I Was Having Major Back Issues
I knew that I needed to see a chiropractor in Corte Madera but I was putting it off because I was just flat out scared on what I would be told. The problem I was having was definitely my back, and I did not want to have to go through a surgery and painful recuperation time like two of my aunts did. I knew that putting it off was not the answer though, and I finally made an appointment with a local chiropractor to be seen for the first time.
I was able to get some information from their website, but I was mostly going in without knowing what I was facing. Again, fear was the reason. I thought if I read too much on the website, then I might not even go through with the appointment. Well, it turns out that not reading the website is where I made my biggest mistake. If I had read it, I would have found out that chiropractors want to avoid surgery and pain pills just as much as their patients do. That is the entire purpose of having chiropractic care, to find healing in a more holistic and non intrusive manner.
I did have to go through a physical examination as well as a few imaging tests just because of family history and the location of the pain, but anything serious was quickly ruled out. My back was just reacting to years of abuse, as I have a very physical job. It was getting harder and harder to do, and I knew that I would have to find something else soon. That all changed though once I started getting adjustments at my chiropractor’s office. Because the pain was severe, I did have to go three times a week at first. I am now down to once a month. I have no back pain, and I feel incredible. I also know that I will keep my job because it is easy to do once again!
