A Muscle Knot Poem

When my back feels good,

It’s great up and down my spine.

But for months I’ve had this pain,

A change to this, was about time!

Not for relaxing but for fixing,

So an appointment with a physio I got.

She really did work her wonders,

And got rid of the bunched up knots!

Then something happened later that evening,

Lately my fingers have been frozen to the core.

I sat there and all of a sudden they felt hot and normal,

Ah, relief. Goodbye pain, no more!

My body feels like everything’s working,

As it mostly should.

Next time I’ll never ignore my aches and pains,

The physio does extremely good!


Thank you to Laura at realign for sorting my back out. Greatly appreciated!
