I Need to Be Able to Travel on Foot Easily Without Back Issues

One of the things I did first when I moved here was to find a San Francisco chiropractor for myself. I had been seeing one for years in my hometown, and I felt that it would be impossible to go without seeing one here. I have had too many problems with my back to not find one. This is especially true now that I will be walking to work. Around here, most people who have cars are people who come in from other cities. Those of us who live within the city itself walk often. And that means that you need to stay fit and strong.

I had always wanted to move to California, and I made it my mission to make it happen. (more…)

I Was So Tired After Giving Birth

I had not been feeling well after giving birth to my first daughter. It was not that I felt sick, because I didn’t. I just did not feel good. I had several people tell me that was normal after giving birth, but it seemed to linger on with me. I knew that I had to do something because I was flat out exhausted at the end of the day. It had nothing to do with my daughter, because she was just perfect in every way. A good friend suggested that I see her Sacramento chiropractic doctor as she thought he would really be able to help me out a lot.

I wanted to feel better, so it made sense to go ahead and make an appointment. She had told me about her regular spinal adjustments, and how they make her feel so much better. If she misses one of them, she can actually feel the difference in her body. (more…)

Sore Back from a Fall

I hate having to rush to class in the morning, because I have to pedal as fast as I can on my bicycle without hitting anything or getting hit. A couple of weeks ago, I woke up with only 10 minutes to get to class, and it normally takes me 20 minutes to get there. I took every shortcut I could think of and did everything but break the traffic laws. Right as I was getting close to the class building, I fell off my bicycle. I still made it to class, but I needed a chiropractor in University Place much later.

I was able to get up and lock by bicycle with just a minute to get inside. I sat through the entire class period, and as I did, I felt a pain in my back that would only keep getting worse. (more…)

A Chiropractor is Making Me Feel Better

One minute, I was driving down the road, listening to some music and just happy to be done with work for the day. The next thing I remember was immense pain as I looked at the pile of cars around me. A drunk driver had run a red light, and he hit six of us. I was the first one hit so I took the brunt of the impact. I knew exactly what a jack in the box felt like after that, because I had the worst case of whiplash. Thankfully, a chiropractor in Pleasanton was able to help me recover from that.

An ambulance took me to the hospital, and they kept me overnight for observation. I had pain meds through the IV, so I didn’t realize just how much it was going to hurt when I no longer had that. Before getting released, the doctor advised me to see a chiropractor, which I had already planned on doing. (more…)

Back Pain in Beverly Hills is Like Back Pain Everywhere else

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.

Time Was Running out when I Finally Found Relief

 

I really did not think much about not being able to work in my first 30 years of life. I took it for granted that I would have no trouble doing so until retirement age. But one day, a car clipped me when I was out riding in a bike path, and I ended up having long term pain. So much so that the only thing that helped me was a really good San Jose chiropractor a few months back. Without that help, I really do not know what would have happened. It got scary for awhile when I found myself needing to take off so much time from work.

I have always been such a hard worker.
