So I've been visiting the chiropractor for a few weeks now. This week past has been the first since the Christmas break, so I was scheduled for four visits over four days, the most recent adjustment being Friday.
On occasion, my chiropractor would say something like,
"Now you may feel some tenderness here...", or
"It's likely you'll be a bit sore for a day or so... here..."
For the most part, nada.
All day I felt as if I'd been in a car wreck, steam rolled or beaten from the bottom of my shoulder blades to the top of my neck. I was stiff, sore, almost to the point of feeling bruised.
I've been here before, and it's normal. You're probably saying,
"Right, Dave... the doctor's supposed to make you feel BETTER... repeat after me, B-E-T-T-E-R..."
Suffice it to say, it's all part of the process of changing the shape of my spine... for the better.
A hot tub last night made things a might easier to take, but I feel like I should be wearing one of those neck braces.
