Keeping My Teeth Healthy is a Lifetime Goal and Commitment

Most of my family waits until they have a problem before they see a dentist. I go to get things treated proactively to prevent those situations when I might have to see a dentist with a toothache or cracked or chipped tooth. I regularly go to a dentist in DTC to get my teeth cleaned and examined. I have only had a couple of cavities so far in my whole life. I was always meticulous about brushing and flossing even though my parents kind of left it to my siblings and I to make sure we did the routine every night before bed and in the morning before school. They did make sure I was not just wetting the toothbrush, but they did not monitor how we brushed after we learned. We did not have to floss either.

I chose to brush and floss and use a fluoride rinse. I paid attention in health class when I was little. Read more “Keeping My Teeth Healthy is a Lifetime Goal and Commitment”

It Helps Smooth the Rough Spots

Thanks to buying medical marijuana in Marlton NJ, I can say that I’m dealing with my cancer far better than I was without it. I was diagnosed with Stage III stomach cancer about two years ago.

Thanks to buying medical marijuana in Marlton NJ, I can say that I’m dealing with my cancer far better than I was without it. I was diagnosed with Stage III stomach cancer about two years ago. Needless to say, it was a devastating diagnosis. Most people don’t catch it early enough because they mistake the symptoms for more benign causes. I didn’t quite catch it as early as I would have liked, but at least it wasn’t in the final stage. They only found it because I finally went convinced that I had acid reflux that was causing an ulcer to flair up.

The doctors presented me with several options, none of them appealing. I first went through the chemotherapy and radiation treatment, which played absolute havoc on my digestive system and my throat. Then I had surgery where they removed part of my stomach after the first treatment failed to do much to arrest the cancer. Read more “It Helps Smooth the Rough Spots”

My Back is Tremendously Better After Completing My Chiropractic Treatment Plan

There’s a reason they call it chronic pain. It is not just a bout with hurt, it is a long-lasting relationship with it. It may come and go in and out of your life, but it seems to always make an unwelcome visit at the worst times. My back pain was like that. The kids and my wife referred to it as dad “throwing his back out,” and that was followed by the word “again.” Now that I see a San Leandro chiropractor for the problem, there is no “again.” I am very happy about that.

Instead of just going in for an adjustment or two, I went and followed the complete treatment plan when my back was at its worst. I got immediate relief from the adjustments, but then the pain would keep on coming back again and again. Read more “My Back is Tremendously Better After Completing My Chiropractic Treatment Plan”

I Got Rear Ended by a Drunk Driver

It was just another day for me honestly, I had to get up early and go to work. I did not realize that I was about to meet about two dozen doctors and a Petaluma chiropractor as well. The auditors were coming and I needed to catch up so that I could make sure they did not find anything that they were not supposed to find. At any rate I was driving to work the same way as always, the only difference being that it was still dark and apparently the drunks were still out. I was at a light and he just rammed me full speed from behind. Read more “I Got Rear Ended by a Drunk Driver”

Living in a Different Part of the Country Has Helped Me to Become Healthier

Sacramento chiropractors are pretty popular in California because people here seem to really understand that not everything has to be helped with prescriptions or surgery. This was not something that I really understood until I moved here. I have become a healthier person overall since I have moved to this part of the country. I initially thought that chiropractic help was something that you would get once or twice and that would be it. However, I now go and get help every month from my chiropractor. I have learned that to keep a healthy body, you need to care for it on an ongoing basis.

I grew up on the east coast of our country, where a lot of the year is spent in a very cold climate. People do not spend a lot of time outdoors staying healthy with physical fitness there because of the constant cold weather. I would say that I bundled up in heavy winter clothing about 6 months out of every year when I lived there. Then, another 3 months of the year feels very much like autumn weather. After that, we had a very short summer season. It leaves little time to get outdoors for walking, running, swimming or a lot of other things that keep people fit and healthy. That changed for me when I move to California.

The weather is great all year round in my new state. There are very few cold days. I do not miss them at all. I get out and do things now every week. I really enjoy getting sunlight and taking care of myself by participating in sports and other things that go on here. I love waking up on a Saturday morning and seeing many of my neighbors outside walkng or running. I even take my kids and my dogs on many of my own runs.

I Am a Believer in Chiropractic Care Now

I know most people take their bodies for granted. Sure, a lot of people watch what they eat and even work out to stay in decent shape, but that should only be a part of the plan rather than the entire plan. The first time I saw my chiropractor in Huntington NY, it was because I had fallen down a flight of steps. My back was causing me a world of pain, and I knew that I needed to see a specialist. Since it was my back causing me all the pain, it only made sense to see a chiropractor.

I had never been to one before, so I went online to find one that I would be comfortable with. I looked at several different chiropractic websites, and choosing Waterfront Chiropractic was actually a very easy decision. Read more “I Am a Believer in Chiropractic Care Now”

I Wanted to Feel Good Again

I learned something when I first started looking for a chiropractor in Redding. I was doing this online because I just did not have time to contact each chiropractic center and ask questions to determine if they were the right one for me. I looked up all the local ones to me, and I went to their individual websites to see if I could find the one I wanted this way. When I saw Shasta Spine Specialists, I knew they were the ones for me. What I learned came from this site too.

Most kids fall down quite a few times before they learn to keep their balance. Even after they learn about balance, some kids and teens still take a tumble now and again. Read more “I Wanted to Feel Good Again”

Chiropractic Care is Now Regular for Me

I kept seeing advertisements for a San Diego chiropractor, and that really confused me. I knew that they treated people for things like wrecks and accidents, but these ads were talking about general health and well being visits. I had no idea that a person went to a chiropractor when they were not even hurting, and I wanted to find out more. I went to their website, and I was very surprised by everything that I read there. I knew that they were doctors who worked mainly with the spine area, but I had no idea just how far their specialties extended.

One thing that really settled deep within me was a question that they posed on their site. It was, when should a person go to see a chiropractor? And, the answer was very simple. Read more “Chiropractic Care is Now Regular for Me”

I Want to Maintain This Good Feeling

Sometimes when you have a new pain, you can just kind of tell if it is one that will just take a couple of days to feel better or if it is one where you need to get to a doctor right away. The pain I woke up with the other day was kind of in between those two, so I decided to wait at least a day to see if it did go away on its own. When I was not even able to bend over to tie my own shoelaces, I contacted a chiropractor in Phoenix AZ to see about coming in.

I am retired, so I didn’t need to be in top shape so I could go to work. Read more “I Want to Maintain This Good Feeling”

The Pressure We Place on Our Backs

Lower back pain affects nearly 31 million Americans, especially those over 65. As most Americans have lived challenging lives due to the amount of physical labor that many of them were employed to do. I work at an Amazon Fulfillment Center as a Picker. I walk up to ten to fifteen miles a day bending and reaching for items that shoppers have bought on the website. All this constant motion has already begun to put a serious strain on my lower and upper back. That’s how and why I found Cumming Chiropractor – after only six months of working I was afraid for my back.

I’m beginning to look toward the future because of this. Am I going to be able to handle this kind of work in five years? Ten years? Is it going to be worth it to actually continue working in such a physically demanding profession? The money is actually very good but I don’t know if my body is going to actually be able to cope with the amount of stress and pressures that I’ll be forcing it through.
