i have a weak butt!
i went to see dr chicanowski an orthopedist at a sports medecine facility this morning because ive been experiencing some knee pain after my runs lately. noting too serious and it doesnt hurt while im running but after i stop and the next day. i smartly remembered to wear some underwear to my appointment because i knew i would be taking my pants off. turns out i didnt need to since they gave me some designer paper shorts to wear. i got all kinds of x rays and then waited around for the doctor. after i got bored snooping through the bandage drawer i laid down for some quality cell phone poker. i managed to win a few hundred thousand before dr chicanowski came in. (maybe i should quit my job and head to vegas) she made me point to where it hurts, stand in funny positions and squat awkwardly. then i laid face down on the table so she could "feel for muscle imbalances" and started pawing at my butt with both hands. at this point she officially became dr chica-wah-wah. when she finished she showed me my x rays and told me her diagnosis: my gluteus maximus muscles are weak and arent firing they way they should. now anyone who lives with me would tell you that my glutes fire all too often but who are they to argue with the good dr? she referred me to a physical therapist who specializes with runners to tell me how to work out my ass. hopefully it wont be too long before i will have sir mix a lot singing jeremy got back!
oh yeah this is my actual x-ray!
