I Found a New Place Today

I Found a New Place Today

I spent a couple of weeks making sure that I had found the best apartment that I could get for me. It was hard to find a place that I could afford before I lucked into a Beverly Hills chiropractor I knew that needed a place as well. He had hit the skids with his wife, which is not hard to believe now that I have lived with him for a bit. Obviously so long as he pays his half of the rent I am not going to complain too much, but the guy never seems to clean up after himself. Read the rest of this entry

Excellent Treatment for Fibromyalgia Sufferers

Excellent Treatment for Fibromyalgia Sufferers

I wish I could remember who told me to look into Salinas chiropractors in order to treat my fibromyalgia. All I can say is I owe that person a huge debt. I first started suffering from the condition about ten years ago, but it took many years to get an official diagnosis. The symptoms of the condition are so vague as to prove highly resistant to an effective diagnosis. For me it’s mostly been a lot of pain all around my body. I also get fatigued easily. I went through many doctors and many tests before getting my diagnosis.

I’m glad it’s not Lyme disease, but I’m also unhappy because this condition has no known cure. I could suffer from it for a few more years or the rest of my life. There’s no way of knowing how long it could last. Most of my pain is around my neck, but I’ll also have it in other places as well. Read the rest of this entry

A Win in More Way Than One

A Win in More Way Than One

A day at the carnival lead to me having an unexpected visit to a chiropractor in Santa Rosa. I was with a date and we were just walking around, going on various rides and playing the carnival games. We came to one of those old dunk tank games where you have to throw balls at a target to move a platform with a person sitting on it, causing the person to fall into a tank of water below. The winner gets a prize, and I wanted to win one for my date, so I played the game. I was given three balls to play the game, and I missed with the first two balls. On my third throw, I launched a ball right at the target and hit it dead center.

The platform moved and the person fell in the tank, but in the process, I twisted a back muscle. Read the rest of this entry

Getting the Masonry Work Done in Spite of Back Pain

Getting the Masonry Work Done in Spite of Back Pain

I was building an outdoor kitchen for us. Years ago I worked in the building trades, but have now had an office job for more than a decade. Every evening after work and part of the day on Saturdays I would work on that kitchen. After digging the footer for the masonry work by hand, I needed to get to a chiropractor in Santa Barbara for some relief from my back pain. I never take pills, and I had now taken more ibuprofen in a month than I have my entire life. I wanted to finish the work I started outside at our house, but I needed my back to cooperate with me.

The chiropractor adjusted my back and used the electrical stim to help heal the muscle issues. Heat therapy and massage at the doctor’s office also helped tremendously. Read the rest of this entry

Medical Marijuana Provides Relief for Cancer Patients

Medical Marijuana Provides Relief for Cancer Patients

My father was diagnosed with cancer three months ago and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. To say it has taken a toll on his body is an understatement. He has some days when the pain is absolutely unbearable for him. The medication the doctors prescribed for him don’t seem to be working on the pain. We heard about an alternate way to manage pain in cancer patients with medical marijuana. I decided to look into it to see if it is a viable option for him. I searched the internet for Marlton medical marijuana since New Jersey has legalized it.

My curiosity was piqued even more when I came across a website for a licensed medical marijuana clinic. Read the rest of this entry

I Am Ready to Play Tennis Again

I Am Ready to Play Tennis Again

I love to play tennis even though I am not very good at it. I am not trying to play at the Wimbledon games though. I just enjoy lobbing some balls around with a few of my friends. We started off doing it to get some exercise, but it quickly grew into a fun way for the four of us to get together and just have some fun. The last time I played was nearly a month ago, and I ended up having to see a chiropractor in San Leandro because of it.

It started out as a normal day. We met at the tennis courts in the park, and we played doubles for nearly an hour. It was right at the end, and I was trying to get a point to break the tie, when I overextended myself. I knew instantly that I pushed my body too far, and I felt it mostly in my side and lower back.

Easy to Find with a Simple Search

Easy to Find with a Simple Search

While searching for a chiropractor in Cary NC to cure my long lasting back pain, I noticed something interesting. What I thought were open offices had all been closed years ago. I had been looking at an old copy of the phone books for information and saw this as my son pointed it out to me. He always tells me that no one uses the phone books anymore because the Internet is everywhere, but I always tell him that there is a use for it. I guess in the end he was right, because I had to use the Internet to find a chiropractor in the area.

It’s a good thing that my son was here to tell me to use the Internet, because I was able to find a chiropractor in a matter of minutes, when it would have taken me longer while using the phone book. All I had to do was just type what I was looking for in a search engine, and it was there for me. In the phone book, I would have needed to look at which page had chiropractors, based on businesses listed in alphabetical order. Then I had to call each one to ask about them.

I went to the chiropractor a couple of days later because I wasn’t able to go during the week while I was working. I was in and out of the chiropractor’s office before I even knew it. They told me that I would need to wear a back brace and take some medication for my back to heal, but after that, it would be healthy and the pain would be gone forever. I did exactly as they told me, and sure enough, the pain went away. I had been feeling that pain for years, and thought I would be stuck with it until I was gone.

Frozen Shoulder Can Be Quite Burdensome

Frozen Shoulder Can Be Quite Burdensome

When I was diagnosed with frozen shoulder, I had no idea what that even meant. I knew that it was painful though, because I was not able to move my arm very much at all. I could raise my hand a little bit, but there was no way I could raise my arm even a fraction of what I could before my diagnosis. My doctor is the one who diagnosed it in me, and she recommended that I see an Oklahoma City chiropractor for a full treatment plan.

She had told me that there really is no treatment that she could do for me other than surgery or physical therapy, and she had other patients who were given additional options while under chiropractic treatment. Since I did not want to go through surgery, I decided to go ahead and see what a chiropractor could do for me. I was missing the use of my arm, so I made the earliest appointment possible. I knew that this was going to require time and perseverance, and I wanted to make sure that I was under the right professional helping me to get better. Read the rest of this entry

I Went to Get Help for the Sake of My Best Friend

I Went to Get Help for the Sake of My Best Friend

I was taking my old dog to the vet when I ended up hurting my back. A Sacramento chiropractor has since helped me with my problem, and my senior dog is doing pretty well after that event, too. You see, I have always been very good at making sure that my dog gets a lot of preventive health care, and I make sure he doesn’t do things that won’t hurt him. However, I have not been as good about treating myself the same way. If my dog could talk in ways that humans could understand him, I am sure that he would tell people that I’m not a very bright man!

My dog is a Saint Bernard. That means that he is very large. I would say that he was probably about a year-and-a-half old when I stopped being able to carry him easily because he waved them up. Read the rest of this entry

There Are Ways to Feel Good if You Think Outside the Box

There Are Ways to Feel Good if You Think Outside the Box

When I got pregnant, I made the decision to have a drug-free delivery. I know that a lot of women choose to do otherwise, but I am a strong person and wanted to make sure that I didn’t go that route. So when I found myself having pregnancy-related back problems, I went to visit a chiropractor in Tracy who I have been seeing for help on and off for many years. This is because he knows how to provide pain relief without the use of prescriptions, which is perfect for someone like me who is pregnant.

I would not say that I’m a hippie, trying to live a life without a lot of unnecessary drugs is important to me. Read the rest of this entry
