A Chiropractor Helped Me with My Injury

Playing ball can be tough on a person. I don’t care if it is baseball, football, volleyball or even a friendly neighborhood game of kickball, it can hurt. The reason I mentioned kickball is because that is the game where I hurt my back and needed to see a chiropractor in Santa Barbara. I like to tell people about my sports injury because it usually brings a smile to their face, since kickball is such an easy game. I kicked that ball so hard that I landed on my back because of the momentum, and there is video of it that I will never be able to live down now.

A couple of people helped me up, and I just sat on the sidelines for the rest of the game. I thought that I just needed that, but the next day proved me wrong when pain was the first thing I felt when I woke up. I was stiff as a board, and I knew that I needed help. I contacted a chiropractor who is not that far away from me, and I was beyond thankful that I was able to get in that same day to be seen.

The chiropractor had to take care of the necessary things first, like insurance forms and a medical history. There was also an examination, but all of those things were expedited because of the amount of pain that I was in. I liked that their focus there was on my pain rather than drawing things out. I had my first ever adjustment that day, and i felt something pop, which he had already explained may happen. What else happened was that I felt an immediate release of some of the pain that I was in. I went back three more times, and I swear that I feel better now than I did even a few years ago. I’m ready for my kickball rematch now too!
