Enjoy the benefits of chiropractic care – the largest natural, drug-free, surgery-free, expressive healthcare system in the world.
When I was about 19, I picked up a little boy that I was babysitting and pulled out my lower back. It was the first time I ever had back pain.
After having three children all by c-section, my core muscles were shot. The stability in my core was gone; therefore my back and hips ached regularly. I assumed this was just the way life was going to be now. I tried to rebuild my core and did exercises that helped, but my back still hurt.
At one point, I was venting on Facebook that my pain level was about a 6 out of 10 daily, and a friend suggested I see a chiropractor who had an office in our town. I was nervous because it was something that was new and different, but I made the phone call and they had an appointment for new patients available the next day.
After my first chiropractic adjustment, my pain level dropped from a 6 to a 2. Initially, I had weekly adjustments and after about six weeks I was completely pain-free. Something weird happened though. My insomnia went away and so did my migraines!
That was in 2017.
It has been over 6 years since my first adjustment, and I have learned a lot more about chiropractic care since then. I’m not always pain-free, but when I’m not that is an indication that I am overdue for a chiropractic adjustment. I went from weekly migraines to only a few a year. Chiropractic care has also helped me to avoid surgery to have tubes placed in my ears.
