If You're Not Man Enough To Do It Yourself..I'd be Happy to Oblige

More times than I care to count I have had a patient return to the office frustrated that they are not improving. Well,have you done the excercises I prescribed, have you tried the yoga class I ask? Umm... no doc I didn't have the time might be the reply.It's hard to get better if you are not keeping up with the whole program. Some people want an easy fix. It is a lot easier to pop a pill but this does not lead to sustained improvement.

So I challenge my athlete patients like the opening monologue from "Midnight Cowboy",
"If you're not man (or woman) enough to do it for yourself , I'd be happy to oblige!
