I thought that with everything going on with me and my health, and the fact that I still don't have a definite answer as to what is wrong with me, or if it will happen again, I was doing some research on Web MD, and found a very interesting article that said that if you have been to numerous doctors and had all the necessary tests, and you still don't have a diagnosis, that perhaps chiropractic treatments can help you...... huh?
Really?? So, I called my health insurance, to see if I was covered, and they said I was covered for 12 visits per calendar year, so I booked an appointment with a local chiropractor. Now, I haven't been to a Chiropractor since the 80's after a car accident left me with a bad back, so when he first adjusted me by pushing on my back.....I could loudly hear the vertebrae all popping into place, and it sounded like dominoes!! LOL
Ughhhh.....it kinda took the wind out of me, but he said that was good that they all adjusted "so nicely" and then he did my hips and neck. I am a mess people!!! I knew I would be, but this is just too funny!!
So anyway, when I went on Tuesday, I had a whole new routine.....
First I went for massage therapy, which should be nice, but isn't because I am so tight and knotted in my back, that it is sore. But the whole purpose of her massaging me, is to loosen up my back, for easier adjustment.
Next, I was told I was going for traction...... WHAT???
It wasn't anything like I thought....LOL
I was thinking being attached by the arms and legs and being stretched....seriously, that is what I thought.....
But what it was, was that I laid down on a table that has a cutout in the middle where your back is, and then they turn on a machine, and a roller type thing moves up and down your back, sometimes soft, sometimes harder, and that is also meant to loosen up your back.
Anyway, when I was done with those 2 things, the doctor took me into the adjustment room, and I laid face down on the table, as above, and he proceeded to pop my back into place again.
And my hips, and my neck.....
So I went again today, and got all massaged and tractioned and then adjusted, I am just a walking sore mess. They told me that is because they are doing a lot of work on my back, and my muscles are not used to it. Well, I believe them, because I am one sore puppy!!
Next week I go back again on Tuesday and Thursday, let's hope I am not so sore next week!!
Till next time,
