Taking Action Helped Me to Feel Better

I found myself stumbling to my computer one morning to begin looking for the phone number of a chiropractor in University Place WA who might see me for an appointment as soon as possible. I had been frozen in place almost all night because moving around in bed to try to find a comfortable position because of my bad back, and I was tired and frustrated. I feared that I wouldn’t be able to get an appointment anywhere for at least a couple of days, but the second place that I called said that I could come in that morning since someone else had canceled. I was pretty grateful.

That morning, I found myself walking very, very slowly to the shower. I had hoped that a really hot shower might help my back some. But while I was in the shower, the water felt good, but didn’t cause my troubles to change for the better. But I knew that. I had done this many times before and hadn’t had any luck. Hope is what had been keeping me in denial about how bad things were. I needed to be someone who takes action, and I knew it. I have no idea why I try to put things off. It was time to stop that and get better.

The chiropractor sat down with me and came up with a plan to become more healthy. He told me that I needed to lose about 45 pounds so that I could take some of the pressure off my back. He gave me a back adjustment that day that felt wonderful. He also worked out a very relaxing stretching program that he wanted me to follow at home. He said that would help strengthen my muscles in my back so that it would hurt less, and of course, he was correct.

I Found out What Gives Me Purpose in Life

I became a chiropractor in Oceanside because I like to help people. Not only that, but I love giving people the type of help that makes them want to come back again and again because they respect me and will do a good job with what I do for them. I am this way in most areas of my life. I like to give, and I like people as well. People energize me and they make me happy. So, I do what I do for them as a thank you. It took me many years to realize what I wanted to do as a career, but once I made up my mind, I didn’t look back. Now, I know there is nothing else I would rather do as a profession. I found what makes me happy.

I was not always the type of person that I am now. Continue reading

You Have to Do What You Can to Stay Fit for As Long As Possible

I looked in the phone book to find a chiropractor in San Francisco right after I fell off the curb in front of my apartment complex. I had gone through all the trouble that can come with hurting your back many years before, and I knew from experience that you don’t mess around and let the problem grow worse. What can feel like such a small injury that can be ignored can easily become a much bigger problem before you know it. I play softball and am really active on a weekly basis. Sports is my life and I really did not want to find myself unable to keep up with my team members.

The chiropractor I went to was great and fixed me up pretty quickly, I still go to see him because he keeps my back in good shape. Years earlier, I had tried to ignore the pain I was having and I found myself barely able to sit or stand for a month because of it. You really cannot let these things go. This is a lesson that I had to learn the hard way. I have always been one that has ignored pain, and I did that during my teen years and through much of my twenties. But the older you get, the more you need to stay on top of things. You may find that you don’t heal as well on your own.

After getting some good care for my back, I was back out on the softball field playing again within just a week. It is important for me to stay in shape, and I really enjoy being active with athletics. I really do not know what I will do one day when I am in my 80s and feel that I can no longer participate in sports. But for now, I try to do what I can to keep myself able to stay active for as long as possible.

My Mom Just Needed a Chiropractor

My mom was not feeling well, and most of the family thought that we just needed to give her time. I did not agree with them though. It was almost as if she was starting to give up, and that is understandable from a certain perspective. However, I love my mom, and I was not prepared to let her go down that road if I could help it. I had been going to a chiropractor in Pleasanton for myself for a couple of years at that point, and I asked him if there was anything he could do to help my mom.

My father died a couple of years ago, and then her arthritis has flared up something awful in the past year. Continue reading

Local Chiropractors Located in Sacramento

I do not know what I did to my back but it is just killing me and I had to lay out of work due to the sheer amount of pain that I am in. That is saying a lot too, because I pride myself on being someone who has a very high pain tolerance, and I have never missed work for just pain before. So this is something new to me, and I want to find a a list of Sacramento chiropractors along with some reviews by customers, so that I can try to compare them and then decide which chiropractor I am going to go see.

I have seen a chiropractor once or twice before in the past, but it was not when I lived in Sacramento, so that mean I will have to look for one to visit and I am going to try to read a bunch of reviews to help with the process of figuring this out. Continue reading

Still on the Mend from a Bad Wreck

I thought that I understood what pain was, but I found out about a year ago that no matter how bad pain is, it can always get worse. That is what happened to me when I was in a car accident. I was so grateful when the ambulance got me to the hospital and they were able to give me intravenous pain meds because the pain was like nothing I had ever felt before. I did have surgery, and then I went to see a Vancouver chiropractor that specializes in cases like mine after my release.

The accident was not my fault at all, and I knew that I was going to need legal help because I had a lot of medical bills plus I lost a lot of time at work. Truth be told, I don’t know that I can ever go back to what I did before, but I am thankful that the chiropractor that I have been going to has been able to help me recover to the point where I am at today. They have helped me in so many ways since they are also in contact with my attorney, giving him the necessary updates that are needed as my legal case moves forward. Continue reading

I Did Not Want to Hurt Anymore

My boss noticed that I was moving slower not that long ago, and she asked me what was wrong. She didn’t ask me until she noticed that I had been walking that way for a few days. She thought that I might have had an injury, but I told her that I had no idea what had happened, that I had just woke up that way a few days prior. She told me that I should see the same Campbell chiropractor that she goes to twice a month. She has been really happy with how she has been feeling since seeing him, so I figured that I really had nothing to lose by making an appointment. Continue reading

Arthritis Does Not Have to Stop People from Living a Full Life

I thought that I was just going to have to live with the arthritis that I had. I know it is a part of aging, but it was not one that I quite ever got used to. Moving around slower might cut it for some people, but I am just too active to have to want to deal with arthritic pain. When a friend of mine suggested that I see her chiropractor in Santa Rosa, I was surprised that they actually have treatment plans for arthritis. It is not really that there is a cure for it, but there are measures that can be taken to make sure that the arthritis does not stop me in my tracks. Continue reading

I Tried Something I’d Never Tried Before That Works Really Well

It was frustrating to see that my stress levels had finally reached the point of me being stressed and anxious almost always. For many decades, I handle issues like a pro. Things would upset me for awhile, but I always returned to my usual calm state afterward. Then, things piled up so much that my body seemed to be on alert and unhappy almost always. Doctors were of little help, but a Chicago acupuncture session did. It feels wonderful to feel like my old self again.

I grew up in a family that was very dysfunctial and there always seemed to be a variety of different types of turmoil going on at any given time. Despite that, I was young and could handle it for the most part. It did leave behind some residual issues that I carried throughout life, but nothing drastic. Continue reading

We Get Help to Keep Up with Our Child’s Energy Levels

When my doctor told me that I was pregnant, you could have knocked me over with a feather. I had tried to get pregnant for over a decade with no luck. I was 46 when I learned I was with child, so it was a shocker all around. But now that my son is 5 years old, and I am 51, having fun with him can really take a toll on me. It was a Redding chiropractor who helped me recently get better because of this aging body and keeping up with my child.

The night that I told my husband that I was pregnant, I made sure to have him sit down at a moment when he did not have anything else on his mind to do. Continue reading

Skin Specialists in Manchester Area

I don’t know what is wrong with my skin, but it doesn’t seem right, and I think that I should see a Manchester skin specialist to see what is going on with it. I have had these areas on my hand that have been losing skin and they are not healing. It has been going on for 8 months or more and they are still not healing.

But anyway, I am not really sure what to do about this. I hate to go see the doctor, but I am not sure that I really have that much of a choice at the moment. I am pretty sure that it has been too long though and this isn’t healing so I need to figure out something to get done with it. Continue reading

I Think I Might Be Getting Arthritis

It is not as though I am crippled by it or anything, but I think that I might be getting bursitis or arthritis in my joints lately. At first it was in my elbow, the left one mainly and I was thinking that I had done something to my bursa sac. Not really sure what that is or what it does, but that is where it hurt. I started to feel better after a friend of mine said for me to try these curcumin or turmeric supplement pills. I was skeptical and I am still, but it does appear that the inflammation has gone down. I suspect it is just as much a natural thing as any other cause. Of course so long as the thought is that it might be working I will keep on taking the stuff. You can be as skeptical as you like, but it is not as though I have much to lose by taking the stuff. Continue reading

I Am Athletic and Strong and Still Needed a Sacramento Chiropractor

I have lived here since I was a teenager, and I have probably passed by this Sacramento chiropractor clinic hundreds if not thousands of times. I never in a million years thought I would need a chiropractor. However, my wife and I took a ski trip and I hurt my back. I have always been in great shape. I have good genetics and an interest in physical activity. If you had asked me prior to going to a chiropractor what type of people I thought would use their services, I would have guessed most to be overweight and out of shape.

Don’t get me wrong. I do not tell anyone how they should look or how active they should be. Everyone can make their own choice. Most of my friends have plenty of extra padding. I do not look down on them for it. I just thought that people who hurt their backs were more likely to not do any athletic things. I was wrong. It turns out that people in great shape who are highly athletic have a lot of injuries. Continue reading

Extract from the Moringa Tree

I heard that there is a new craze about this extract from a tree that is called Moringa, I suppose it is native to Africa, or something like that. I had never heard of it, but to be clear, that is just the genus name, I am not sure what the species name is. Anyway, I would like to make sure that I am able to purchase some of this stuff, because I am very curious to try it out, and to see what sort of health benefits it could confer upon me.

It apparently has a whole lot of nutrients in it, and that is what makes it so interesting to me at the moment. Continue reading

Working As an Intern at an Agency

I am just the art guy’s intern. I am learning how they set up the ads, what you would call framing the ad. For instance the ad iwill have a caption, something like super argan oil for hair and skin. That is the message you are trying to convey, it tells you what you are selling and why you should pay for the stuff. Then you need to get the buyer’s attention and that is not so easy, obviously an American consumer sees and ignores thousands of ads in any given day. They are going to ignore just about anything that is like every other ad they have seen and it is pretty difficult to come up with some new idea. Continue reading

I Need to Find a Dentist in Monterey

I need to find a dentist in Monterey and I really do not know how I should go about picking one. Of course in my home town, back in Las Cruces, New Mexico I have had the same dentist for the past twenty three years, aside from the three and a half years it took me to graduate from New Mexico State. When I was there I went to the dental students at the school of dentistry. I was not sure it was a good idea, but they never had to do anything dramatic. The Monterey dentist is probably going to have to do something pretty significant. When I was in college they just looked at my teeth and told me that they were fine, after I got them cleaned because I like having sparkly teeth for the swarms of beautiful young ladies you find on any college campus. I moved back home after graduation and got a great job in the insurance industry just like my Mom and my Dad. Continue reading

You Can Get Relief and Get Better from Most Things That Cause Chronic Back Pain

I had enough of pain in my back. I would go to the doctor and they would do tests. I have had x-rays, MRIs, nerve conduction tests and you name it. My back shows that I have some degeneration of the discs. My mom had it too. What I would not face was the part I had in my own pain. That is until I chose a chiropractor in Alexandria who helped me see my role in the cause of my own pain, and then went a step further to show me what I could do to fix my own pain.

Fortunately, for me, I was adamant about not having back surgery. I had a surgeon tell me he could operate. I looked at the real numbers of what my chances of living pain free after the surgery would be. Continue reading

Constant Back Pain After Injury

I am definitely kind of annoyed by the fact that I have to deal with back pain every day of my life now. About 6 months ago, I fell down a flight of stairs and really messed up my back. I actually spent a day in the hospital, but the pain has not gown away. I am going to look at chiropractor in Alexandria to go see for my back problems and hopefully they will be able to do something to fix it for good. I would be very happy if I could stop dealing with back pain. I don’t think they will be able to get rid of it all the way, because the pain is pretty pervasive, but maybe they do a good job at getting rid of it.

I am really excited about the fact that I was just able to schedule an appointment tomorrow. Continue reading

Different Uses for a Medical Alert System

You probably have seen the TV commercials for those things seniors wear around their necks to call for help. One of those commercials has been even used in humor of all things! However, the situation is very serious. Many seniors benefit from the immediate access to medical help that a medical alert system provides. You just press a button and emergency services are dispatched. However, more than just seniors can benefit from the technology.

Diabetics who have difficulty with low blood glucose levels, and those with seizure and other disorders can benefit from having a medical alert system. Continue reading

Finding the Best Teeth Whitening System

I like tea. My favorite is the stronger British blend of black tea. I like the orange pekoe and black blends too. However, my teeth do not like it. I have an iced tea container that is plastic. The drink stains the plastic so bad that I cannot even scrub off those spots that look rusty with stains. Now my teeth are even more porous than that plastic picture. Since I cannot scrub away the stains, I looked for the best teeth whitening system that I could use to keep my pearly whites shining.

I wanted something that would not damage my teeth or make them sensitive. I already had to use a toothpaste for sensitive teeth. I did not want to give up my favorite beverage I have been drinking it since I was a child. I used to drink it with sugar and then artificial sweetener when I got older. Now I just drink it without any sort of sweetener. I just like the taste of it. Continue reading
