Today I visited the chiropractor for the first time. Dr. Dana was recommended to me by Lynn as someone who is caring and careful. We spent the first 30 minutes of my appointment going over anything that might be troubling me. We talked about how stress affects our bodies and then our muscles learn how to compensate. It felt strange listing every single little thing that I feel is "wrong" with my neck, wrists, knees and shoulders, but this gave her more information on what to help me resolve.
Next Dr. Dana used applied kinesiology to move my legs and arms to see what was working and what wasn't. It was fascinating to talk about how everything is interconnected in our bodies. She could press a spot on my back and make my hip work differently. Very interesting!
I have some soreness from some of the stretching and muscle activation, but nothing awful. I promised Dr. Dana that I would walk this afternoon and not sit too long. I also have to drink lots of water to flush the toxins.
I'm glad I took Lynn's recommendation to try something new! Here's to moving forward with better health.
