Some Things Are Better Left Alone

I’m usually not the type of person who will get into accidents and scrapes, so when I do get an injury, I take it more seriously than anything else. I recently had an injury so bad that I needed to get treatment from a Sacramento chiropractic center. I was doing some cleaning in my home by sorting through some old boxes. These boxes had been in my attic since I moved into the home and I never bothered to do anything with them except let them collect dust. While moving a heavy box, I injured my back. Continue reading

I Feel Much Better in My Shoulder Area Now

When I used to think about chiropractors, I always associated them with car accidents. While I knew that a lot of their patients were people who were injured in wrecks, I also knew that some were results of falls and trips too. What I did not know though was that a chiropractor can help with so many other things too, which I found out when I was referred to a chiropractor in Fort Myers for pain in my shoulder. I had an old work injury that I just figured played a role in it, but it had been getting increasingly worse as the days turned into weeks and then months. Continue reading

Trying to Find a Good Chiropractor

I was not sure what to do, but it soon became apparent that the doctors really could not do a lot for me. I was having all sorts of trouble with my back, especially in the morning. I was hardly able to get out of bed in the morning because my back is so stiff. At any rate I started to work for a Sacramento chiropractic clinic after I realized that this was probably the only real solution to the problem. A doctor can give you drugs or they can talk about surgery, but neither of those is likely to have a happy ending. The pain pills at the best are only a way to mask the problem and obviously they are going to offer the potential for catastrophe. It is amazing how many people in this country get started on the road to a heroin overdose by taking a prescription for pain pills from a doctor. I actually know a number of people that have very serious problems because of these pills and I want to avoid becoming one of them. Continue reading

Don’t Let Calculus Form on Your Teeth, Especially if You Are a Diabetic

Having diabetes stinks. It has a negative affect on every single one of your body’s systems. It can even ruin your teeth. I was having trouble with my gums loosening away from a tooth on occasion. It made for pain and swelling. It really hurt to brush the area when it got bad. I went to a Fremont dentist for some treatment to get it fixed. I brush twice per day and floss twice per day no matter what. I use an antiseptic mouthwash, and I even rinse with hydrogen peroxide on occasion when my gums start to act up.

It corresponds to my blood glucose control. The tighter the control, the better my oral health. My dentist actually says my brushing and flossing are resulting in impeccable dental care. I do not have any cavities forming, and I only have trouble with my gums when my blood glucose levels climb out of normal tight control. When my teeth are cleaned, they do not have to do all kinds of scraping. Continue reading

I Got My Life Back

I was not sure if a Cumming chiropractor was the right person for me to see, but I decided that I had nothing to lose just by looking at a couple of websites to see if one could help me. I was able to find one easily enough, and I liked the one I picked for one specific reason. His site did not say that he would be able to heal me. Instead, it just said that I could come in for an appointment, have an evaluation done, then find out if it was a good fit for me.

I also liked the fact that I was able to send him an email to ask a few questions first. Continue reading
