My belly button has never been centered. (I know it’s a strange reference point, but if you look down and it’s not in the middle -you notice)
I’ve had Scoliosis since I was a child. I’ve never seen a chiropractor, or had x-rays …until last week. Then, I found out the severity. I knew it was bad but seeing where I was, & the true extent of this diagnosis that I had received in grade school from my school nurse…. I was shook, ok? My first session between the paperwork, X rays, my first adjustment, and therapy (a tens unit) took like two hours. First appointments everywhere are usually like this.
**** If it’s your first visit go on a Tuesday or Thursday, they’re less busy. ****
I left that appointment with the new found ability to roll my shoulders back and lift my chest (you know how people slouch in chairs? That’s how I would always stand, trying to make my body straight would send me it to tears) I was impressed & in pain.
**it hurts, we are moving, adjusting, repositioning my hips and spine. It’s going to hurt, but I don’t want to walk around with slouched shoulders forever SO HERE WE ARE!**
Visits after the first one move quickly, if they’re super busy it may take an hour max [in my experience] .
Three visits in and I looked down.
My belly button was in the center. Guys I cried. Today was my fourth visit. It’s improving, I’ve noticed differences every-time I go. In the way my body sits, how one his feel more forward. I’m more conscious of it now.
Still, Mr.White reviews your x-rays, comes up with a plan, walks you through everything & is more than willing to answer any questions. The staff is friendly & welcoming.
The hardest part, of all of this, is retraining yourself. Think shoulders back , chest up, stomach muscles engaged, recheck your posture. It’s something that was never engrained into my brain.
I recommend going.
**Regardless of how your back feels, it could feel better. **
The best part of this whole experience, is Mr.White his personality is awesome & his hands might be magic. The second best part, genie rub!
