For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

Physical Therapy

Today was quite a day. Nancy took me to GA Veterinary Rehabilitation Fitness & Pain Management (GVR) as my doctor recommended. I met three very nice ladies. One was at the desk where we signed in, another was the doctor, and the third was the doctor's assistant. They did a lot of the things that they did to me at Georgia Veterinary Specialists (GVS),  yesterday.

Then the doctor's assistant gave me a laser treatment. I had to wear special glasses and so did the two ladies doing my treatment and Nancy. I was a bit skeptical, at first, but they made me feel better, and they didn't hurt me. I have to go back for a recheck, and I will get to swim.

They demonstrated exercises that Nancy and Susie will help me do (mostly stretching) until my back is better. They think I hurt myself when I jumped the fence at the nature center a week or so ago. I knew at the time it wasn't the greatest idea, but I thought I was going to lose Susie! They told me, "No more jumping." I also have some medication to take and Nancy is going to buy me some Glucosamine which is good for my joints. All in all, it was a very pleasurable experience, I must say.
