Sore Back from a Fall

I hate having to rush to class in the morning, because I have to pedal as fast as I can on my bicycle without hitting anything or getting hit. A couple of weeks ago, I woke up with only 10 minutes to get to class, and it normally takes me 20 minutes to get there. I took every shortcut I could think of and did everything but break the traffic laws. Right as I was getting close to the class building, I fell off my bicycle. I still made it to class, but I needed a chiropractor in University Place much later.

I was able to get up and lock by bicycle with just a minute to get inside. I sat through the entire class period, and as I did, I felt a pain in my back that would only keep getting worse.

Pain from the Careless Driver

I would be in so much pain right now if it weren’t for the help of the Oceanside chiropractors. I was in a car accident that left me with a lot of back pain because a careless driver ran into the back of my car. I had never been in a car accident before because I was always a safe driver, but sadly everyone else on the road isn’t as safe as I am. After the accident, I felt fine for a couple of days, but things started to get worse. First a small pain appeared, and then it progressed into a larger pain.

I took some over the counter medicine to alleviate the pain, but this was only a temporary measure. I made an appointment with the chiropractor and in the meantime I tried to move as little as possible to prevent the pain from getting worse.

A Chiropractor is Making Me Feel Better

One minute, I was driving down the road, listening to some music and just happy to be done with work for the day. The next thing I remember was immense pain as I looked at the pile of cars around me. A drunk driver had run a red light, and he hit six of us. I was the first one hit so I took the brunt of the impact. I knew exactly what a jack in the box felt like after that, because I had the worst case of whiplash. Thankfully, a chiropractor in Pleasanton was able to help me recover from that.

An ambulance took me to the hospital, and they kept me overnight for observation. I had pain meds through the IV, so I didn’t realize just how much it was going to hurt when I no longer had that. Before getting released, the doctor advised me to see a chiropractor, which I had already planned on doing.

I Need to Be Able to Travel on Foot Easily Without Back Issues

One of the things I did first when I moved here was to find a San Francisco chiropractor for myself. I had been seeing one for years in my hometown, and I felt that it would be impossible to go without seeing one here. I have had too many problems with my back to not find one. This is especially true now that I will be walking to work. Around here, most people who have cars are people who come in from other cities. Those of us who live within the city itself walk often. And that means that you need to stay fit and strong.

I had always wanted to move to California, and I made it my mission to make it happen.
