I give full credit to two San Francisco chiropractors for getting me back to work again. One of my coworkers called me and told me that my boss had announced that I had taken entirely too much time off for my alleged back problems, so I knew that I needed to try to figure out what to do. I had long heard that many different types of pain can’t be silenced with different pain bills, but I had never had that happen to me until my back issue. It was so scary to have that happen. It was if I hadn’t taken any medication at all, and I ended up suffering for hours on end. I was sad that my boss didn’t understand, but I also knew that is the way life is sometimes, and I needed to get back to work.
I threw my back out while mowing the lawn. However, I felt the issue coming on for about 5 days prior to it happening on lawn day. I had been waking up each day feeling stiff and sore. I had trouble getting out of bed during each of those days. That is always a sign that it is going to get worse because I have been through this many times in my adult life. But I didn’t heed the warning, and I pushed myself too hard. Sometimes I can keep it from happening in full scale if I take things easy, but I didn’t do that this time.
I found a great place where two chiropractors work. My appointment with one of them went well and I was hopeful that things would get back to normal as a result. The next week, I went back for a second appointment, but needed to see the 2nd chiropractor since the guy I saw first was out on vacation. The 2nd guy was just as good as the first one. I was able to get back to work again after that 2nd visit!
