Wednesday is "the Chiropractor" Day

Guess who???

Hee hee.

I am more than giddy right now because I am writing to you from my new computer!

Ladies and ladies, I am 24 and I am a PC.

But let's get down to business.

According to our little buddy Wikipedia...

Chiropractic is a health care approach and profession that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system.[1] It is generally considered to be complementary and alternative medicine,[2] a characterization that many chiropractors reject.[3] The main treatment involves manual therapy including manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissue; treatment also includes exercises and health and lifestyle counseling.[4] Traditionally, chiropractic assumes that a vertebral subluxation or spinal joint dysfunction interferes with the body's function and its innate intelligence,[5] a notion that brings ridicule from mainstream science and medicine.

That's the straight forward approach educationally speaking.

Here's my version.

I first had some acupuncture (no needles otherwise I wouldn't have made it.) Then I went on the roller bed. This thing is amazing. I will definitely be moving up from a four at some point.

Then came the part where he adjusted my back. He told me, "now if you've ever heard your knuckles pop that is what it is going to sound like. Don't worry it might be a bit of a shock, but don't worry because it is just gas."


I seriously was afraid that this man was about to adjust my back and we were going to experience a huge fart. Don't get me wrong, I knew scientifically that he meant there was going to be a lot of popping sounds made. But he had to throw the word gas in there and my all to ridiculous panic worry wart mode set in faster than Elisabeth Hassleback can suggest the Republicans have a plan for the economy on the View.

Thankfully there was no stench but there was a lot of popping. I mean a LOT of popping. It felt like 45-50 pops at least.

Then he said, "Okay, we'll do the left side now."


I moved from my stomach to my back then to my side and finally sat up straight. Or if we speaking in popping counts, one might say 14 bagsof popcorn later, I was finished.

He gave me the run down and I am a phase 2 of 4. You want to be a one or better. My right leg is also longer than the left one. Yeah that is a whole other post waiting to happen.

I am beginning to feel a little sore, but am told I will have a wonderful night of sleep tonight.

I had better. I mean hello, I thought I was going to flatulate and that can't be good.

Happy Wednesday!

Oh, I have totally been there. Chiropractic moves, while effective, are just so creepy! Although, I've never heard it described as gas...that would scare me, too!

Love your blog:)
