(Community Matters) Went in for my second appointment today. Can’t say I felt any better from my first appointment, though I was feeling better this morning. Walked in without my cane, though still limping slightly (mostly because exiting from car). The doctor had recommended a massage, then an examination.
The therapist explained her process, working to manipulate the specific muscles which were causing the spasms. She knew what she was doing, I could feel the muscles moving. Says she was moving them into place, though it could take several visits. Massage felt great. I think she’s especially gifted. I don’t know whether or not her detection of sadness in the musculature could be right – I feel extraordinarily happy and blessed. When I got off the table, my alignment was worse however (I can tell by how much shorter my right leg appears from my left – going in, probably only 0.5″; after, about 1.5″ to 2″).
The doctor then saw me. His physical manipulations felt even better. After only 15 minutes on his table, I left almost in alignment. I told him I was blogging about this but wouldn’t reveal his name until I decided whether chiropractics has helped or not. Ran into my personal trainer (Cody Butler) who was entering as I was exiting the office; that’s gotta be a good sign.
Cost? Don’t know yet. I only paid $50 co-pay today but think they’ll be billing me for full amount.
