My sister, the gymnist

My sister has been experiencing leg pain so she went to the doctor. The doctor, predictably, told Ina that she needed to exercise but also, just so she wouldn't feel like she had wasted her time going all the day to the Doctor's to find out something that she already knew, gave her a referral for six sessions of "krankengymnastik". From German: krank=sick, gymnastik=gymnastics.

Ina's first session was a couple of days ago and she showed up promptly wearing a track-suit and tennis shoes. You know, ready for GYMNASTICS. Her physical therapist told her to lie down on a table and proceeded to give her a leg massage.
