Back in 2015 I did Ironman Lake Placid. The race did not turn out quite like I wanted it to. I did not reach my goals and in fact, the race was quite miserable. I had some choices to make. I could continue to do the same type of training I did before, quit triathlon, or hire a coach. I decided to choose the last option.
I hired a coach and followed his training plan program for a full year. Then I raced Ironman 70.3 Steelhead (my A race). That race went much better, however I still missed my time goal. I was faster and stronger than 2015, but I still missed my goal. Fast forward to 2017 – I continued to follow my coach’s training plan, which went really well. I was much faster in all my races. The last race of the season went well and I almost placed in the top ten of my age group.
Now how does this story apply to a patient’s health? If you have, for example, lower back pain and it’s ongoing you have some choices to make. You can either do nothing about it and let it get progressively worse or you could see someone (hopefully me) and begin to work hard and make changes to improve and make your body better. There will be some ups and downs and maybe a big setback in your journey. Stick to the plan, have faith, make any necessary changes, and you will improve slowly and surely.
The correct choices in one’s life are usually the difficult ones. So choose a good chiropractic doctor (that would be me) eat your vegetables, drinks lots of water, and exercise. You will be on your way to a better body in no time.
