off work but ...

can't play much poker.

My back is killin me at the moment, and sitting down kinda sux. So I took a visit to the chiropractor. Turns out my skull isn't straight (so now I can literally say my head isnt screwed on right ...), my pelvis isnt straight, i've got a bit of a curve in my spine and possibly my neck, and my liver needed to be shifted back into the right place. I guess i've always taken physical health for granted, and its only when you don't have it that you think you should have done more ....

Anyways what this means for poker, is that even though i'm home, I only seem to be able to sit for an orbit or three before getting up. So yesterday I probably played about 2 hours in total, in many tiny sessions, and eeked out a small gain on Cake mostly, while breaking pretty much even on Bodog and Interpoker. Although i've now cleared 2/3 of my Interpoker bonus for the month.

It also means sitting here typing a blog will also be brief as well as reading others. What I really need is a monitor attached to the roof so i can lie down and play ...

Current bankroll: $16,250

Please Please please do not give money to chiropractors. IMHO they are snake oil salesmen. See a good physio or sports physio. Do some research on google if you are not sure.

Most back pain is down to inflamation, loss of suppleness, scarring and obviously disc trouble etc. I know - I've been there.

You might have some or all the problems he identified - We are all physically imperfect but serviceable. your liver is out of place? pleeese.

Could be a good point. I've used two different physios in the past, and they both did provide temporary relief.

i guess i am trying the chiro to see if i can get a more permanent solution.

that being said, i could hardly move this morning, and went back to the chiro to be told i have a slipped disc.

will probably give him a few more goes to see what happens.

I'm with Laff, avoid the Chiros and get a good Physio. The Institute of Sports are a good starting point. Get well soon, mate!
