Chiropractor and SparkPeople work great together

Thursday, November 05, 2009

I had an appointment with my chiropractor today, I have been getting adjusted 2 to 3 times per month sometimes more often for at least 2 years. All of the challenges have really done a lot for me, today I was told that he wants me to come back in a month and told me how proud he is of me for all that I have done to make myself better.
This really made me feel good I was in pretty bad shape when I started going to him
I couldn't reach above my head it hurt my arms when I tried. I couldn't hardly turn my head making it hard to drive especially backing up. And I waddled like a crippled duck.

My back and neck are a lot better I still have a lot of stiffness in the hips when I first stand up but not as much pain, once I get moving the hips are better.

If I keep up with what I have been doing and lose more weight I may get the ok to try running again next spring. emoticon

Thank God for Chiropractors and SparkPeople.

    So glad to hear how much you are improving. Running is one of my goals. I'm too heavy right now, I don't think my body could take the pounding. I think Chiropractors are great too! And yes, they go good with Spark People!

    Girl, you are doing emoticon When I met you in Sept. you were walking all over the center. You are a 'tough' lady. Sounds like you have gotten the right program for you.

    That is wonderful. Ease of movement is so important. I know what you mean about getting your hips going. It's always a surprise, how I'll move each time I get up.

    A year ago, I was in so much pain and headed for a wheel chair or scooter. A 2nd back surgery, repaired more ruptured discs. The nerves are still waking up and I just need to behave myself.

    Good for you --PJ

    You're preaching to the choir here! I have been a chiro patient for almost 20 years and I know it has helped immensely keeping me healthy and very mobile. Once I found Sparks it just seemed to go hand in hand, my weekly adjustment and my daily Spark fix = one, healthy, fit, agile, and feeling young 67 yr. old.
