As long as I can remember, growing up I have had pain in my neck and back. My back was weak and I had headaches often! I was also diagnosed with scoliosis but not severe enough for surgery. I was teased a lot about my poor posture, that I would be a hunchback or that I would be the kidding the floor by the time that I graduated just to give you an idea about how bad my back was.
Growing up on a little island in Hawaii, I had never head of Chiropractic treatment until I was 25 and pregnant with my third child. A chiropractor had just started coming to our island to treat people and a good friend of mine who was going to see her told me all about Chiropractic care and how it could help me. By then I was suffering with major migraines everyday and didn’t want to keep taking Ibuprofen. I couldn’t function and I suffered terribly.
Right after my first adjustment, I could feel blood flow to my head. Within 20 minutes, my head cleared up and the pain started to subside. I became a believer!
10 years later, I had my sixth child at age 35. I had a quick, natural delivery with no complications. In fact, I went home the very next day from the hospital and was up and moving, cleaning, doing laundry and taking care of my family. I am amazed at how quick I am recovering postpartum. I know a huge part of it is regular Chiropractic care.
I am experiencing better health (even from allergies) and strength in my body. I can visually see my back straighter, my posture has improved and the best of all, relief from pain!! My six children also get regular treatment as part of their health care. My baby was only two days old when she went in for her first check up. None of us are on medication(even for allergies) or have any health issues.
I wish I knew about Chiropractic care and all the benefits while I was growing up. Now I am strong advocate for regular Chiropractic care not just for pain relief but as a part of lifestyle for optimal health and wellness!
