I have been getting chiropractic care for over a decade now.

I had my first appointment with a chiropractor when I was twenty five years old. I got my first adjustment. I found things the natural doctors or the wholistic wellness route was the best. I never trusted doctors. I feel like the doctors that train as chiropractors are really healers. I had a chiropractor who cared about me enough as a patient to treat my curved spine by putting special hot packs on my back. The doctor even put a special device to treat my spine and the curve in it. I have been seeing him since maybe 2012 or 2013. This man is a healer that knows and understands things about medicine and science that I don’t understand. I so appreciated him doing what he did to treat my back. I’m feeling better and I have an adjustment tomorrow morning at 11 am. The way to healing is through wholistic avenues not medication though it also helps. I know when the doctor explained what he was doing to treat my spine I felt such a feeling of gratitude to him as a doctor caring about me as a patient and treating my sciatica that was once bad scoliosis I had as a teenager. I had such bad back pain that you wouldn’t imagine. I remember how bad I felt sleeping with the worse pains in my neck and my back. I knew by the time I was twenty five that when I had found my first chiropractor I was on the road to feeling better. I dealt with severe back pain for a decade before I had my first experience with a female chiropractor. My weight is also a factor but I’m happy to say I’m almost 50 pounds down in the past nine months. I lost my weight on my own following a vegetarian or pescetarian diet.
