My Chiropractor in Santa Barbara is My Secret Weapon Against Pain

Thursday Nov 2, 2017

M brother and I used to be able to go for days working at breakneck speed and not even be sore the next morning. He still works like that and I have worked at a computer now for a number of years. When he got hurricane damage my wife and I took vacation time to go help him and his family. I could not let my older brother outdo me even though he kept insisting I slow down. I worked at the same pace as him, and I am still seeing my chiropractor in Santa Barbara now that we are back home. We got the work done that insurance would not cover, but it was hard work and very long hours.

My brother’s employment place was temporarily out of business while they rebuilt, and he had the time to work to fix up the damage on his property. He also worked to clean up where he had his job. Read the rest of this entry »

Getting Older but Fighting Weight Gain and Chronic Back Pain

Thursday Nov 2, 2017

I started jogging again after having given it up for a few years. Work took priority as promotions were available and our children were being born. I started to get a bigger middle, so I started jogging again to burn calories and stay strong. It hurt my back so bad just to go about a quarter of the distance I used to be able to run. After a particularly bad day with back pain, I went to see a chiropractor in Santa Barbara for some help. My big belly was throwing my center of gravity off and straining my back as I ran. Part of the pain was muscular, and part of the pain was caused by a spinal misalignment of constantly compensating for my fat up front.

I needed chiropractic adjustments to help me not have the pain so I would be encouraged to keep on exercising to lose the weight. Read the rest of this entry »

One Job That Can’t Be Outsourced

Monday Oct 23, 2017

I decided to work in home health care in Fort Lauderdale because it’s really the best career move a young person like me can make. Eventually I want to go to school to become a registered nurse with a focus on elderly care, so it made sense to look into a position at a local nursing home. I thought I could be a CNA or something similar, but they suggested I consider doing in home health care. It’s actually a growing field as many people don’t want to leave their homes so they require assistance in the form of a person who visits them.

Florida is probably ground zero for innovations in elderly care because as everyone knows many retirees move to the state from all around the country. Sometimes I wonder how many nursing homes there are in this state. It’s got to be a large number. Add in all the people who are now getting help at home and the number is positively staggering. I’m glad they suggested I do the home thing because working in an actual home can be a bit depressing. Read the rest of this entry »

Building Foam Puzzles with My Granddaughter

Wednesday Oct 18, 2017

My old knees kind of make it so I want to stay off of the floor, but our granddaughter is of the age where the floor is pretty much her entire world of discovery right now. Tea parties and stuffed animal slumber parties are all held on the floor. She can jump up and move on to the next thing that interests her, and I have to creak, click, pop and groan to get up. I looked for floor puzzles for 3 year old children to get something that would let us be able to spend more time in one spot on the floor. I stand up and am over six-foot tall. She is closer to the floor, so things are more interesting there for her. Read the rest of this entry »

I Need a New Chiropractor

Monday Oct 9, 2017

I have had problems with my back for a rather long time, the root of it is actually rather embarrassing. When I was in college I used to drink a good deal on occasion, or more succinctly I drink to excess on occasion. That was what happened, although I was also trying to impress a very attractive young lady. I took a fall and at the time I laughed about it, but the next morning I was in pretty serious pain. A Petaluma chiropractor fixed it for me back then, although it took me a good while to figure out that this was what I needed to do about it. If you go to see a doctor about this sort of issue, they will likely offer to give you a bottle of pills for pain. Read the rest of this entry »

Someone Reminded Me to Try to Get Help in a Different Way

Sunday Oct 8, 2017

I’m always surprised when someone has to remind me of something that I know is important, yet I have forgotten about it. One good example of this is when someone questioned why I hadn’t gone to a Sacramento chiropractor to be assessed for my bad back. I was taken aback for a moment because I had known for many years how helpful chiropractors can be, but I hadn’t thought about it over the two years that I had been struggling with chronic pain. Nothing had been helping me, and I knew that chiropractic help was my last hope.

I wish I could say that I saw the back troubles coming early on. If I had seen them coming on, I might have been able to do something about it. Instead, what happened is that I was sitting outside on my woooden deck while throwing the ball to my dog so that he could fetch it. 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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 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 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 »

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 »

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.

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 »
