I Got in a Car Wreck

Wednesday Aug 16, 2017

I was just passing through Iowa on my way South to Kansas City from Minneapolis. In fact I had stopped on a city street in Peoria outside of a print shop. I was looking at the map on my phone trying to figure out how to get back to the highway. I had made a wrong turn and I did not know how to recover. At any rate I heard the car tires squealing and I looked back just as this car was trying to take a curve at high speed. I had to find Peoria chiropractors to fix my back after they let me leave the hospital. The guy in the car was apparently ‘borrowing’ his girlfriend’s car and driving it without a license. Right behind there two police cars. Read the rest of this entry »

I Needed to Lose Weight

Friday Jun 2, 2017

I have wanted to lose weight for a very long time. I was skinny as a kid, but I fell into the freshman trap when I entered college. I gained ten pounds my first year away from home, and I was 30 pounds heavier by the time I graduated. I always figured I would start dieting tomorrow, but tomorrow never came. I knew I had to do something though when I started sending out resumes for work. I wanted to look my best, and after reading some Nutrisystem weight loss reviews, I finally felt like I would be able to do just that. Read the rest of this entry »

A Crazy Event That I Couldn’t Avoid

Wednesday Apr 19, 2017

I was shopping in the grocery store one day and a couple of people got into a fight. They seemingly started arguing over nothing and started getting violent with each other. I wanted no part of their bout, so I tried to move out of the way, but I didn’t make it in time. They pushed me into the side of one of the aisles and I hit my back. I fell over and was able to get up again, but I had a pain so great that I needed a Huntington chiropractor to take care of it.

The chiropractor told me that I had some bruising and muscle tearing, but I was lucky that I didn’t have any broken bones. I was given medicine to take care of the pain and given orders to rest while my back was healing. I’m retired, so I don’t have to worry about going in for work, but I do like to live an active lifestyle, and having to rest due to a back injury did put a halt to that lifestyle. I was supposed to go roller blading the next day, but I couldn’t because of my injury. Instead I was sitting at home, watching television from my bed.

My back did eventually heal and I was able to resume my active life. When I went back to the same grocery store as before, I looked around to make sure that those two guys who got into a fight weren’t there again. The store manager told me that he banned the two men from coming there, which was a relief. If those two men want to fight each other, they can go do it in someone else’s grocery store and save the rest of us the pain. I hope no one else trys to follow their lead.

How Do You Find a Chiropractor

Tuesday Apr 18, 2017

It was a pretty rough thing when I woke up that morning and I could hardly move at all. That was something that was related to the car accident that I had gotten into a few years ago when I was living in Marin County, CA. The accident did not seem that bad to begin with, but in the end I began to have a lot of serious back problems. I eventually went to see a chiropractor in San Francisco, but it took me quite some time to figure out which one I wanted to trust the job to. It was a simple thing to go on the web and figure out that there can be some less than ideal outcomes. It is easy to figure out why that can happen when you look at the methodology of the chiropractor. They start out on the idea that your back bones are not in the correct places relative to each other and they have to move them to get them in place. Read the rest of this entry »

What I Do for Work Fuels My Happiness

Saturday Jan 7, 2017

As a chiropractor in Philadelphia PA who has been practicing for over 20 years, I am proud to say that I have helped thousands of people to feel better. I believe it is an honor to help others who come to me after they find themselves struggling to feel better in life after weeks or months of no help elsewhere. Often, a patient will come to me for the first time not knowing what to expect. But when they leave, they often leave with a smile on their face. Some feel better right away, and others may simply need a few more appointments for that to happen. I do my best to get everyone back to feeling great again.

The thought of so many years in school to become a medical doctor did not appeal to me. Helping others appealed to me very much. But many years stuck with my nose in a book did not. Read the rest of this entry »

Finally Feeling Normal Again After Getting Help from My Pleasanton Chiropractor

Friday Dec 2, 2016

I have heard that an army marches on its feet, so you need to keep your feet in great shape. Yes, that is true. However, you need to keep your back in shape too. A backache can ruin you for doing anything. Take it from me, if your back is hurting, you cannot even enjoy sitting on the couch watching TV. I was not comfortable standing, sitting, walking or anything. I went to a Pleasanton chiropractor to get some relief from my constant back pain. I did not remember doing anything in particular to cause it. My back just would hurt. Some days were better than others, but no day was perfect. Read the rest of this entry »

I Am No Longer a Chiropractic Skeptic

Thursday Dec 1, 2016

I feel really bad for my opinion of chiropractors before I started seeing one on a regular basis. I honestly thought that they didn’t do anything a person could not do on their own at home, but I was so wrong. When I started having problems with my first pregnancy, my obstetrician told me I should see a chiropractor in Vancouver WA to help me with the pain that I was experiencing in my lower back. She must have noticed the quick look on my face, because she told me that a lot of her patients have found a lot of relief throughout their pregnancies thanks to a chiropractor.

I do trust my doctor, and I knew she would not tell me this just to drum up business for another medical professional. Read the rest of this entry »

Good Chiropractor Offices for Sacramento

Thursday Dec 1, 2016

I am going to have to have to see a chiropractor, because I threw out my back, and unfortunately I am not going to be able to see the one that I normally go see. I did not envision myself ending up in a situation like this, but here I am. I am visiting some family in Sacramento at the moment, and so I need to find a good Sacramento chiropractic office to schedule an appointment with, and I really hope that they will accept my insurance, but I do not really think so, since it is out of the state. I know that sometimes if you are out of state and you get sick or what have, you can use your insurance in spite of the fact that you are not in your coverage area, but I would not think that something like that would apply to the situation I am in where I am going to see a chiropractor.

I asked some of my family members, that I am visiting, if any of them knew of any good chirporactors in the area, but I guess none of my family members here have ever gone to see a chiropractor bfore, which I find to be kind of strange. I was hoping to get some advice from them on who I should visit, but since that is not a possibility, I guess I will have to figure it out on my own. I definitely want to visit an office that has a good reputation, and of course, the most important thing is that I find a chiropractor office that has availability to see me within the next day. I cannot wait longer than that, and my flight back home is in 3 days from now. I know that it would be awful to get on a plane without getting my back fixed.

Introducing My Friend with an Aching Back to My Campbell Chiropractor

Thursday Dec 1, 2016

I was out hiking with a friend of mine. We were taking some pictures. He decided to shoot some video and was looking through his viewfinder and walking. We were on a slight incline of some loose gravel over packed dirt and stone. He slid about six inches with one foot. He corrected to avoid falling with his expensive camera. He did not fall, but he said he felt an odd pain in his lower back and hip. By the time we made it back to the parking area, his back and leg hurt enough to visit my Campbell chiropractor right away.

He had never been to a chiropractor before, and he did not think they would be able to help him at all. I told him that if they could not help, then I would pay his copay for the visit. The doctor took his history and did an examination. Then he asked about the symptoms in greater detail. My friend said he felt a burning pain going down over the right side of his buttocks and down his leg all the way to his big toe. Read the rest of this entry »

A Car Accident Can Be Painful!

Wednesday Nov 30, 2016

I was in a pretty bad wreck not long ago. No one died, but three cars were completely totaled as a result. My husband was driving, and a car just crossed the median and sideswiped us as well as the car behind us. We were both wearing seat belts, which is what saved all of our lives actually. We were taken to the hospital to be examined, and amazingly there were no broken bones either. I had a killer headache though, and the emergency room doctor told me that I should probably see a chiropractor in Santa Rosa CA for help with that.

He told me that it could go away on its own, but it was still a good idea to go see a chiropractor. He gave me some pain pills and sent my husband and myself on our way. Read the rest of this entry »

My Husband Had Chronic Pain

Monday Nov 21, 2016

My husband had been suffering with shoulder pain for quite a while. The sad part about that, other than the pain itself, is that there were options available to us that we were not fully aware of. When someone at his work asked him if he had been to a Redding chiropractor for any kind of treatment, they were already expecting his answer of no. It was obvious that he hadn’t to her, because his coworker knew that he probably would not have been at that level of pain still if he had been to a chiropractor for any type of treatment.

She was that confident that a chiropractor would be able to help my husband, and that spoke volumes to us. Read the rest of this entry »

Just Got Back on the Job

Monday Nov 21, 2016

It has taken me about a month and a half to get back to being able to do most of the things that I want to do, although I still have some pain. Right now I am seeing a chiropractor in San Jose about the stiffness in my back. Apparently when I got in this collision some of the vertebra in my back got jolted out of their proper position. It was a really scary event. I was going into work real early that morning, because we had to catch up on some stuff and I had to be some place that night. At any rate I was about a mile or so from work when suddenly this car started to cross the center line. He was coming right at me and I did my best to get out of his way. Of course the other car still side swiped me and there must have been another car riding my bumper. Read the rest of this entry »

Argan Oil Makes Me Look Better

Monday Nov 21, 2016

When I hear about a miracle pill or cream, I usually don’t believe the hype surrounding it. Every now and again though, I will come across something that truly does deliver on what it promises. That was the case when I first heard about argan oil for hair. When my hair stylist recommended that I look into it, I did just that because I trust her opinions when it comes to hair care products.

Getting My Sister to Go for a Facelift Procedure Saved Her Life

Sunday Nov 20, 2016

I was considering all my options for a facelift. I liked the idea of the one they call a vampire facelift over the surgical methods. I went to the best dermatologist in Las Vegas to get one. They use your own blood in the procedure. That is how it got its name. They take blood out of your arm, separate it, and then inject it under the skin of your face. They can use fillers too. This fills in crows feet and other areas, and your skin reacts and heals the area. Since it is your blood, there is no worry about an allergic reaction.

I am very glad I went for other reasons too. Read the rest of this entry »

Learning About Vital CoQ10 Supplements

Tuesday Jan 26, 2016

When my doctor first told me about CoQ10, I knew I needed to find out more. I am just fascinated by the different things that our bodies do, so I naturally wanted to find out more about this thing that is naturally made in our bodies and helps with everything from more energy and less fatigue to helping with some medical conditions. I devoured so much information on it, and I knew that I had to find the best CoQ10 supplement so I could start taking it myself. I know that supplements can be really good when they are manufactured by a reputable company, but I also know that some companies take shortcuts because they only care about the bottom line.

How Do You Deal with Foot Fungus

Monday Feb 15, 2016

I have started to wonder how safe it is use the various treatments that they have for sale on the internet. In fact I have been reading that some of them use pretty drastic methods to achieve the result that you desire, which is obviously to get rid of nail fungus. That is not at all an easy thing to achieve and you have to do a real good job of doing your homework before you settle on a solution to try. I have been checking out a nail fungus treatment by zetaclear which appears to be a fairly good option based upon what I have been able to determine if it is a really going to be able to do the job, but with no really undesirable effects. Of course if you use something that is really aggressive it is going to be able to burn the foot fungus off, but there is not going to be no consequences. Read the rest of this entry »

I Don’t Feel the Urge to Cheat

Thursday Feb 18, 2016

The worst thing about trying to lose weight is returning back to where you’ve started. Whenever I try to lose weight, I always make a mistake that negates my progress and sends me right back to the beginning. Food tastes so good, and I get carried away with it and cheat on my diet plans. I know I’m not alone in this, because I’ve seen many people who cheat on their diets and walk right back into the gym, looking like they haven’t done any exercise at all. The new Medifast diet plans that I’ve used have given me a way to get around my set backs.

The foods in the diet plan consist of specially made foods that are nutrient rich and low in fat and calories without sacrificing flavor. The shakes are my favorite, because they can be used as a meal replacement, and they taste so great. I thought I would have to stick to rice cakes and salads for my diet. I never imagined that I would be able to eat things like pancakes. I love to take a double chocolate shake and mix it with a frozen banana, a little honey, and some berries in the blender to make a perfect smoothie.

I can still eat lean meats with my diet plan too. There are a lot of meals you can make with fish and chicken, and you can buy these meats for an affordable price. I’ve really learned how to cook up some creative meals that I normally wouldn’t have using the diet plan. I made an excellent stir fry using chicken and shrimp, broccoli, carrots, beans, and some brown rice. Cooking Asian cuisine isn’t something that I’ve been particularly great at, but now I feel like I could do it all the time. I’m also going to experiment with some Mediterranean meals using the diet plan.

I Wanted to Have Bigger Breasts

Tuesday May 17, 2016

I have heard so many times that beauty is only skin deep. While I do believe that myself, it would still be nice to feel beautiful on the outside. I was not blessed with a large bust, and this has always been something that has bothered me. I have heard my friends who have bigger breasts tell me I am lucky to not have to worry about wearing bras, but I don’t think they really think that since they enhance what they have every chance they can. I finally found a breast enhancement cream that changed the way that I felt about myself though.

I had never put much faith into things like this because I honestly thought they were all gimmicks. Read the rest of this entry »

I Just Found a New Job

Thursday Sep 15, 2016

I have just now started my new job, although it is not something that I was really looking for and I am still looking to find a job that meets my qualifications. I got the tip from this friend of mine. He had to go see his Chicago chiropractors to get his back worked on. That is something that happens to him every so often and it is just the price that he paid for getting to go to college for free on a football scholarship. It is not that surprising really, because it is a really tough game and that scholarship is obviously not for free. You have to figure out what is going to fix it. At any rate when he got there he noticed a sign in one of the offices next door to the chiropractors and he told me about it. They had not really advertised the job yet and when I got there they had not interviewed anyone else. Read the rest of this entry »

I Try Not to Get Myself Hurt at All Times

Friday Feb 10, 2017

I like to stay out of trouble because I know that getting into trouble on purpose can be a big risk. It’s not that I live my life in fear, but I know that hurting myself unnecessarily because of my own denial about risk can bring about long-term chronic pain. But even though I’m careful, I still needed to see a chiropractor in Cumming GA over the last few months because I was simply walking in a parking lot and fell. Anything can happen at any moment, even if you are not cavalier about risky hobbies or daily events. Thankfully, they are people such as chiropractors, who can help when you need them desperately.

I work out of my car on an almost daily basis. This means that I leave the house every morning after I have a cup of coffee and my breakfast, and I drive my first client of the day. When I’m done working at that client place of business, I then drive to the next client. I do this throughout the day and tell my work is done. I also need this rain or shine. It does not matter if there’s a heavy storm outside or some other type of inclement weather. if a customer needs me, I need to have the ability to get there to help him out. I have to try to be careful when I’m out in bad weather.

On the day that I hurt myself, it was raining out. I slipped in the parking lot. I landed on my back, and that hurt immediately. I figured that pain would go away, but it went the opposite way and intensified over the following weeks. I knew that I needed to see a chiropractor to help put an end to that as quickly as possible.

My Chiropractor Did What Two Different Physicians Could Not

Friday Dec 2, 2016

When two different doctors said that they couldn’t do much for me, it was a Pleasanton chiropractor who did for me what the first two physicians could not. What a welcome relief it was to learn that there was no reason for me to continue putting up with pain every day. I am officially a convert to chiropractic help. Having never dealt with it before, I hadn’t given any thought to it until someone pointed out to me to go get help from someone who could make things right for me once again. It’s a shame I didn’t know much sooner, but I’m just grateful that I do now.

I had a bad car accident two years ago. A mother was taking a walk with her son, and her son was riding a bike. She was not paying attention to him, and he was weaving back and forth as he rode alongside her. I was watching him carefully, and I even made sure to steer my car off to the side a bit so that I would not hit him if he did anything silly. Unfortunately, he did get silly and he suddenly turned his bike right into the path of my car. Read the rest of this entry »

I Hurt My Back While Moving Furniture

Thursday Dec 1, 2016

When my husband and I moved, we debated on whether to rent a truck and move ourselves or hire a professional moving company. We decided to save some money and just tackle it ourselves, which turned out to be a very bad idea. We are both in great shape, so we figured it would not be difficult to move boxes and furniture, especially since we had a dolly to help us. Well, we got moved, but we also had to hire help and find a Sacramento chiropractor by the time we were done.

I was lifting one end of the couch to carry it into our new house, and I guess I picked it up the wrong way. I knew instantly that something had happened in my back. I was in a lot of pain, and I ended up using a heating pad on it for two days. My husband hired some local teens to help finish moving everything into the house because I couldn’t even lift a small box at that point. Read the rest of this entry »

Shining a Light on Trouble

Monday Nov 21, 2016

On a whim, I bought a tactical flashlight from an online store because it looked cool. The flashlight came in my favorite color and had a cool design. I didn’t expect much from it, other than acting like a regular flashlight, but it did more than I imagined. The light had one of the brightest lights I’ve ever seen in a flashlight. It was even brighter than the bulb that was in the lamp on my desk. I took the light outside to shine it in the sky, and it looked like one of those superhero symbols from those comic book movies. I instantly fell in love with the flashlight and started carrying it around with me on a daily basis.

The greatest thing about the flashlight isn’t that it can function as a flashlight. Any flashlight can shine light on something. The flashlight really excels at being used as a self defense tool. Read the rest of this entry »

My Daughter Has Beautiful Skin Again

Saturday Oct 15, 2016

My heart broke for my daughter for the longest time. She had acne, and I knew that it was causing her problems at school. Kids can be really cruel, and I knew that she was getting her fair share of taunts because of it. She also had a lot of friends and supporters though because she really is a brilliant and wonderful kid, but it was the ones who teased her that made me ache for her. I went online a few months ago to see if there was any kind of acne scar removal because I wanted her to have only good memories from her high school years.

When I found acnezine, I had a feeling that it was the answer that we had been looking for. I got really enthusiastic after reading the reviews for it because a lot of them could have been written by my daughter. She put on a brave face for me, but every now and again she gave me a glimpse of the pain she was in. When I showed her the acnezine, she was just as excited as I was. Read the rest of this entry »

Feeling Good Thanks to an Acupuncturist

Friday Sep 23, 2016

I am not the type of person to go to the doctor and comply with anything he says without doing research on my own. I was having some major pain issues in my back and neck, and my doctor wanted to do surgery. He said that he could not guarantee that it would be successful, but even if he could, I would not have went through with it. I do believe in surgery, but only as a last option. I wanted to see what my other options were, which is why I started looking at a Chicago acupuncture center.

I had never had acupuncture before, but I knew enough about it that I wanted to find out even more. I knew that it was a natural treatment that has really helped a lot of people avoid more invasive procedures like surgery. The body is an amazing instrument, and it is possible to have healing without needing to cut inside it. Read the rest of this entry »
