I was not sure what to do about the pain I was experiencing on a regular basis. I had so many people telling me different things. Some told me to just accept it, that I was not a young spring chicken anymore. Well, that is true, but I am certainly not over the hill either! Others told me try different medications or supplements, and one even suggested exploratory surgery. That scared me to even think about it. A couple of them see a San Jose chiropractic doctor on a regular basis, and they were the most convincing that this was definitely the way to figure out the pain and to see if there was anything that could be done about it.
They both go to the same chiropractor, so that is the one I decided to go to as well since they were both so happy with the entire staff there. I was able to get in relatively quickly, and I could see why my friends were happy patients there. I had to fill out a medical history form, and by the time I did that and gave them my insurance card, it was time to head back to the examination room.
The chiropractor put me at ease right away. He has a really nice bedside manner, which is a huge plus in my book. He did a physical examination so he could determine exactly where the pain is. He also took some X-rays, and then he was able to share a couple of different treatment plans. I went with the one that he recommended the most, which was adjustments twice a week, a massage once a week, and home exercises on a daily basis. He showed me the exercises in his office, and I followed the treatment plan exactly as it was. That was months ago, and I no longer have any pain!
