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. Continue reading

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

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

Natural Methods To Treat Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction is often defined as lack of ability to get and preserve a hard erection required for proper sexual activities. This health issue is very frequent in modern men especially in men over the age of 50. If you analyze the market you will see many different types of pills that promise quick solution. Viagra, Cialis, Levitra and Kamagra are some of the most popular choices.

This is a stress-free method to get your pills on your doorstep. However, we must say that there are some other ways to solve this health issue or to boost the effects of the aforementioned ED drugs. These methods are safe and used for many centuries. Obviously, we are talking about natural approach. What does this mean?

First of all, implementing specific modifications in your lifestyle and diet is one way to get rid of this problem in the long run. For instance, you can start by restricting drinking alcohol. In case you believe that you can make it – remove alcohol from your menu completely. At the same time stop smoking. This bad habit weakens the sexual function and it also brings many negative effects to your health in general. Smoking limits blood circulation in the penis and you won’t be able to achieve proper erection. Needless to say, you must stay away from recreational drugs.

There are many scientific studies that have confirmed that physical activity and exercise help men eliminate impotence. Being physically active increases the level of testosterone in the body and improves the blood circulation in the penis. Meditation, yoga and breathing techniques can also help you treat ED. What is great about these activities is the fact that you will boost your overall health too.

Many experts advise specific changes in the diet. For instance, by adding nuts, seeds and whole grains on your daily menu, you will definitely improve your condition. Stay away from spicy foods. So, besides healing sexual dysfunction, these natural remedies and methods will also help you solve some other health problems.

The process of aging makes many men start some bad habits and pay less attention to their appearance and condition. So, it is crucial to start making some small changes. By introducing these positive changes you will gain more confidence and lack of self-confidence is another cause of sexual dysfunction. You will be surprised to hear that regular daily walks can have very strong impact on your health.

Finally, many naturopaths advise the use of herbs and spices. For example, gingko is an herb that can boost blood circulation in the penis. Gingko has been used for hundreds of years for medicinal purposes. It is a natural blood thinner, it enhances muscle tone and boost blood flow. Chaste tree also brings positive effects to people suffering from erectile dysfunction. Some other herbs that are beneficial in cases like this are saw palmetto, garlic, Indian Ginseng and L-arginine.

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

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

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

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. Continue reading
