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. I did want to be able to bend over and tie my own shoes though! I also had a lot of gardening that I wanted to get done, and that is not possible if I am not able to get up and down on the ground easily enough. I was able to get an appointment for the following day since it was not an extreme emergency, but I did like that they were going to clear a spot for me if I wanted to come in that same day.
I knew I could wait at least a day though, so I went the following morning. I was not feeling any better though, and I was just not sure what was going on inside my body. Thankfully, the chiropractor who saw me was able to get to the nitty gritty of it pretty fast. He explained what chiropractic adjustments are, and then he performed one on me that day. I had to go back several times, and I swear I felt better than I had in years after my fourth one. I am going to keep going back on a somewhat regular basis so I can continue to feel this good!
