I Got Hurt Playing Hacky Sack

When any of my friends have gotten hurt in the past, a very interesting story usually accompanied the explanation of their injury. One friend broke her leg while skiing, and another had three surgeries because of a six car pile up on the Interstate. When I got hurt, it was almost embarrassing to say it was because of playing Hacky Sack. The sack was in motion for over three minutes, and I did not want to be the cause of it going out of play. The only thing that resulted though was my visit to a San Diego chiropractor after I went to keep it in play and landed flat on my back. Read more

Seeing a Chiropractor About Vitamins? Why Not?

Seeing a chiropractor in Phoenix AZ about vitamin supplementation seems ridiculous on its face. Who needs to see anyone about taking vitamins, right? Just go to the store, pick up a few bottles, and take them every day. Easy as pie it would seem. The reason I wanted to start taking them is because of age. I’m well over forty and I’m definitely feeling it. I don’t have as much energy as I used to and I started thinking maybe I’m not absorbing as many nutrients through my diet as I did when I was a young man.

I tried to go online and read up on the topic, but it was just so overwhelming. Every website visited seemed to offer contradictory information to what I found on the previous site. Read more

I Had a Pain in My Back

I used to be able to handle pain quite well. I would never see a doctor just because I was hurting unless it went on for days with no relief. I am still that way to a degree, but I will certainly see a doctor a lot sooner if it is a pain that I am concerned about. For instance, my back was hurting me when I woke up several months back. I figured I had just slept wrong or fitfully, so I just took it easy that day. However, I knew I needed to see a chiropractor in Cumming when I could not get comfortable in bed that night.

Sleeping the wrong way can cause some severe back pain, but I knew by that night that this was something different. Read more

Factory Machine Just About Ruined My Back

I work in a factory, and I started to work at a new machine a couple of months ago. I am the third person to be assigned to the machine. They actually asked me if I would work it. Two other workers begged to be transferred off of it. I thought they just had a tough time with the boring repetition of running it. Well, after having to hunt down the best of the Sacramento chiropractors for my own back, I finally figured out it was not the routine of the machine. Instead, it was how you had to bend and move a few hundred times a day or more to load it. It caused me some very bad back pain.

I was able to keep working it for two reasons. I had a great chiropractor that was doing adjustments and therapy as well as helping me exercise to build back muscles. I also suggested some changes to the ergonomics of the platform we worked from. It was way too high up for loading the machine properly. They wanted to keep a platform level with the other machines that were installed. Read more

My Grandmother Looks As Young As My Mom Now That She Had Botox

I caught my grandmother stretching the skin on her face while looking in the mirror. We were dressed to go see a play . She did not notice me at first. Then looked my way and was a bit embarrassed. She said that she has been noticing the wrinkles on her forehead and around her eyes getting more noticeable. I told her that she was very beautiful. She told me she knew that, but she was beautiful with wrinkles. My grandmother is important to me, so my husband and I paid for her to get Botox in Modesto as a gift for her birthday.

We knew that she would not go if we left it up to her. She is one of those people who sacrifices for others. I had talked to her about what kind of procedure, if any, that she wanted to do to get rid of her wrinkles. Read more
