Illness can show up on multiple levels (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) and in many ways. Most often, when we think of illness, we focus on the physical but that is not enough.
I had a new patient that came in with what seemed to be a simple back pain issue from shoveling his driveway too much. He stated that he felt he pulled a muscle because he was lifting and twisting too much. While, lifting and twisting certainly play a role in injury, I always dig deeper to see if there are other factors at play.
Questions I asked:
What I discovered was that he had been stressed out at work for months. When shovelling, he was thinking about how much he hated his work and he was even hoping for some time off. Well, his body did what he asked it to do! He got injured and got some time.
