While looking for a chiropractor in Redding for my wife, I injured my back and needed one too. My wife threw her back out and was in terrible pain, so I was searching online for a chiropractor. The laptop I was using gave me a low battery warning, so I went to plug it into one of the wall outlets. As I was making my way to the outlet, I slipped on a rug and fell backwards. I hit my back pretty hard and it put me in the same situation as my wife, if not worse. I almost called the ambulance, but I was able to make my way back to the computer and get a chiropractor.
I called my son over and asked him if he could drive my wife and I to the chiropractor and he did it without hesitation. The chiropractor had never seen a husband and wife pair who both had injured backs at the same time. Even though I was in pain, I was still able to see the funny side of my situation. After an examination, we learned that nothing was broken, which was a huge relief for me, because I was worried that I did some heavy damage with that fall. Our injuries could easily be healed with rest and medication.
For the next few days after the incident, my wife and I were resting in bed, while our son attended to us to make sure that we had everything we needed. It was like we had both turned into little kids again who were staying home from school. My son made us soup and even whipped up some of his special ice cream for us. I don’t want to get injured again, but I could get used to the special treatment that comes along with it.
