I went to my first chiropractor appointment EVER last friday. This spine has gone un-cracked for 27 years, but since Oliver was born I feel like the hunch back of Notre Dame. My back has been really sore and tight from nursing and carrying the damn car seat around
(with a not so light baby in it) not to mention that I pushed a 8+ pounder outta of me a couple of months ago, I was feeling real jammed up- and real overdue for an adjustment.
Now part of the reason I have never been before was because the sound of my bones cracking makes me want to hurl. It completely grosses me out, but I went on friday thinking I could handle it and really it's for only a second not even like a milli-sec. Turns out I can't handle the crack, when she adjusted my neck I let out the most horrendous noise so for my next appointment I opted for a less crack-y approach and it was much more enjoyable. Now some people
(Guy included) need the crack, this lady however does not. I am on a 3 times a week for 4 weeks schedule, then once a week for 8 weeks then 1-2 a month.
I am really excited for this new addition to our lifestyle, Guy has been getting adjustments for the last month and it's making such a difference. It totally makes sense to take care of your spine and central nervous system which affects your whole body!
Here's some food for thought....
