Chiropractic Care is Preventative Medicine

I was not sure if I really needed to see a chiropractor, but I went along with it just to keep peace in the family. My daughter had been after me for years to see one of the chiropractors in Santa Maria, but I kept saying no. There was just no reason for me to see a doctor like that when I had no back pain at all. She tried to tell me that it is a great preventative resource, but I am nothing if not stubborn. If I am not hurting, I am not going to go and try to stop future pains from coming. It just made no sense to me.

Well, those years of saying no finally caught up to me. It was getting harder to get out of bed every morning. I don’t mean that I couldn’t. It just took me an extra minute for my joints to cooperate with me. I blamed it on arthritis, and I knew that there was nothing that could really be done to help me with that. Well, once again, I was wrong. I finally agreed to go with my daughter to a chiropractor because she was tired of seeing me moving so slow.

Imagine my surprise when I walked out of the first appointment feeling better. It was just a small amount, but it was enough for me to make a second appointment. After that second appointment, I felt even better, so I made that third appointment. It is not often that my daughter can tell me that she told me so, but this is one of those times. If I had gone when she urged me to years ago, my body would have been better prepared to fight off the aging a lot longer. Well, it is better late than never at all, and I am just happy that I am feeling better now.
