The Pain Came out of Nowhere

My mom was having such a hard time moving around. I asked her if she had injured herself in some way, such as a fall, but she told me she hadn’t. We thought that it may have been her bed, but she still felt the same way after sleeping in the guest room for a few nights. She was just chalking it up to getting older, but I knew that there had to be another reason because of how quickly it came on. I urged her to see a chiropractor in Phoenix AZ because I know that these types of doctor want to get to the bottom of a problem rather than just covering up the pain with pills or doing surgery as a first option.

I researched different ones online since there are several in the area, and it did not take me long to find out that Back in Line Spine was the one we needed her to see. The testimonials on their website were exactly what I needed to see to know that they could hopefully help my mom just like they have helped so many others who have had similar pain stories.

The Cold Air Would Cause My Shoulder Muscles to Spasm and Cause Me Awful Back and Neck Pain

When the winter gets here my back starts to hurt a whole lot more. I have always been a bit stiff in the morning or sore after working all day. However, when the cold gets here, I really start to hurt. My neck and shoulders hurt the most.

I went to a Vancouver chiropractor last winter to get relief. It worked very well for me.

I would hurt really bad when the muscles in my shoulder would start to spasm and it would tighten my neck up like a steel cable. It was awfully painful when it happened. I had my wife use the capsaicin muscle rubs on my back. That stuff burned like fire if you used too much. It sure did distract me from the pain though. However, it did nothing to make it go away. I got some relief from the microwaved rice bag I had. Continue reading

It Took a Visit to My Chiropractor in Campbell to Figure out What Was Causing My Headaches

I used to get annoying headaches. I was sent for x-rays, then a CT scan. Then they did an MRI. You know how insurance companies are, they only pay for the minimum to figure out your problem. It took forever to get the MRI. It basically showed nothing. However, my chiropractor in Campbell noticed issues with my posture. My wife told me that I would start leaning forward with my shoulders and neck when I worked at home on the computer. I would telecommute three days a week.

I noticed that my headaches started when I started a job using the computer most of the day. Continue reading
