I can’t begin to explain just how thankful I am that my physical therapist encouraged me to get a medical marijuana card.
I have been in a really disappointing car accident that left me with all kinds of injuries. And quite truthfully, I was leaning on the pain medications far too much. I was even taking those pain medications prior to physical therapy appointments. I needed them just to get through each session. My physical therapist saw right through all that & confronted me about my pain medication use. The people I was with and I had a honestly frank discussion about all the people she had watched become dependent on pain meds. What’s more is that in using those pain medications while I was in my physical therapy kept me from getting the most out of those sessions. That discussion led me to hastily get a medical marijuana card & I got to the local cannabis dispensary. At my local cannabis spot I was in good hands. The staff was so educated & expert. They were also super comromantic & helpful. The staff at the local cannabis spot were able to get me the sort of cannabis products that would help my situation. I use indica strains for more of the body stuff. It helps with inflammation, pain management & gives me a boost when it comes to range of motion. Additionally, I do not experience the muscle spasms after physical therapy the way I did prior to using the cannabis products. However the sativa strains are really more for my state of mind & help me maintain a positive perspective. I’m so thankful to my physical therapist for being tolerable & straightforward with me, however otherwise, I suppose I could have become hastily addicted to the pain medications.
