I Fell Hard on My Behind

I was out walking my dog not long ago when he got loose. He jerked the leash really hard when he spotted a rabbit, and it knocked me on my behind. I hurt when I got up, and I was so thankful when he listened to me and came right back. I knew that we were going to have to work on his obedience training some more, but all I wanted at the moment was to go home and lie down. What ended up happening was I contacted my chiropractor in Redding to see if there were any openings for that same day.

I had to walk four blocks home from where he got loose. With each block that I endured, the pain got that much worse.

We Are Done with the Move

It was pretty hectic, especially since Walter Jr had to get a bad toothache right in the middle of the move. We could not do much about it at first, but as soon as we got to Fremont we started to figure out what could be done. It turned out that one of our neighbors was a dentist in Tracy. We learned this from the people next door who actually waved him down as we were standing out in the driveway beside the moving van. I was really shocked, because it was a Sunday morning. Apparently he had nearly all of the stuff that he needed in his house, although I was wondering if he could get in trouble for this. What he did was not real dentistry though. He did not take a drill to the tooth, not there at least.

I Had Pain Almost Every Day

When I first started experiencing pain, I just attributed it to sleeping poorly. I don’t have the most comfortable mattress, so I just thought I had a bad night’s sleep. I would take a few pain pills in the morning and get on with my day, as I really did not know what else I could do about it. The bad thing though was that these days started happening more frequently, and I knew that I could not keep taking pain pills. I decided to go to a chiropractor in Cumming GA that my neighbor also sees.

The Pain is Starting to Go Away

Chronic pain is horrible. I know this because I lived with it for years. I am not the type to take a lot of pills because I saw someone very close to me become addicted to pain medication. I did not want the same thing to happen to me, so I just took it the best I could. I did try a lot of things before finally finding the answers that I needed with a chiropractor in Phoenix AZ. Before I went to his office, I had tried several things that my regular doctor suggested. I also tried acupuncture, physical therapy, hypnosis and other things, but nothing took my pain away.

I had not tried a chiropractor though, and I realized after reading about everything they do that I probably should have seen one from the moment my pain started. I felt even more confident when they started to devise a plan around me rather than giving me a standard plan that might work for some but not others.

Sudden Back Pain While Rowing

I’m part of a rowing club that practices every weekend. It’s fun to get out on the lake and just stroke with your friends. The stroking really gives the rowers a good back workout. It can also give you a good injury if you aren’t careful. This happened to me not too long ago. Everything was going fine, until I made one wrong move and felt a pain in my back that prevented me from doing any rowing. The rest of my friend rowed back to shore and took me to the Oceanside chiropractor.

Even though I had just injured my back, the chiropractor was able to take me in the same day and look at me. He had seen my injury plenty of times before from other athletes, including rowers. It was just a simple muscle sprain that would go away after a few days.

Scheduling a Facial for My Dehydrated Skin

My skin was looking a little less than perfect, so I decided to book an appointment with my dermatologist. I really like my doctor. I’ve been seeing him for a few years now, and he always knows exactly what type of treatment I need on any given day. He’s one of the best Modesto doctors I’ve ever encountered. This time around, I was fairly certain that a facial would be the best treatment for me. I was feeling like my skin was really dry and damaged. I had spent a lot of time in the sun recently, so that made a lot of sense. I was hoping that I’d be able to go in for really quick appointment and leave feeling rehydrated.

When I arrived, my Doctor greeted me with a warm reception. He asked me what I was there for, and I told him that I thought a facial might be in order. He took a look at my skin, and he said that he agreed.
