I had known for quite some time that I was suffering from stress. I was talking about this to my mother-in-law, and she told me that I should see the same Camas chiropractor who she goes to see. I reminded her that I don’t have severe back pain. She then pointed out that chiropractic help isn’t just for people who get to the point of severe pain. This kind of help can be proactive for those who don’t have severe troubles, too. It also helps people like me who have complained of tight, achy muscles all over our bodies because we are going through a stressful time in our lives.
My wife and I were busy with our careers for a long time, and at one point, we realized that we should have a child as we had planned many years earlier. We had put it off because we were so busy thinking about work all the time. We knew that we wanted to be parents, and we knew that we should not wait until my wife was in her forties. So, we had a child when she was 38 and I was 39. He was born with all sorts of disabilities. We love him dearly, but having a severely handicapped child can be a roller coaster of emotions and high stress.
My first visit to the chiropractor was very fruitful. I told her the background of how I had come to make an appointment with her. I told her about my son. I told her that I ache all the time and how that adds to my aggravation and stress levels. She gave me a back adjustment and did a lot of other things that helped me to feel better. She told me that I should come in once every week for an appointment. I am really happy that she did because it is working.
