I Have Doctor Phobias Even when They Make Me Feel Great After Seeing Them

My wife can tell when my back is hurting even when I do not say or do anything to indicate it. She noticed it again when I was unusually quiet when we were playing cards at a friend’s house. Normally, I laugh and joke around with the rest of the folks there to a greater degree. She noticed a long time ago that I get quiet when I hurt. She called from her cell phone to make me an appointment with our Turlock chiropractor the next day before I was supposed to go to work. It is one of the million reasons of why I love her.

She knew if she asked me to make an appointment that I would put it off. She also knew if she asked me whether or not I wanted her to call that I would put it off too. I do not know for sure why I am that way about things, but she has my number. I feel instantly better after a visit to our Turlock chiropractor.

Finding a Solution to Plantar Fasciitis

Having a Phoenix chiropractor help address my plantar fasciitis was sort of an embarrassing situation. I did all the research about it online and knew that the people most likely to get this condition were runners, pregnant women, and those suffering from obesity. I wish I could say I was a runner or pregnant. I’m obese so I immediately assumed that was the reason I get this shooting pain in my heels when I wake up the morning. It’s a pain that practically hobbles you. I would totter about like an elderly person until the pain went away.

I hoped I could avoid surgery. Going under the knife scares me and it wasn’t something I wanted to endure. Continue reading Finding a Solution to Plantar Fasciitis

I Did Not Want to Have Surgery

My husband’s health insurance was not the best, mainly because it limited us on what doctors we were able to see. The one primary care physician that I was able to go to was definitely not a homeopathic type of doctor. He always wanted to run tests on everything, and surgery was definitely one of the top words in his vocabulary. Thankfully, his insurance does cover a San Diego chiropractor, and that is who I went to see when my doctor kept telling me that my only option for a pain free life was to have surgery on my back.

I had read a lot about back surgeries, and I just did not like the odds for going through one myself. I knew that it could make my pain go away, but I also knew that it could not make a bit of difference. The last factor was the scariest for me, because I knew that it could leave me in even more pain than what I was already in. I finally decided to just go see a chiropractor to get a second opinion, and it is the best decision I could have made. Continue reading I Did Not Want to Have Surgery

I Want to Keep Feeling This Good

Working from home has lots of advantages with only a few disadvantages. I can set my own hours, but I don’t get vacation days or sick days. That is okay though, because I get to work in my pajamas if I want to. Everything was going fine for me until about a month ago. I got up from my desk, and I almost fell to the ground because of a pain in my back. The pain stayed with me for two days, so I knew I needed to contact a Redding chiropractor to make an appointment.

I did not have pain anywhere else, so it just made sense to contact a chiropractor. Though I had never been to one myself, a lot of my friends had been. Continue reading I Want to Keep Feeling This Good

Why We Needed to See a Sacramento Bankruptcy Lawyer

Money started to get tight when I could no longer do my job. We had to rely on income from a secondary job to get by. We cut every corner we could, but we still had a mortgage and a car payment. Those payments remained fixed along with other things such as credit card bills. Everything was manageable when I was able to work the two jobs and my wife her two jobs. One was full time for each of us, and the other was part time. We had to see a Sacramento bankruptcy lawyer when my wife had to leave her full time job to help me.

I was out of work for a year due to complications from a chronic disease. She helped me through all of the pain and discomfort. However, the lost income was devastating. Continue reading Why We Needed to See a Sacramento Bankruptcy Lawyer

Waking Up in Pain is Not Ideal

When I woke up one morning and could not bend over to retrieve my slippers, I just attributed it to a poor night of sleep. The pain did not go away though like I thought it would that day, and I went to bed feeling even worse than I did when I woke up. I figured a good night sleep was all I needed, but I woke up the second morning in a world of pain. I went online and did a search for a chiropractor in Santa Rosa because there was no way I was going through a second day of pain.

I was able to get in that day, and everything happened pretty fast. The chiropractor did an examination on my back, and he had me bend and stretch to help him see exactly what range of motion was able to be completed. I then had X-rays done to further diagnose the issue, then the chiropractor sat me down to tell me what had happened. It was nothing dire, which I was relieved about. I did not want to have to have any kind of surgery nor did I want to get on pain medication that can be addictive. Continue reading Waking Up in Pain is Not Ideal

Pain is No Laughing Matter when It Happens to You

When I was a kid, it was common to see comedy skits on TV about people bending over and suddenly throwing their back out. Those types of skits were always good for laughs, but when you find that really happening to you in real life, it’s not amusing the least. The only thing that helped me were the five visits I had with an Orland park chiropractor after trying a high number of other things that didn’t do me any good at all. I had been crossing my fingers that I could end my pain issues because they were a monster to deal with during everyday life.

I hadn’t done any spring cleaning in my place in a long time. I was too busy working very long hours. One day, I sat down for some extremely rare relaxation time and looked around at the room that I was in. It looked sort of grubby. The walls looked sort of dirty. The carpeting had seen better days. The windows were grimy. Continue reading Pain is No Laughing Matter when It Happens to You

My Husband’s Car Accident Caused a Lot of Pain

I have never been in a car accident, so I cannot understand exactly the pain that my husband was experiencing. He was in the hospital overnight for observation, and they recommended that he see a chiropractor in Sacramento because of the pain he was feeling in his neck and back. Their imaging results did not come up with anything conclusive, and they felt that a chiropractor would be the best professional to help him with the pain and healing that he needed to happen quickly. We had never been to a chiropractor before so we had no idea which one to see.

Thankfully, one of the nurses who was tending to him heard us talk about it, and she told us about her chiropractor. She explained that she used to have a very sore back from being on her feet all day and then helping patients sit up, stand and walk. I never thought about the toll a nurse’s body takes in helping his or her patients! Anyway, she told us that she started seeing a chiropractor, and that he gives her regular adjustments.

My Chiropractor Relieves My Back Pain when It Hurts, but I Fail at Doing the Exercises So I Don’t Need to Go Back

Spring is such a wonderful time. Our community has an annual Easter Egg hunt. It has grown from just a thing a couple of neighbors did together for some neighborhood kids to a thing where a couple of people spend a few hours hiding the plastic eggs in a big field that has some trees. We have big plastic bins filled with the eggs that all have candy in them. Stooping over hiding all those treats threw my back out. I needed to see my chiropractor in Fort Myers for me to be in good order with my back for work on Monday. Can you imagine telling your boss you cannot come in because your back hurts from putting out Easter Eggs? Yeah, me neither.
