective shield. It can help our bodies reach optimal health, decreasing the risk of illness and injury. And it can help our bodies recover from illness and injury faster, kicking our immune systems into high gear, improving circulation, and much more.
