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. I actually worried I was having a heart attack on more than one occasion and ended up in the ER. A stress test showed no heart problems, but my upper back, left shoulder and left arm hurt a lot.
I went to my Turlock chiropractor for some intensive therapy and rehabilitation of the area to avoid any surgical exploration or needing to take pain pills or get shots. I had a shot in my shoulder of cortisone and an anesthetic, and it did absolutely nothing to relieve the pain. The medical doctors were baffled, but the chiropractor was convinced it was nerve impingement due to spinal misalignment. And that was due to 52 years of terrible posture and weak back muscles. It took several months, but I feel tremendously better. I suggested my neighbor go see my Turlock chiropractor to start the journey toward wellness.
