When you think of someone going to a Beverly Hills chiropractor, what do you imagine? Do you imagine movie stars who may have strained their backs doing Pilates, or do you imagine a guy like me who keeps the infrastructure of Beverly Hills running? And when I say infrastructure, I really mean it. I am talking about what everyone needs, and that is the sewer system. Without it, the stink rises quickly no matter how rich the residents are. I hurt my back managing a concrete section of sewer piping that was big enough for a man to walk through standing up. It was being hoisted by a crane.
Normally, one man can push or pull on tons of weight suspended by a crane to get it to rotate on the strap holding it up. You can tilt it a bit up and down too when the strap is right at the balance point. We were fitting two sections of pipe together, and I was maneuvering the pipe. I slipped while really giving it a tug and wrenched my back.
