I called a Carmichael chiropractor in desperation when I missed an important work meeting with a major client due to not being able to even sit up for more than 5 minutes at a time after I threw my back out. My boss is the CEO of the company and he was so angry at me for not being able to show up to that meeting. I was lucky that he didn’t fire me right then and there. Nothing I had been taking for the pain was working for me. The few times that I was able to get up out of bed, I could only shuffle to the bathroom for a few minutes before I had to crawl right back into bed.
My boss knows that I’m an amazing worker. But the meeting that I needed to go to discuss a new project with our client with huge. My boss and I were the only two people in the company working on this project, so it was not good when I was unable to show up. He did the best that he could, and luckily, he won that client over. But there were things that he was unable to answer for the client because I’m the only one that had those answers. He didn’t feel that it would be a good idea for me to be on the phone while he was in the meeting.
I told the chiropractor that I am in a high-powered position for a large company, and I don’t have the ability to just lay around in bed for a week or two at a time. I asked if he could do something for me, and he said that he has many happy clients. Within 24 hours of that visit, I was up and out of bed. It has been really helpful and helping me to not lose my job.
