Chiropractic has always been part of my life. My mom started taking us to the chiropractor at age five as she understood a healthy nervous system was essential for growing children. However, it wasn’t until I turned twenty-one that I understood how much of an impact chiropractic can make.
After a long hike with a cumbersome pack, I started having horrible chest pain–so bad that I quickly got to the doctor as I convinced myself it was something awful. The doctor said I was fine and he couldn’t find anything wrong. I was relieved I wasn’t having a heart attack, but the pain made it difficult to breathe, stand straight, and sleep.
I got myself to a chiropractor and explained my symptoms. He quickly determined that my ribs were out of place, causing the pain. After a few adjustments, I was pain-free!
