It was taking me about 10 minutes just to get out of bed in the mornings. Not because I was still tired, but because I was in so much pain with my back. I had to ease myself up out of bed a little at a time. My lower back hurt me something awful, and it was a lot worse in the morning. I dropped my toast on the floor one morning and yelled when I bent to pick it up. My wife came running and told me to get to one of her San Jose chiropractors right away. I thought I should go to my medical doctor instead.
I made an appointment with my doctor that morning and waited two days to see him. I was in so much pain that I called off work. When I got to the doctor, I had to wait to have tests performed. It still hurt. Then I waited for the test results to come back. Days had gone by. I was in awful pain back to work when the doctor told me to just keep taking the pain pills he gave me as nothing remarkable showed up on the imaging. That was no help whatsoever. I finally gave in and went to see the San Jose chiropractors.
I called for an appointment and got one the same morning. I got an adjustment after an electrical stim device was used, and I felt a lot better. I mean a lot better! I did not need anymore pain pills to work. The chiropractor told me how I needed to come back to finish the therapy and fix the nerve impingement that was causing my back trouble. I did not go back, and the pain flared up again. The second time I finished the therapy, and my back has never been better. Yes, I am stubborn, but I eventually learn from my errors.
