Poor, poor me.
He put a lift in my shoe and I felt a lot of relief, but I still continued to get some flare ups and it didn’t feel right to just accept my back always being out and wear a shoe lift the rest of my life.
I could probably BE a chiropractor with how much I know.
They were nice and did the little scan and told me some stuff about my atlas and how if that gets out it messes the whole body up. All I heard was blah, blah, blah, a million visits. Then he peaked my interest when he said they saw a lot of people with vertigo and dizziness. What? That’s what I have. How do you fix it? Can you fix me? I used the coupon they gave me to get a free first exam the next week. My first visit was annoying because they made me watch all these videos about how chiropractic care was so important and I was SO over it.
But then the little video said one thing.
Wouldn’t be awesome if both of my issues were actually connected?
Holy cow, how awesome would it be if a little tap on my atlas would fix my dizziness AND low back. Well, at this point I am still working on both. I have been feeling less dizzy, but those nerves have been compressed in my atlas for a while now so I am patiently trying to heal my dizziness completely and I plan to do some physical therapy to train my vestibular system to work correctly.
SO…..yes I am visiting the surgeon next week yet again, and we shall see what he says. At this point, Dr. Arter(chiropractor at my current place) thinks he may do a mini surgery and clean up all the bone spurs and scar tissue and create more room for those nerves…..OR….maybe he’ll recommend a double disc replacement at which point I’ll collapse into a heap at the thought of it.
- I TOTALLY believe in chiropractors, the only thing is, there are SO MANY different methods and if you don’t feel better within 6 weeks, try another method because it really can work.
- Surgery can ruin a lot and can make you just need more surgeries. You think your pain is bad? Well, it can always get worse. So be careful in the surgery department.
I don’t mind having adversity in my life, I just want to be done with this one.
