I was embarrassed when I would go somewhere where I had to sit. I am not a vain person, but I had to carry one of those air pillows around because it hurt me so much to sit down. I had been to a doctor about it, but he could not find anything wrong and told me to exercise that area more, which made no sense to me. Instead, I purchased the air pillow and took it everywhere. Someone at church saw it and told me to look at some chiropractors in Santa Maria if I did not want to cart my pillow around everywhere.
I told her I had already been to a doctor who said he could not help me, but she told me to not discount her suggestion so easily. She told me her own story, and how a chiropractor was able to give her relief instead of the many specialists she had gone to see. I really did not know very much about this branch of medicine, so I went home to learn more. I liked that there is a more natural approach to healing and well being with chiropractic care, so I called and made an appointment with one who is close to where I live.
I learned a lot from my research before going to the office, but I learned even more when I was there. I explained what had been going on, and for the length of time it had been going on as well. The chiropractor looked at some imaging tests he had done, and then he went over a treatment plan with me. It involved adjustments, a few massages, and physical therapy, and it would last for nearly six weeks. I had been having this problem a lot longer than that, so I decided to give it a try. I felt better even before the six weeks were up! I am now a believer, and I have a new friend in the person who told me about this too.
