Take Care of Your Body: The Rock
WHAT ARE YOUR INJURIES?
Dwayne Johnson may be known as “The Rock,” but the action movie star revealed he is not invincible. In a recent Instagram post, he shared a long list of painful injuries he has sustained in his career as an actor and prior, as a professional wrestler and a college football player:
“Four knee surgeries. Torn quadricep off my pelvis. Torn adductor off my pelvis. Triple hernia surgery. Ruptured Achilles’ tendon. Completely shoulder reconstruction. Three low-back disc herniations. Two low-back disc ruptures.”
The 48-year old actor uploaded two photos of himself resting face-down on a massage table with acupuncture needles and electromagnetic pads. He showed his candour:
GRATEFUL FOR QUIET HEALING
“Even though I look like a wounded, passed-out drunk buffalo laying face down in prairies — can’t tell ya how grateful I am for these quiet healing / recovery moments. It’s the daily reminder, that we only have one body and we gotta take care of it,” he wrote.
If you have a nagging pain, don’t ignore it. Set aside some time for rehabilitation. Your body would thank you for it.
