You’ve consulted your doctor, you’ve been referred to downtown,
The specialist has seen you and has scheduled you down.
Your knee is the pits; it’s given the ghost,
A TKR’s what you need now, and you need it the most.

Ms. Rizio, your neighbour, though a little bit nosey,
She’s forever upbeat, cheery and rosy.
She’s come over to cheer you up from your downs.
She’s got some advice about how things work in this town.
“You might think what you need now is some rest,
“But before surgery rest is not best.
“You need to get active, build up your muscle,
“Go to Telma, not slowly, but now, really hustle!”
Surgery’s unpleasant, a bit scary too,
But with some physio beforehand to help you sail through,
You’ll build up some strength and get things in place
For after your post-op rehab you’ll be ready to race.
There’s a timeline, you know, of how things will go.
You start off quite slow, but will rapidly grow.
The next day after OR you’ll be up on your feet
The day nurse, though firm, is still very sweet.
Within days you’ll be discharged and then onto hospital rehab
You might even think this whole deal wasn’t so bad.
It’s true there’s still much work up ahead
But it beats the idea of being stuck on a bed.
“After your post-op hospital rehab,” says Ms. Rizio
“You’ll go back to Telma Grant, P.T. Physio.
“Regardless of age, you’re covered by OHIP, that’s right,
“Because your stay in the hospital was for overnight.”
Again, you neighbour, has hit it spot on,
(Even though you might wish she would stick to her lawn.)
You’ve got miles to go before you hang up your keys
Give Telma a call and let her help with your knees. [/read]
You’ve got a bad knee, it creaks and it moans.
Going down stairs you let out some groans.
Painkillers are one thing, surgery, another,
You need some advice, but not from your mother. Continue reading You’ve Got a Bad Knee
Too sore to go out and
Too achy with pain,
Your wazamagumpus is bent, Continue reading Your wazamagumpus is bent
This is a good article about the effectiveness of manipulation for low back pain.

Almost everyone will experience an occasional headache. However, when they recur or disrupt normal day to day life, headaches may indicate a chronic imbalance that requires intervention.
Typically, we seek relief by reaching for drugs for fast pain relief. However, common headache medication does not address the root cause, and may cause unwanted side effects if taken for an extended time.
