Slip and Fall on the Trail

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.
