… After an emergency visit to the chiropractor today, plus a second adjustment this evening. ugh. This was my first visit to the chiropractor in almost 2 decades.
I have been so tightly locked up with my right shoulder to my right ear – and my head turned to look over my right shoulder. It started out as a kink in my neck on Saturday, and has progressively gotten worse each morning since. Today I spent half the day nearly in tears.
I was able to get into the doctor’s office this afternoon – maybe partly because my dad was their first patient, and has been loyal to the practice for going on 25 years. I went there a few times as well in my early teens – but it’s been a looooong time since then! Since it has been so long, I was expecting Dr Buller to be on the elderly range of the age spectrum. Ooops! It’s funny how the young mind sees anyone over 25 as “old”. I was shocked to find that the doctor is a few years younger than my dad.
I had between 0 and 5 degrees of motion in many areas. No duh. And the x-rays showed a lot of serious misalignments – so much that I could even see them without the doctor pointing them out. I went through my first adjustment and was sent home to ice the area a few times before I came back in at the end of the day. The difference was almost immediate. And was even better after the second one.
– I also had my church group pray for me tonight and saw a noticeable relaxation in my neck/shoulder muscles after that as well. I want to give props not only to the excellent chiropractic care of Dr. Jeffrey Buller, but also to the healing power of Jesus. Not everyone believes in that, but I do.
I still can’t tilt my head forward much to look down. But maybe that’s a good thing. I should be looking up more often anyways!
