What should I expect?
I'm a little nervous, only because I am not sure what to expect.


Update: I am back from my appointment. I was adjusted and a tens (I hope that's right) machine was used. It felt amazing! It could have went on forever. 

I felt better for a little while, but sitting back at my computer desk has it sore again. I go back on Friday, there's massage therapy there also, my insurance won't pay for that, but it might be worth it to pay out of pocket. 


She said the pain is just due to my change in activity level. (Going from 1 work out to two per day)

I only went when I was a child and I LOVED it. It was probably because I got a lot of attention and they made it fun.

I heard it can hurt at first but then leads to you feeling much better. I hope it goes well.

Also did you ever do your hair up in that style you posted?

No, I just got my hair done like usual. Maybe next time.

I hope it doesn't hurt, but I guess it can't hurt any worse than I do now.

Any good chirco will do x rays first to make sure what he feels is right.

Please forgive my spelling, I'm worn out today.

I've always wanted to go, but I'm kind of afraid too. Lol, have you seen what they do?? It looks like they're trying to pop your head off.

Ok, that wasn't helpful...

Damn! This boring suburban girl was gonna live vicariously through your hair! Well I'm sure it looks great anyway.

Look at the chiro this way...if it works for you, great. If not, you can start to narrow down what DOES work.

I am not sure, my hip and low back has been hurting for a week, and it's interfering with my work outs.

Everyone I asked said it sounded more like a chiropractor thing, then an M.D. problem

It's going to get worse before it gets better. Once it got better it was a whole lot better.
