Second Trip to Chiropracter

Well I just got back from my second adjustment, and had my x-rays reviewed. What a mess. I have I believe she called it degenerative arthritis. My neck is a mess, but caught in time to reverse it. Another year it would be iffy. I broke down while in her office, after my adjustment I just started crying. I told her I'm depressed, in such pain, my husband is no help, my house is falling apart, and I'm so tired from not being able to sleep because of the pain. She came and hugged me till I could stop crying, and said that it will take a few adjustments since it's so bad, but she will work at this aggressively to stop the pain and get the arthritis under control. I go back tonight for a free adjustment, so hopefully I can sleep better tonight. She showed me pictures of my spine compared to a healthy one, and I was mortified. What a mess. I love my chiropractor, she's so empathetic, helpful, and truly cares. I also go back on Friday, and one more time next week before she leaves for Christmas vacation. If anyone doubts spinal column health is something overrated, think again. Then head to a chiropractor before it's too late. I think this was my warning to go get it taken care of. Thank God I listened.

Laurie, I think you found a caring person to help you. I'm so glad. I'd come and straighten your house for you if I lived there.

I'm glad you found someone who can help you physically, and also cares about you emotionally. When I've ever felt the way you describe I force myself to look around at people who are so much worse off--and you can always find them. It makes you appreciate your problems more. I'm thinking of you.

(((Laurie))) I know how much it can affect someone's life for sure. So glad she feels she can help you my friend.

Oh Sweetie, I'm so sorry for the pain you are going through- if I could reach through the screen and hug you I would...so consider yourself hugged, OK?

Good to hear she can help. Chiropracters scare me, but it sounds like you found a good one.

Do you still go to a chiropractor as I have used chiropractory for a while now.. but don't care for the dr. so looking for another.

Who is the one you use?? You can leave me a message at cheylynne2003@yahoo.com... If she is that good would love to know if she is accepting new patients.

Who is this miracle worker chiropractor of which you speak?

I had one but she was a bit too rough both physically and verbally... believe it or not ripley
