I have not made the best choices in life, but I finally reached a point not that long ago where I knew I had to make a change. When my best friend was diagnosed with cancer, it really changed how I look at so much in this world, including my own choices. I always took the easy way out, including with my health, but I was about to change that. The first thing I did was some research on a chiropractor in Petaluma. One of the reasons I had gotten so lax with my own health is because of the pain in my back.
It would actually stop me from doing a lot because pain can be a hard thing to overcome. Continue reading
I would see my neighbor every morning walk out onto her porch to get the newspaper and have trouble picking it up from the floor of her porch. She would hold her back at her hip and slowly bend and then slowly straighten up getting that paper. I started going over before she got up and putting the paper up on the railing. She caught me doing it one day and thanked me. She asked me if I had noticed her slowness in the mornings. I told her that I used to be the same way until a Turlock chiropractor helped me regain my ability to move better.
I was constantly restricted by various aches and pains that centered around issues with my spinal column. I hurt from my neck down to my feet when my back acted up. I had upper back pain that was worse than my lower back pain on average. However, there were mornings that I could hardly walk up the stairs to my office with a cup of coffee as it hurt bad in my hips. When the sciatic pain acted up, it burned like fire down my right leg all the way to my big toe. The chronic issue was in my upper back. It would hurt in my shoulder just at the tip of the scapula like a toothache. Continue reading
I know people go to chiropractors for all kinds of reasons. I researched my own Redding chiropractor before making an appointment there, so I was well familiar with everything that a chiropractor can do. I knew that a person playing sports and is injured will likely see a chiropractor to help speed up the healing time. I knew that pregnant women often seek out chiropractic care to help adapt to their ever changing bodies. I know that people in auto accidents especially see chiropractors because of back injuries and sore necks from whiplash.
There are even more reasons than those to see a chiropractor, but I went for a completely different reason. Continue reading
I am getting older, so I just accepted the aches and pains that I was feeling a lot more often as part of the aging process. My wife really did not comment too much about them because she was experiencing them a lot more herself. What she did tell me though was that I should see a chiropractor in Fort Myers FL because of my posture. She was worried that I was constantly hunched over, and she was concerned that about my posture not only then but for the future as well.
It is no wonder that I am always hunched over because I am always on my computer. Continue reading
I told my wife I was going to paint our house. Last time we hired professionals. This time I wanted to save, so I scraped and prepped for days. Then I went and painted the entire house in a primer to even out the paint job. Next step was the top coat. I used a brush and a roller. The brush was used the most. By the end of my project, my back was on fire every day. My shoulder hurt something awful from all the repetitive movements of painting. I went to see a chiropractor in Sacramento
I did not actually think the chiropractor would be able to help me. However, after just one visit, I felt like a new person. I had went from an office manager job to toting ladders and scraping, priming and painting my house. Continue reading
I have finally got back on the job after about eight weeks. At first I could not do anything, they would not let me leave the hospital for a week and they were really annoying me there too. They had this alarm on the floor that would go off when I got out of bed, and they would fuss at me when I got up to use the bathroom. I spent that time in the hospital and after I was going to doctors and physical therapists and a chiropractor in Cumming GA who had to get my back lined up with the way it is supposed to. Continue reading
Isabelle and I had a really great weekend. On Saturday we went biking and had a picnic in the park, then we went out to see a movie and we had a late dinner at this great Mexican restaurant. On Sunday we got up early so that we could get a parking place in Echo Canyon. Of course you have to get there before the parking lot fills up and they lock you out. We went hiking and I ended up having to see a chiropractor in Phoenix AZ, although I felt fine until I tried to get out of bed on Monday morning. We had a great hike, although at one point in the climb up the mountain I did sleep and I must have twisted my back out of shape when I scrambled to avoid going over a ledge. I did not think anything of it at the time. I got pretty excited for an instant, because there was a real danger of serious injury or even dying from really bad luck. Continue reading
I took an out of state trip for a seminar, and after the seminar was over, I spent the rest of my time having fun with Ruiz Morgan. I rented some roller skates and rode around for a while. I unexpectedly tripped and landed on my back. Other people rushed over to help me, and I told them that I was from out of town and needed to know the location of a good chiropractor in San Francisco that would be able to treat me. The people actually knew of some good ones that I could contact and gave me their information.
I was able to ride in an Uber car to the chiropractor. I had to use this because I didn’t rent a car while I was staying in San Francisco, and I didn’t want to pay for a taxi. The rates are much better, and I consider the driver to be a lot friendlier, at least given the experience I’ve had with taxi drivers. Continue reading
I had to go to the chiropractor in University Place WA a few days ago because of something that happened when I was hiking with my friends on a popular trail. It was a trail that I had been on numerous times without any problems, but this time was different. While walking, a bug started flying around my face. I swatted at the bug with my hand many times, but it wouldn’t go away. I wasn’t paying attention to where I was walking and stepped on a rock that caused me to slip and fall on my back. The bug flew away after that and when I tried to get up, I screamed out in pain.
My friends had to help me get back up and I lurched my way back down the trail and to my car. It was something that I didn’t plan on happening, and to be honest, it was pretty embarrassing, especially since it happened in front of my friends. Surprisingly, they didn’t laugh. They just gasped out in shock and horror as the fall happened. When someone falls, they normally laugh, but I guess the fall looked so bad to them that they didn’t see any need to laugh.
I was able to drive home in my car and made an appointment to see the chiropractor the first thing in the morning. My friends came over early that morning to help me get in the car and make sure that I was able to get into the building. The chiropractor gave me some treatment and told me that I wouldn’t be able to do anything to strenuous for a while. It was a disappointment, but that’s what happens when the body is injured. I’m still recovering now, but I’ll be able to go hiking on the trail again one day.
I would go up the stairs and make noise. I would make noise lifting something, and even when I got up off the couch or out of a chair. My wife said my vocabulary consisted of, “Oww,” “Ouch,” “Oh,” and a word she said she could not decipher. It was sort of a Charlie Brown, “Aaauuugh!” Those were my backache noises that were getting a lot more use since we went horseback riding a few days ago. I must have done something to my back, because it was not getting better. So, I went to see a chiropractor in Oceanside.
After an exam that did not reveal any injuries, it was determined that I probably strained some muscles and knocked my spine out of alignment enough to aggravate some nerves. I had some sciatic pain shooting down my leg along with a lower backache. I got some heat therapy that felt really good. Then they hooked those electrodes to my back to give me the muscle stimulation therapy. It feels like a buzzing in the muscles where they stick the electrodes on. Continue reading
