No pain, no gain?
Responding to a call for suspicious Activity, Summerville Police spoke with a woman who said she had decided to attend a Friday yoga class, at the YMCA on Cedar Street for some extra class time.
The class went well, she told police, until “relaxation time.” She said she was in “relaxation mode” and doing fine when she heard the instructor’s voice telling her that her “shoulders needed to be off the floor for relaxation” and then the instructor proceeded to pull up on her shoulders more than was comfortable.
The woman told police she was in relaxation and had trouble responding verbally. The position, she said, was painful and uncomfortable. She said she did not have any further symptoms and left the class.
She said she had no symptoms on Saturday. She said when she woke up she felt pain in her upper back and shoulders. She told police she used ice packs and Biofuse to decrease the symptoms. She said her primary doctor was not available when she decided to go eek treatment.
She told police she went to the YMCA and filled out an incident report and was advised she would receive a call from the director. She said she got a voice message telling her to use her insurance for care. She saw her doctor and was diagnosed with severe muscle strain in her neck and shoulders.
