If I would have had to guess the last person I thought would be in need of mobility aids, I would have instantly said myself. I had always been very active and healthy, but that does not mean a thing when someone loses control of their brakes and their car hits yours at a high rate of speed. I am considered blessed that I am even alive, and I am thankful for that. I had to endure six surgeries, and I may never regain the use of my left leg. My right leg is better, but I still have problems with it.
Because of that, I was having a very hard time getting around. The therapy I had gone through did get me stronger, but I was still very weak and felt like I could not do much of anything. There is one physical therapist who saw something in me that no one else did, including myself. She refused to give up on me, and she would not allow me to do that either.
A chiropractor in Petaluma totally turned my life around through the magic of massage. I had always heard about how great massages are when it comes to loosening up the muscles, getting positive energy flowing through your body, and getting rid of stress and anxiety, but I had never tried one before. Basically I never felt like I needed a massage because I’ve been blessed with a healthy constitution and a mentality that handles stress and anxiety well. Things changed when I took a very demanding job at a bank. In no time at all my stress levels went through the roof.
The job really had a negative effect on every part of my life. I couldn’t sleep and I was working way too many hours. I couldn’t quit because I needed the job, but I definitely needed to find a way to reduce my stress. My doctor suggested taking prescription drugs, drugs he promised would improve my outlook on life.
Once I went to a chiropractor in Peoria, my overall health greatly improved. It’s funny to say that because many people assume you go to a chiropractor when you’ve gotten whiplash in an auto accident, have a bad back, or have something like tennis elbow. Chiropractors are associated with muscle injuries and repetitive motion problems, but nowadays they do so much more than that. The chiropractor I visited for a shoulder injury not only took care of that problem, but also drew attention to my overall health and how I needed to take supplements to make up for dietary deficiencies.
The shoulder injury quickly turned into a minor situation that the chiropractor fixed with some stretching. The chiropractor thought the real problem might be a magnesium deficiency.
