I Got into an Accident

It seemed like a lot more of an inconvenience than a real problem at first. I was going through an intersection in Chandler AZ when I got t boned. The guy who hit me was driving a broke down old Ford pick up truck and you could tell that he had been drinking from ten yards away. I think he had literally been taking a drink of Southern Comfort, the stuff was spilled all over him. At any rate I was mad, but it was a rental car and I felt okay.

A Football Injury That Hurt My Back

The first time I heard the word subluxation, I had no idea what it meant. All I did know was that my back was killing me, and it was not getting better on its own. I figured I might need to see a chiropractor in Beverly Hills to get things back to normal. What had happened was rather silly.

She needed to cut back on her caloric intake or increase her activity. She was not liking her desk job, and she only accepted the promotion because of the money. Mom felt better after the first treatment at the chiropractor. The throbbing ache in her lower back was gone. Continue reading
