I was at the store not long ago when I was involved in an accident there. I would have never guessed that I would end up in the emergency room because I was at the soda aisle, but there you go. What happened was one of the workers was not paying attention when he moved a cart, and the boxes tipped over and onto the floor. The only unfortunate part is that I was right there too, and I ended up seeing a chiropractor in San Leandro because I twisted my back when the boxes knocked me down.
The store insisted I go to the emergency room because of the pain I was in, and I actually had no problem doing that. I was hurting, and I knew that I might have serious injuries from my fall there. Thankfully, the emergency room doctor told me that I had no major injuries, but he did tell me that I should see a chiropractor because of the pain I was in. I had already told him that I did not want any narcotics to help me with the pain, even after he had advised me that it was probably going to get worse before it got better.
Though I did not heed his medicine suggestion, I did take his advice about the chiropractor. I was able to get in the next day, and I had my first ever adjustment done at that appointment. It was more than just that though. I was advised on the physical therapy I would need to do, and I was also given massage therapy, which I have to say was the best part of this all. I hate that I got hurt just going to the grocery store, but I am thankful that there are professionals who are able to help people like me who do not want to take pills to cover up a problem.
