I had no idea what a chiropractor would do for me, but I was willing to go and see one if it meant I would find relief from the pain I was experiencing. It all started when I fell down the last two steps of my porch steps. I did not fall completely down, which I guess was fortunate. Still, even with regaining my balance, I knew that something was wrong because of the pain that I felt. I did a search for a Sacramento chiropractor because I wanted to find someone to help me as soon as possible.
This was not one of those aches where you know it will go away after a day or so. It was one of those things where you knew you had done something wrong, and only a professional would be able to help. I was very thankful that I was able to get in to a chiropractor that same day. Since I had a couple of hours to kill before going in for my appointment, I went online to see what kind of information I could find out so I was not walking in there without a single clue as to what was going on.
I am actually glad that I had this time because I learned a good bit about what to expect. I also walked in having a lot more respect for the profession that I may have had otherwise. It was not that I was intentionally not giving them the credit that is due, but I really did not have any idea that they train just as hard as my regular doctor did. In some cases, they actually have more training too, and that is why I am glad that I went to a chiropractor instead of to my doctor. I know my doctor could not have had me feeling better like my chiropractor did!
