Modern Torture

I went to the chiropractor for the first time on Saturday.  I've been so scared of it for years.  I always thought that chiropractors get you in their office and then "fix" you so you have to keep coming back forever.  I've also been not so keen on hearing my back crack. 

My back was hurting so badly and not getting better so I sucked it up and called a chiropractor.  I got a recommendation from Kelly, called on Friday night and was in there first thing Saturday morning.  Good call. 

I went back in this morning and I'll go again on Friday.  My back felt better immediately.  I'm still a little sore and didn't like the cracking sounds, but I'm a believer.

  1. I am a full-on believer of the chiropractor. If he didn't insist on taking half my husband's paycheck I'd be there once a week, crackling sounds or no.

  3. Wow, my chiro doesn't have a contraption that looks like that? He got me squared away after my minor accident, and I'll definitely go back if needed. I always felt so good after a visit with him. Didn't hurt that he's easy on the eyes, and always smelled so nice!

  4. I've always gone to alternative chiropractors - more of a holistic medicine approach - so I get all of the relief with no cracking (and I've been going pretty regularly for 20 years because of an injury when I was young). I think the cracking would disturb me a bit too. My current chiro has a background in sports medicine, and while she uses a contraption that looks like the one in the picture, she has a more gentle approach that doesn't crack anything but still aligns everything the way it should be. I'm totally pro-chiro.

    Glad your back feels better! Chronic back pain can ruin everything else about your day.

  5. Our chiropractor was a life saver on many occassions but the best is when she adjusted Micah as an infant and cured his colic! I am glad you are feeling better.
