Over the summer I unfortunately pinched a nerve near my right shoulder blade while exercising. It caused me pain for WEEKS which constantly woke me up at night. My entire right arm would go numb and tingle from my shoulder, all the way down to my fingertips. I tried to stretch it out, work it out, and I even got a professional massage but there was no relief.
I sought out advice from my Facebook friends and was surprised by how many people suggested that I see a chiropractor. Luckily, some kind friends referred me to a chiropractor that they love and trust. (When choosing your doctor, please use a reference. If you live in my area, I would be happy to refer you!)
I have learned so much about how the body works since I have started my chiropractic care. Did you know that getting regular adjustments can help with acid reflux and heartburn? Even eczema?!? I have neither problem but hey. Good to know.
I have also learned that going to a chiropractor is like maintenance for your body. Just like we get the oil changed on our cars to keep the engine running properly, we need to have regular adjustments to keep our bodies operating properly and to the best of their ability.
Back to my pinched nerve- I started to see a noticeable difference in my pain level after just a few adjustments. After three months, I am now completely PAIN FREE!!! I get to enjoy uninterrupted sleep and my workout is not being compromised due to pain. I am so thankful for the great chiropractic care I have received.
Have you ever used a chiropractor? I would love to hear about your experience! 🙂
