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. Suddenly, I didn’t feel comfortable with the the thought that nothing in the house had given a really good scrub down in over two years. I could no longer relax and felt that I had to do something about it.

My first day of scrubbing everything down was productive. I ached a bit by the end of the night. I started in on completing the job the next morning. Half-way through my day, I bent over to move a box, heard an odd cracking sound in my back and then I could no longer stand up. The pain was terrible. The traditional medical route didn’t fix my back over the next few months. A really nice and intelligent chiropractor did. In fact, he was able to do it in a fraction of the time that I had spent wasting time at my doctor’s office.
