I had never been to a chiropractor in Pleasanton, but that did not stop me from wanting to go to one for the first time. I know that some of my family thought that a chiropractor was just a waste of my time, but I was tired of being in pain all of the time. I did not want to live on pain pills just to get through the days, so I made the decision to go to one. I figured the most I had to lose was a couple of hours, and that was well worth it to me.
As it turned out, it is one of the best decisions I have made for myself in years. I was at the point where it hurt me to sit in just about any position. When I would sit for a prolonged period of time, I would often cry because of the pain when I would try to stand up. I had to stop going to church because I was not able to sit in the hard pews any longer, and even taking a pillow did not help me. I felt like I was missing out on so much in life, so I decided to take control back.
The chiropractor did a complete examination on that first visit and also ran a lot of tests. He wanted to make sure exactly what the problem was before he devised a treatment plan moving forward. I spent a lot of time there that first day, but it turned out to be the best thing. He was able to determine exactly what was wrong with me, and I started seeing him three times a week for treatment. I started feeling better within the first couple of weeks, and I am so hopeful that I am going to be able to start resuming everything that I had to stop doing because of my back pain.
