I was trying to think of what I could get my grandmother for her birthday a few months ago. I decided that a trip to the zoo was in order, as she is quite active and it had been years since she had been there. The day was great right up until we left the zoo. She stumbled in the parking lot, and she went down. She laughed about it, but I could tell that she was in pain. Her back was hurting, so I took her to a chiropractor in Peoria once I called and explained what had happened.
I thought that I was going to have to make an appointment for later on in the week, but they were very receptive to my gram’s needs. She thought I was going on about it for naught, but I explained that she is my only gram, and I was going to take care of her the best way I knew how. She insisted that I go with her to the appointment, which was just a given in my mind anyway. When we got there, it was not long before we were taken back to a room, where the chiropractor joined us.
We were both surprised at how quickly everything went. We have the same doctors and dentist, and we usually have to wait at least 30 minutes or so before we are seen. It can get pretty frustrating, so this was a nice change. The chiropractor gave my gram an adjustment on her back, and she said she already felt better from it. I thought she was just saying that to make me feel better, but I could tell that she was moving better already. I had no idea just one adjustment could make that much of a difference! She still goes to that chiropractor, but not for the same problem. She just wants to feel even better, and he has said he can help her with that!
