I Wish I Would Have Seen a Chiropractor in My Early 20s

My back trouble got worse over time. I attributed it to hard work and just getting older. I actually thought it was normal to have back pain every day. I got used to smiling through the pain as a young man. I was in my early 20s when my back spasms and chronic pain started. I come from one of those families where you just “walk it off and move on.” I did not see my Philadelphia chiropractor until my back pain got so bad even I could no longer take it.

No one ever really complains in my family. We just do what we are supposed to do.

Staying Stress Free is Important in My Line of Work

A woman at work told me how her Santa Rosa chiropractor was helping with her stress levels. I had been telling her that I was exhausted from the amount of work that my new position in the company brought about. I really wanted to figure out how to keep pushing and moving in the new position, and I was concerned that would not happen if I didn’t figure out a way to manage my very high stress levels. She said that she really thinks that I would be better off going to see him as soon as possible. She felt there is no sense in suffering and finding that you ruin your job or lose a client after it’s too late.

I had been wanting the position that I had ever since I came to the company that I worked for. I wanted to be the international purchasing manager. I had been a manager for years, and I started out in a purchasing department at a young age. But I never had the added stress of needing to continuously fly overseas to visit different wholesale manufacturers.

Glad We Did Not Go for Back Surgery As the First Thing to Try to Alleviate Pain

Our son was looking forward to a football career. He studies a subject that is intensely interesting to him, but he also intensely pursues football. When he was injured his senior year of high school, we thought he recovered just fine. Then one day he told me that his back was hurting all the time. We had him see our family doctor, an orthopedist, a neurologist and a surgeon. Every one of them had variations of a diagnosis and different recommended treatments. Our family doctor suggested we start with a San Rafael chiropractor he knows before we consider anything as radical as surgery.
