They beat the living **** out of you. Wasnt to bad, but didnt see "getting throw around" coming. Have had deep tissue work done and was expecting something similar. Wrong. Arms twisting, neck cracking, rib ****ing cage punching....and no hesitation during all of it. 0 ****s given. Dude was flying through it(im sure he has to explain it alot) and at one point told me "take a deep breath then exale". Thinking nothing of it i took the breath, began the exale, and felt like he lunged onto my back. I damn near checked my pockets to make sure i wasnt being mugged.
But dont let me scare you off, for all my bitching i do feel more flexible and my upper back feels great. No real pain except for some soreness, despite the MMA style beatdown that the actions seem to have resembled. Was only half a visit(exam and what not took up the other half) and to early to recommend it, but i plan to keep going.
Let me know how much it helps you going forward. I've always suspected I gave myself a slight hernia in my lower back doing dead lifts in high school. Mainly it's fine as long as I don't stand in one place for more than 10 minutes. But at some point I know it's going to catch up to me, so it's nice I have getting the **** kicked out of me to look forward to. Hopefully it's worth it.

"Mantis Toboggan, M.D."
Will keep posting about it. I have no doubt i wont lack for stories on the subject. And more seriously, you might consider going to a Pain Management specialist and talk to them about your back. Have worked with one the past year and it has worked wonders. Steroid injections have had the best results in my case. I believe football players get them during the week before a game when they suffer from similar injuries. Nothing intimidating about it at all, they just giant needles and charged wires.
Bunch of old ass men in here. Back pain? :feelsgoodman: to be young.
