My Neighbors Had a Close Call Just Last Week

Last week, a little boy in our neighborhood went missing. I was horrified to learn about it, and I immediately wanted to help look for him. I quickly dressed in warm clothes, grabbed my tactical flashlight and set out into the night with other people who were feeling the same way that I did and wanted to help. I could not imagine the extreme fear his parens must have been going through, but I knew that it must have been fierce, and I hoped to be part of a solution for them.

The liittle boy who went missing was only five years old. He and his parents had moved in a few years earlier. (more…)

This Helped More Than Any Prescription Did

I didn’t even see the car coming toward me when I was on my way to work a couple of months ago. I had looked down for just a moment to change the radio station in my car, and then suddenly I felt a loud impact and a horrific exploding noise. After that, I woke up in the hospital. After many months in the hospital, a Chandler auto accident chiropractor is who helped me finally get rid of the pain that I could no longer deal with anymore.

I have to say that I have never been a big fan of driving. I do it only because I have to get to different places, especially to and from work or the grocery store. I always liked it when my husband takes me places instead. (more…)

Getting over My Needle Nervousness to Try Acupuncture

I could never seem to get beyond the fact that acupuncture uses needles. Then I ended up with diabetes and used needles all the time. Oh boy, that first time was tough. I could not even bring myself to push the button to stick my finger for a glucose check. The first time I stuck myself with an insulin needle was a life changer. Now that I am older and more “needle” experienced, I did not have a problem with going to see a Chicago acupuncture expert. I wanted some relief from pain I was having. It was always there in my shoulder to one degree or another. It would ache and burn. Then when it got worse, it would ache and burn a lot. It would ebb and flow. When it got bad, I had a hard time working. I did not want to have it at all.

I was taking NSAID pain relievers when it was at its peak. When it was easing up, I would just have my wife massage the trigger point in my back, take a hot shower, or use a heated rice bag. I would overheat those rice bags and then burn myself. That could not be more comfortable than acupuncture. (more…)

Best Chiropractor Ratings in Redding Area

My back is jacked up, I don’t really know what is wrong with it, but it is killing me. And it is not just today, but every day I wake up and it is so stiff that I can hardly move. The pain and stiffness combine to almost be overwhelming such that I have trouble focusing and it really detracts from my quality of life. I don’t know what I can do about it, other than to try to find a chiropractor in Redding to go visit.

I haven’t ever gone to a chiropractor before and so I am kind of nervous on the one hand. But at the same time, I don’t really think that I have much to lose by going to see one. (more…)

My Back Would Not Stop Hurting

When I broke my arm when I was a kid, I thought it was the worst pain I would ever feel. Then, when I had a child when I was 24, I knew that was the worst pain I could experience. Well, I was wrong on both accounts. Kids are resilient, and labor pain disappears rather quickly. The pain I had in my back did not disappear for months, and that was extremely painful each and every day. I finally found the right answer when I went to a Sacramento chiropractor, and my only regret was that I did not do this when my back first started hurting. I would have avoided months of pain if I had.

What I did instead was go to my regular doctor. (more…)

I Wanted to Feel Good After My Pregnancy Too

I started seeing a chiropractor in Beverly Hills ten years ago when I was pregnant with my first child. I had developed severe lower back pain when I was about four months pregnant, and I knew that I would not be able to go the entire pregnancy feeling that way. I was able to get into a chiropractor the same week I called, and she was able to help me so much! I had some adjustments done that day, and I went back either once or twice a week for the entirety of my pregnancy.

I thought that once I gave birth, I would feel good again, back to normal. My body had changed though with the pregnancy, and I found myself wanting those adjustments even after my lower back pain was gone. I just did not feel up to par, and I knew that I always felt so much better after one of the manipulations had been done. (more…)

Taking Control of Back Pain Before It Controls You

If you see someone in a cast, you know they endured pain. If you see someone with a bandage on, you know they endured pain. If you see someone take a hit in sports or fall, you know it’s gotta hurt. We can relate to that. However, it is about impossible to relate to pain we cannot see proof of. My back pain did not have any proof on an MRI, but it was still there. It felt like electricity that was burning away my nerve endings. I went to a Cumming chiropractor at the suggestion of my primary care doc. She said that the pain I was describing had to be the result of nerve impingement.

I went through a course of NSAIDs as well as steroids to reduce inflammation. However, my back kept on hurting. I was gaining weight slowly because the pain would not go away and I was sitting around all the time. Well, let me rephrase that. (more…)

Things Are REally Good for My Daughter Now

I wanted to find a Livermore dentist who would let me be part of the appointments when I took my 5 year old daughters for treatments. She is autistic and does not do really well with strangers. I really feared that I would have a lot of trouble finding someone who would allow that, but it really wasn’t that way at all. Everyone that I spoke with understood and had worked on children like my daughter on many occasions, and they were willing to go the extra mile of working with me so that things were better for her.

When I learned the my daughter was autistic when she was just 2 years old, I had no idea that it meant that I would need to devote more time to her than I had needed to with my two boys. (more…)

Top Chiropractor Offices for San Jose

My neck is just killing me right now, and I wish it was just my neck, but it is much more than that. My shoulders are really bad off, and it feels like my range of motion is kind of constricted and that the shoulder joints themselves are very tight. I am going to hopefully see a chiropractor soon for some of these problems and I want to find a chiropractor in San Jose office to visit in the near future. (more…)

Getting Rid of Yeast Infections

Women are accustomed to experiencing a variety of health issues in the course of a given month related to their reproductive health. That is the case for both young and old, whether you are have given birth or have no plans to ever have children. In addition to the typical menstrual cycle, women may experience other common problems throughout the month. At times, vaginal discharge will occur and it is nothing that needs to be addressed, it is a customary part of being a woman. Other times, herbal remedies such as Crystal X will need to be used because the discharge occurring is abnormal and not the kind that is occasional and goes away on its own. More often than not it is candida, better known as a yeast infection.

For most women, when vaginal discharge occurs they will know immediately if it is something to be concerned about. There is a noticeable difference in smell when it is an infection, but also in consistency and color, typically a bit thicker and creamy white or yellow. (more…)
