Once upon a time, I wrote a post called Physical Therapy Sucks!
At the time, I was going through some knee issues and was prescribed PT. I lamented at how my PT made me do the same exercises at the facility that I did at home. I was annoyed that I had to drive to the facility 3xs a week and do the exact same stuff I could do at home. Oh, and pay the $20 copay too, of course.
It was basically a post of me WHINING. Which I'm allowed to do because it's my blog.
The post got a lot of comments from readers who agreed that physical therapy is not fun but it's sometimes a necessary evil of being and athlete. We all grumble when we have to do it and support each other.
Then I got some downright nasty and hilarious comments from several different people who only identified themselves as "anonymous".
Here are some of my favorite comments on that post!
(Note: I did not correct any grammar or spelling in the comments, they are presented to you as they were written.)
"$20 to get a complete and accurate diagnosis for a dysfuntional pattern that would have ended up as a hip or knee replacement 30 years from now? What a rip off please take your money and spend it on iTunes. We will be seeing you in P.T down the road anyway good luck"
"Youre not gonna see a different in a week if you spent your whole life doing something to your body. Or even the past 6 months. What do you think PTs are supposed to be, magicians? You want to do exercises at home? Tell the therapist. The only reason they have you down as three times a week is cause its on the script."
"No one is making you go to physical therapy. It is a recommendation by your MD at best. It is not mandatory. Just go for an initial eval get a treatment plan and do your shit on your own and not get better. Or just get a cortisone injection or a medrol pack and suck it up. So you had an inflamed plica, big deal. You have to exhaust conservative options (like PT) before surgery anyway. Get a clue....."
Is there a blog post you wrote a long time ago that you get flack for?
