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.
After running some tests and doing a physical examination, the chiropractor put together a treatment plan for me. It was pretty intense at first, because it meant that I had to get regular adjustments done at least twice a week, and I also needed to have physical therapy twice a week to help me regain the strength that I had lost. The one part of the treatment plan that I really liked was the massage therapy, which I had at least once every week or so. My back started feeling better within that first month, and I am able to do things today that I have not done in years!
