When I got home from last weekend’s bachelorette party I had the worst crick in my neck. I blamed it on sleeping on a crappy futon mattress or just staying up too late or drinking too much. Or maybe a mixture of all? Ugh.
It got worse and worse and the straw that broke the camel’s back was the headache that lasted for three solid days. That’s when I decided it was time to call in backup, I decided to go see a Chiropractor.
I found one that was by my house and came highly recommended from some of my co-workers. I got there early and filled out a ton of paperwork and took a bunch of x-rays. When I saw the doctor he asked when my accident was. Wait, WHAT??
He said that the x-ray of my neck showed an old Whiplash injury and that was why I was in so much pain. He also said that was why my back was hurting too, I had been out of align for so long it just hurt all the way down. Ouch!
I don’t even remember being in any kind of accident where I got hurt or got Whiplash?? He said it was years ago and I would probably remember later. I sure hope so because I am completely baffled.
My treatment plan is to get adjusted as many times as it takes to get my neck to curve back the way it’s supposed to. I got my first adjustment that day and I can honestly say that it was the single most scary and relieving thing of my life. He popped my neck both right and left and then uses this machine thing to work the kinks out of my neck. I don’t even really know how to describe it, LOL.
All I can say is that it worked. I could move my neck both right and left with minimal pain when I left the office!
I had my second adjustment Wednesday and it went even better than my first. I knew what to expect so I wasn’t as nervous. I also got to lay on a massage table for 10 minutes before I got adjusted and that was pure heaven. I want one of those tables in my house ASAP.
I go see my Chiropractor again next week and I can’t wait!!
Have you ever had Whiplash??
