My Poor Posture Caused My Headaches

I work at a computer all day, five days a week. It was not hard at first, but I could feel my body changing a bit as this went on. I was slouching more, and I knew that my posture was really suffering. I also started getting headaches, and I knew that something had to be done before I started falling apart even worse. The bad thing about the headaches is that I still had to work, so I had to find a way to deal with them. I found that way with a San Francisco Chiropractor that I went to see at the suggestion of one of my coworkers. Read More »

I Took the Long Route in Finally Getting Chiropractic Relief from Back Pain

I was just vacuuming out the back of our SUV when I felt a twinge in my back. I did not pay much attention to it at the time. I am over five decades into this life, and some things just hurt now and again. However, as the day wore on, that twinge turned into a pain that hurt worse when I bent over. It was pulling and felt like a constant cramp in my lower back. My wife suggested I go see her San Diego chiropractor. I told her that I would take a dip in the hot tub, and that should loosen it up.

It did help a bit, but then I started getting these flashes of burning pain down my left leg that went all the way to my big toe. It kind of burned and shocked. Read More »

My Daughter Was Hurt Playing Basketball

My daughter got hurt playing a game of basketball with some of her friends at the local park. She tried to walk home, but she ended up calling me to come get her because she was in a lot of pain. I took her right to the emergency room, because I had no idea if she broke something. They did X-rays there as well as a shot for the pain. They did not see any breaks, so they advised us to see either our regular doctor for followup or a chiropractor in Sacramento.

I didn’t think our primary care physician would do much to help her since the ER doctors did not find anything wrong, so I made an appointment for the following day for her to see the chiropractor that the hospital had recommended. Read More »

Looking for a Chiropractor in Bakersfield

I have just now started to look for a Bakersfield chiropractor, but only after I figured out that this is really the only way that I am going to be able to get my back fixed. I went to see a doctor about it and she sent me to see a back specialist. He messed around for a good long time and then he gave a prescription for a bottle of pain pills. I am sort of afraid of those things, because I used to work with this guy who got addicted to them and it led to all sorts of bad outcomes for him. Of course a lot of people really thought that he was abusing the pills before he got hooked on them, but that is beside the point. Read More »

A Chiropractor Took My Pain Away

I had never given San Francisco chiropractors a second thought even though I was in a lot of pain. The only reason why was because I was uneducated about the scope of their expertise. My arm is what was hurting me, so I went to an orthopedic doctor. I had broken it when I was younger, and then I fractured it again about a year ago. The doctor told me that physical therapy would help me, but I did not see a lot of success with it. He had taken X-rays to make sure there was not a break, which there wasn’t.

He basically told me that I would have to wait it out, which I did for months. He did give me a shot every couple of months when the pain became too much, and even he started to become concerned when I was still seeing him eight months later. Read More »
