Thanks sam! I decided to write the post after talking to a couple of dance friends that have chronic injuries and one that mentioned an acute injury. I have spent literally thousands of dollars looking for relief from my pain and injuries. I was hoping to supply information that might save others some of the time and money it took me to figure out what components to check.... "Western" based medicine only offered surgery and physical therapy. One of which was totally unappealing and only to be considered as a last ditch effort, and the other of which did not help at all. Even with the more "holistic" approaches, it has taken me time to figure out the different factors that can contribute to chronic pain due to past injury. I hope that what I've learned can help others, because the more time that goes by in a chronic state - the more actual damage you do to your body. Why thank you doll! Of course the back side of that very same trait is what drives my dance pros nuts, I've got to figure everything out and put it in to a nice neat order....LOL!
