I can't really remember a time when I didn't have a sore/stiff neck. It's like this constant thing that just nags me, and I never really did anything about it.
Recently Drea posted about going to a Chiropractor, and how much it has helped her. I decided to try it out, just to see what it was all about.
I found a local Chiropractor and Tuesday was my first visit. I was less than impressed with how long I had to wait. Let's just say that I spent pretty much my whole afternoon there. I did overhear someone saying that there had been an emergency that morning, so they were behind, but good grief!
My back/neck did feel a whole lot better after that visit though. I have trouble with holding my head up straight, and I think I finally found a way to fix that! My neck was so tight that it was preventing me from full movement. I feel so much better now!
I did ask the Chiro how often she would like to see me. Til everything is straightened out, it will likely be a couple times a week, and then I will only need to come in when I feel like I need to.
It was interesting to learn a bit about how Chiropractic works too. I had no idea! She explained to me how if something is out of place, the body cannot heal itself like usual, because the nerves are blocked. (Don't quote me on this, but it all made sense to me. I'm just not so good at remembering actual terminology) Chiropractors will move the spine back in place so the nerves can start doing their job again.
She also mentioned my eczema, and recommended that I go see a Naturopathic Dr. I already have an appointment booked for a few weeks from now, and I told her that. She said that it should help me. I can't wait to find out :) I'm so sick of looking my skin looking like I'm 60. Ever wonder why I don't post pictures of myself very often? Now you know.
So, I'm very excited that I am finally doing something about my health. I hope that this will finally be the answer for me. I feel so good about my decision to do this, despite my previous skepticism about Chiropractors. I just thought they cracked your back and risked your life!
