I can’t believe I haven’t been taking advantage of all my health insurance’s benefits. You know, the remedial massage, physio, chiro… all those extras. I’ve started using it this year, but only because I’ve had a crapload of issues with my body.
But anyway, I’ve never seen a chiropractor before and only now that I’m desperate because of my lower back pain and neck pain that I decided I need professional care and not some temporary relief from massages. Had my first consultation and adjustments yesterday. I’m not sure what I expected, but I didn’t expect it. Those adjustments, holy crap it scared the shit out of me. My spine isn’t straight, and I’m not standing straight, nothing seems to be straight these days. So these ‘adjustments’ are meant to help get me back into shape.
Doc: “Wow, this (middle of my back) is like a rock, okay breathe in… and out *CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCCCCCK*”
In reality, I started laughing. Anyway, the doc went ahead and cracked a few more things. Asked me how I felt. “Dizzy.” And I was. I was underwhelmed and overwhelmed. Overwhelmed from those cracks and underwhelmed because I felt the same and my back was still aching. I was so dazed, I just kept nodding.
Post one night now and I AM FEELING AWESOME. MY BACK PAIN… actually I should have told you upfront that I was experiencing some pretty terrible back pains, BUT now it’s gone, as in no more pains!? Magic.
I encourage everyone to review their private health insurance benefits and TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM. I mean, who doesn’t want a nice massage once in a while? And with online services these days, they’re friggin easy to claim.
