When I told my doctor about the pain in my back, he asked if I had injured it in any way. To my knowledge, I didn't. I had not been in any accidents nor had I fallen or anything. I just woke up one day and it was hurting. I had just assumed that I slept wrong, but it was still hurting the following day. Some days, it is more severe than others, but I knew I had to get it checked. He told me I should see a chiropractor in Mesa because there was nothing that he could see that was wrong.
He did offer to have X-rays taken, but he explained that a chiropractor would be able to do that as well. Since a chiropractor is trained in this, I figured that might be the way to go. I went home and started researching the different chiropractors in the area. I wanted to make sure that I went to one that was well respected and had actually made a difference in the lives of the people who went to him or her. It did not take me long to find the one I wanted to go to after reading a lot of testimonials from different patients.
I was able to get in that same week to the chiropractor that I wanted to see, and he told me that a lot of people don't suffer injuries but still have back and neck pain. He did take some X-rays, and he told me that I was out of alignment. He did my first treatment that day, and I walked out feeling better than I had in weeks. I go to him twice a week now, and he has really made a difference in my comfort level. I am so glad my doctor suggested that I see a chiropractor!
