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 »
