I was experiencing pain in my back for a few weeks before I finally decided to do something about it. I figured I had just pulled a muscle or something, so I thought that time was all I needed to feel like myself again. I also tried a heating pad, an ice pack, over the counter pills, and even a few massages by my husband, but none of those were working for me. The pain was not getting much worse, but it was not getting any better either. I decided to see a chiropractor in San Leandro, the same one that my cousin had been trying to get me to see for the last few years.
I never had the need to go to one before, which is why I always told her no. I knew she was a health nut, so I just attributed that to the likes of drinking pulverized celery in the mornings. Well, I can admit when I am wrong, and I even took her out to dinner to thank her for pointing me in the right direction after my third appointment with the chiropractor.
The first appointment was just to find out what was wrong with me. I had to undergo some testing, and it was determined that I had a vertebral subluxation. I didn’t even know what that meant, but he explained it in a way that was easy to follow along. The explanation of the treatment, which was spinal adjustments, was done in the same manner. I thought that it would take a while before I felt good enough to call this a success, but I could feel a difference from the first one. I have been going there for a while now, and I have not felt this good in well over 10 years. Now I see why my cousin is so gung ho on going there.
