Somehow I Did It in My Sleep

A slight pain in my back started out small, but began to grow larger over time. I wasn’t exactly sure how it happened, but I know once it became noticeable, I tried to get rid of it. I took some medicine, used ointments, and even tried some herbal supplements. Since there was nothing I could do to stop the growing pain in my back, I had to stop my home remedies and see a Cumming chiropractor. The chiropractor determined that the cause of all my trouble was a simple pulled muscle.

I couldn’t remember pulling a muscle, so I figured that it must have happened in my sleep. I’ve heard of some crazy things happening while people are sleeping. A friend of mine dislocated a shoulder while he was sleeping, and he didn’t even fall out of bed. Once my own father rolled out of bed and didn’t wake up. Read more “Somehow I Did It in My Sleep”

They’re Still Useful for Something

A little injury took me on a journey into the past. I was working on my gutters and fell off the ladder. I was the only one at home, and at first I thought that I was done for, but I was still able to move. I walked inside while being in pain. I had to find a chiropractor to look at my back. Even though I broke my phone in the fall, finding San Francisco chiropractors was pretty easy with the aid of the phone book, something that I never thought I would actually have to use.

The phone company keeps sending the phone books every year. Even though most people can just call a special number to find out information about services or locations in their area, or use the Internet to find what they need, there are still those people who don’t like to use the Internet or phones for this. These people are usually old and can’t stand dealing with new forms of technology because they can’t understand it. Read more “They’re Still Useful for Something”

Effective Sciatica Treatment Without Surgery

A Concord chiropractor saved me a lot of time and money, and likely a lot of pain, by providing several different treatments that allowed me to avoid surgery for a Sciatica condition. If you’ve never had Sciatica, consider yourself lucky. It’s a debilitating nerve condition that really wears down your ability to live a normal life. I never expected to find myself with this condition. If I had to guess, I suspect I got it from a combination of old age and sitting around in front of the computer all day. I don’t really know how I got it, though.

Whatever the case, I needed to do something to alleviate the pain because it was making life very difficult. Sleeping became a chore. If I did manage to get some sleep, the pain seemed worse in the morning when I got up. Over the last several months, the pain became so great in the morning that it took twice as long as it used to do just to get ready and get myself into work.

Understanding How Your Heart Works is Important

Finding out about cardiovascular meaning became quite important after I recently had a health scare. I’d quit smoking several years ago only to start again recently. Almost as soon as I started smoking, I felt quite horrible. I noticed I was getting dizzy, and not in a passing way that you sometimes get with cigarettes. I also noticed my heart seemed to pound in my chest. When I started getting nosebleeds, I became concerned enough to schedule an appointment with my doctor. Obviously, something wasn’t right. I shouldn’t be getting nosebleeds just because I lit up a cigarette.

One of the first things they do at the doctor’s office is take your blood pressure. That’s because it’s important and many things can be diagnosed if you’ve got high blood pressure. Read more “Understanding How Your Heart Works is Important”

Painting a Ceiling Mural About Wrecked My Back

I have been painting canvasses for over 30 years. I a;so did a couple of small murals for our community. A retail store owner asked me to paint the ceiling in his dining room that was being renovated. I worked looking up every day for six weeks. By the end of the first week, I was looking for Sacramento chiropractors to help keep me working. I was not used to working with my arms raised over my head like that for hours at a time. The human body is not designed to paint ceilings. If the ladder or scaffolding is too high, you have to bend your neck. If it is low enough for you to look up and see, you have to paint with your arms over your head. I tried to paint while lying on my back as Michelangelo was reported to have done when painting the Sistine Chapel, but that approach only worked for me when doing fine detail.

The owner of the house brought me in a scissor lift so that I could easily adjust my distance from the ceiling. That helped a lot. It was much easier than constantly adjusting scaffolding too. Read more “Painting a Ceiling Mural About Wrecked My Back”

We Just Finished Moving Again

We needed to get a new apartment and so we started to look around, trying to find something that was good for the both of us. She has a new job in the office of a Beverly Hills chiropractor and I still work downtown, so we are on the wrong side of the metro area right now. It is obvious that nothing we pick is going to be ideal or even close to it, but it is going to be pretty easy to find a place which is better than what we have now. Aside from the location there is a really big problem with this place. The parking lot is simply not well lit and it is scary to go out there after the sun goes down.

Getting Settled in Here in California

Of course it is not ideal here by any means, the cost of living here is just flat out outrageous and if all things were equal I would have been better off without the promotion and the relocation. Things were not really offered to me as a choice though. The company needed me here and they gave me the choice of having a job in California or not having one elsewhere. At any rate I just got home from seeing a chiropractor in San Rafael after I hurt my back while I was moving into my new place, a tiny little house that I found by accident.

Fightning the Pain with Sweetness

Every fall, my son and I go to a local area to pick some fresh fruit. The fruit is grown by a farmer who has special breeds of different kinds of fruit. He likes to cross them together to create new flavors that can’t be found anywhere else. While picking some fruit from one of the trees, I pulled something in my back and it gave me a dull ache. After we finished picking fruit, my son and I went home to eat, and the pain got worse. I looked for a chiropractor in Santa Rosa that would be able to take me in the morning.

After finding a chiropractor in an online listing, I made arrangements to see him first thing in the morning. In the meantime, I took some aspirin to hold off the pain until the morning. My wife made a delicious pie from some of the fruit that we picked to help me feel better. While talking to the chiropractor about my pain, I mentioned that I had been picking fruit with my son, and the chiropractor knew exactly where we were. He had been there many times to pick fruit and was planning on going some time in the next week.

Fortunately for me, the injury I gained from picking fruit was just a little muscle issue that would be fine in a week. That was a relief, because I wasn’t prepared to pay for any kind of invasive procedure. I was given a prescription for something that would work a little better than the over the counter aspirin for relieving the pain. The time that it took for my back to heal flew by when I was eating my wife’s pie. She could make a pie out of old shoes and it would probably taste like heaven.

Sports Turned My Life Around

Playing sports is beneficial for people for a number of reasons. I know some enter into this arena because they are just physical beasts while others do it because of the competitive nature of most sports games. For me, I did it because I wanted to socialize more. I was very shy, and I thought that this might help me break out of my shell. It did that, but I discovered that I just love sports in general too. I even started seeing a Santa Barbara chiropractor because I knew that I was going to put my body through a lot, and I wanted to take care of myself too.

This all happened when I was in college. Read more “Sports Turned My Life Around”

One Simple Thing Now Helps Many Sick People Around the Country

My grandmother had cancer for 2 years. I feared that we would lose her, but she is now cancer-free. It was not an easy road for her, but the fact that she had the ability to use Marlton medical marijuana during her journey really helped her get through it all a little bit easier. I am so grateful that lawmakers in my state now see how helpful it would be to legalize it so that people who are suffering can have a better life. It makes me happy that our country is changing for the better and that people are waking up to how important it is to help one another.

My grandmother and I have always been close. When I was just a little girl, my mom had to work long hours to support me. Mom worked a full-time job, and she also had to take on extra work beyond that in order to cover all the bills that she had. Read more “One Simple Thing Now Helps Many Sick People Around the Country”
