One of the things I like about being the type of doctor that I am is that patients feel free to speak their mind to me. As happened today, while I was performing trigger point therapy (a highly effective but admittedly somewhat painful technique for some muscle problems), my patient said to me:
Patient: "Doc, that #$%^&! hurts!
Me: "Yeah, I know, sorry about that."
Patient: "That's your bike out front, right?"
Me: "Yeah. Rode it in this morning."
Patient: "Yeah, well, when you're done with me, I'm taking care of it. You're walking home tonight."
