Today's appointment was all about going to the Chiropractor. But what is Chiropractor? According to the definition from MedicineNet.com :
Someone who practices chiropractic. Chiropractic defined as a system of diagnosis and treatment that is based upon the concept that the nervous system coordinates all of the body's functions and holds that disease results from a lack of normal nerve function and employs manipulation and specific adjustment of body structures such as the spinal column so that pressure on nerves coming from the spinal cord due to displacement (subluxation) of a vertebral body may, it is believed, cause problems not only in the back but some distance from it as in the leg. Chiropractors therefore work to manipulate the spine with their hands to realign the vertebrae and relieve the pressure on the nerves. Chiropractic treatment is believed effective for muscle spasms of the back and neck, tension headaches, and some sorts of leg pain.
I must admit I was a little hesitant and scared about going. I really didn't know what to expect. Thank God my MIL was there to lend her support while Ralph stayed home with the kids. The doctor was very nice and really explained to me everything that they are going to be doing to help relieve me of the pain I have been experiencing. When the doctor finally asked me to lay down on the bed or table whatever you may call it I was a terrified. As he was aligning my spine I could not help but yelp out loud when I heard crack and my spine align,lol.. He gamely said to everyone there " we got a screamer here!" . Of course I didn't scream but I yelped loud,hahahahaha.. It just I couldn't help myself, it was painful but it felt so good. I have another appointment for Wednesday and he will decide by then how many sessions I need to help fix my back pain.. I do feel good, hopefully the pain will subside and I will wake up one day pain free...
