A Car Accident Injury is Serious Business

I needed to find a chiropractor in Petaluma due to an interesting injury related to a car accident. It wasn’t your typical injury in that I wasn’t even driving the vehicle. The injury occurred while I was attempting to change the oil in my older vehicle. I didn’t take the necessary safety precautions while jacking the car up and the vehicle fell on me while I was underneath it trying to get the oil pan plug off with a wrench. Had I been doing anything other than lying flat on the concrete, I probably would have been killed when the car dropped.

Still, I hurt my arm badly in the accident. I went the usual route by going to the emergency room to figure out the extent of my injuries. Nothing was broken, thank goodness, but I had an extremely serious muscle pull that require physical therapy and a cast that I had to wear for several months. I went through the entire treatment only to discover that the muscle didn’t seem to work correctly. I still had a great amount of pain and my range of motion seemed to be negatively affected.

I Am Almost Healed Up

I was not even moving at the time and I never saw this guy, in fact he was drunk and apparently running from imaginary police officers. That was what one of the witnesses said. There were around a dozen cars in front of me waiting on a light at a busy intersection. This guy hit me from the rear and spun me into a red pick up truck in the other lane. I ended up with a big lump on my head and a bunch of cuts and bruises, and eventually a Huntington chiropractor had to work on my back. That is the end of the story. I was knocked out for a moment I think, or at least I did not recall exactly what happen at the point in time between the first blow and the next one. Other people had to tell me that the truck had hit me. I was thinking that I had gotten pretty lucky at the least it did not seem half so bad as it could have been. I had a little hitch in my gait, but I was able to walk away.

How Chiropractic Has Kept My Back Pain Just a Memory for Years

With all my years of working experience I noticed that if your back or feet hurt, you cannot do your best on the job. The same goes for headaches too. I am rendered pretty much non-functional at work if my head is pounding, and a lot of headaches are caused by back problems. I used to have severe back pain and headaches. I hurt my back once to the degree that I could not rise up out of bed or even reach my wallet in my pants. I went to a San Francisco chiropractor to be treated for whatever I did to my back. I never remembered any specific incident of wrecking my back, but it hurt really bad nonetheless.

I really dislike being down. I like to be ready to do my part no matter what it is. Hurting my back knocked me for a loop.

An Apple for the Teacher, Coach and Friend

I owe a lot to the woman who taught me how to change my lifestyle and improve my health.  I was a depressed divorcee with three children under the age of 10 who had to juggle a busy work schedule and activities for my kids.  I spent so much time at drive thru windows that when I finally tried to cook a meal in my own kitchen, I had to brush the cobwebs off the stove.  My diet was out of control and my waistline proved it.  I’m so happy that I found the perfect item on Groupon to express my gratitude and appreciation while I still had the chance.

I had been putting off making changes because I didn’t think I could do it.  But a chance meeting at a supermarket changed all that.  Candace was searching for some items in the bulk bin section and asked if I knew when the bags were.  I had never used the bulk bin before so we searched for them together.  She scooped some quinoa into a bag and wrote the item number on it.  Then she measured some brown rice into the other.  We chatted as we stood there and from that conversation I learned about whole grains, protein sources, how water aids the body and more.  We exchanged numbers and went on our separate ways.  Fortunately, we did stay in touch.  I found out she was a personal trainer and helped me get fit for a fraction of her usual fee.   Now I’m eating better, working out and the kids are on board with the lifestyle changes as well.

When Candace told me she was moving to another state, I wanted a way to show her that I really appreciated the changes she helped me achieve.  And then I remembered that she had a charm bracelet.  I quickly searched Groupon for jewelry and found just what I wanted at Kay Jewelers.  My dear friend will be leaving soon, but when she does, she’ll have an additional charm on her bracelet.  A silver apple that symbolizes the healthy changes she helped me achieve nearly two years ago.
