I learned recently that a particular sequence of stretching and strengthening exercises would alleviate the pain in my hip.
The entire sequence of exercises, done well, takes about seven minutes. When I do them the pain subsides.
When I don’t do them the pain remains.
Some days I choose not to do them.
What a strange thing to be so human.
