Feeling Better After a Chiropractic Visit

I don’t know why I don’t listen to my wife more. She will tell me something, and most of the time I will listen to her. There are times when I think I know better though, but it usually turns out that she was right after all. One of those instances happened not too long ago when I fell down the short flight of steps going into the living room. She told me immediately when I had trouble getting up that I needed to see a chiropractor in Santa Barbara, but I had to be all manly about it and tough it out.

I did let her coddle me a bit though. She put a heating pad on my back, and rubbed my shoulders since the pain seemed to go all the way up there too. She even made me my favorite homemade soup. However, none of that stopped the pain from ramping up as the day continued on. I had such a hard time sleeping that night, and I knew by the next morning that I was going to have to eat crow. That is much easier to do when the outcome meant I hopefully not be hurting as much after the chiropractic visit.

I was able to get in that same day. My wife drove me because I couldn’t even do that on my own with the level of pain I was in. Getting from the car to the actual exam room went much faster than I thought it would, and I was getting my first adjustment not long after that. When he started doing it, I thought it was going to hurt even more, but the opposite happened. I heard the pop even before I felt it, and relief just flooded through my body. I definitely walked out of that office a much different man.
