A Sore Wrist and Immediate Pain Relief

A Sore Wrist and Immediate Pain Relief

Thanks to a Salinas chiropractor, I am no longer worrying myself to death about a wrist injury. I was outside working near my carport when a spider startled me by falling on my neck. While in the process of running around shrieking at full volume and swatting at my neck, I tripped over one of my daughter’s toys in the yard and fell right over. I broke my fall with an outstretched arm and everything seemed to be ok. I went about my business once I knew the spider was gone and didn’t think anything else about the incident until the next day.

I noticed the wrist pain when I got up and realized I’d probably sprained my wrist during the fall. Still, I thought I had nothing to worry about. Sprains aren’t that bad and usually clear up in a few days, maybe longer if it’s really bad and this didn’t feel that bad. I’ve had worse. Read the rest of this entry

Managing MS Pain with Medical Marijuana

Managing MS Pain with Medical Marijuana

Approximately six years ago I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. I was devastated by the news and had a difficult time accepting it. Through trial and error, I found a group of doctors with whom I am very comfortable with to treat me for this disease. The treatment I have received so far has somewhat slowed the disease but it is still progressively getting worse. At first, I didn’t have much pain but as the years pass by it is increasing in severity. Some days it is unbearable. My doctors suggested a Marlton medical marijuana clinic as a possible alternative to the regular regime of pain management which isn’t as effective for me anymore. They went on to tell me that this is a clinic that gives recommendations for cannabis for qualifying patients. Read the rest of this entry

My Manual Waste Management Job Really Wreaks Havoc on My Back

My Manual Waste Management Job Really Wreaks Havoc on My Back

Have your ever thought about the work of a garbage man? Well, a waste management worker? That is me. I pick up what people throw out and toss it into the back of a truck. Some routes are all automated. The driver uses a hydraulic lift to pick up the cans and dump them. Some routes are manual. That is where I come in. I ride the back of the truck and empty the cans. I actually make a decent amount of money doing this, and it is my San Leandro chiropractor that keeps me working.

I remember one incident where I was about three hours into my shift of lifting cans and bags and throwing them into the back of the truck. Read the rest of this entry

My Back Flared Up Once More

My Back Flared Up Once More

It has almost become routine, although when it started I used to really sweat it. There is a lot of things to worry about when you pick out a chiropractor actually, so I was willing to drive a little ways to go see a good one that I found. It is in fact a lady chiropractor in Carmichael CA that I first found a few years ago when I was living there. Since it would take a lot of time and effort to find another one I could trust, I just decided to get in the car and drive the forty minutes to get there. It was not that big of a deal for her really. Read the rest of this entry

Seeing the Chiropractor After a Playground Accident

Seeing the Chiropractor After a Playground Accident

I am a very active parent, and I’m always on the go. Last week I was playing with my son at the playground, and I tripped over the sidewalk and landed on my hip. At the time, it didn’t feel like anything was wrong. Yesterday, I started having a really sharp pain in that general area, so I knew that something was wrong. My wife told me to look for Peoria chiropractors located near our home who might be able to help. I immediately went online to see what I could find.

I didn’t realize that there were so many different chiropractors located near us. I thought that selecting the best person would be challenging, but it actually wasn’t very difficult. Read the rest of this entry

I Can Walk Without Pain

I Can Walk Without Pain

A chiropractor in Cary NC got me on my feet again and I couldn’t be happier. Visiting the chiropractor was the last thing I did in a long list of attempts to get my leg back in working order after living through a fairly serious automobile accident. It’s a wonder I even survived, which I think happened to an air bag and the fact that I was wearing my seat belt. Without that I fear I wouldn’t be here to worry about leg pain. Fortunately I am alive, but it meant a long path back to recovery.

Knowing what I know now, I should have went to the chiropractor immediately. After the accident I thought I would let the doctors handle it. Surely they know exactly what is required to get rid of leg pain due to an injury. I’m sad to report they apparently know nothing about it. Read the rest of this entry
