I was was sitting at a picnic table having lunch a month ago, when a man and woman asked if they could sit at the table as well. I told them they were welcome to sit there, and they introduced themselves as Cary chiropractors who were on lunch break like I was. I got to talking to them, and they told me about what they do for a living. They owned the practice that is located just across the street from the park. I then felt safe enough to tell them about my back troubles, and they told me that I should come by to be seen. One of them handed me a business card, and then off they went when their lunch was over.
I guess most people would find it weird that I really haven’t spent much time trying to figure out what’s wrong with my back over the past few years. I’m someone who often lives with pain, and I don’t do much about it until it gets really bad. My back was bad enough that it kept me home sometimes, but not bad enough that I really did anything about it. The two chiropractors that I spoke with that day said that I could find myself in a lot of trouble if I didn’t do something about it. They said that some people can find that their back can get really bad when they ignore pain issues.
Curious about chiropractic treatment, I made an appointment with the practice rather quickly. One of the things that I learned is that I had forgotten what it’s like to feel really good. After just a few appointments, I suddenly did find myself feeling really good. I have been living a painful life for so long, that I had just been putting feeling good out of my mind for too long. I think this was a good sign that I need to pay more attention to the signs that my body gives me instead of ignoring them.
