When I was involved in an accident a couple of years ago, I didn’t even think about hiring an auto accident attorney in Sacramento at first. The facts of the accident were so cut and dried that I didn’t think I needed one. However, when the insurance company offered me a settlement that barely covered my lost wages from it, I knew I needed some help. It was not that I was being greedy, because that was the furthest thought from my mind. I just knew that I had a long road ahead of me, and that settlement offer was not taking that into account.
I was not even sure if I would be able to go back to work yet. I was still in physical therapy trying to regain the strength in both of my arms as well as my right leg. (more…)
My uncle is a foreman for a construction crew. Some might think that his job is easier since he just oversees a bunch of workers, but I think he works harder than any two of his workers put together. There used to be some nights when he would come home so sore that he didn’t even want to eat dinner. He would soak in the tub for a bit, then he would usually lay down with a heating pad. That all changed when I convinced him to visit a chiropractor in Campbell CA.
He honestly had no desire to see this type of doctor, but that was just because he didn’t know anything about them. He did not realize that they go to school for many years and actually take a lot of classes that primary care physicians must take. (more…)
We have a family with many hunters in it. When they visit, they often bring some of the meat from their hunts. So when our extra freezer stopped working it was imperative that we get some major appliance repair in Sacramento to get the freezer working again. We have a lot of venison and wild boar that would go to waste if we didn’t get it working in time. We could not afford to buy a new one anytime soon, and we hoped that it would not come down to that in the end.
While trying to work on the freezer himself, my husband ended up breaking something inside the freezer. That was when I told him that we needed to get someone who really knew what they were doing to fix it before he ended up breaking something permanently. (more…)
I like golfing. I really like it. I have played golf since I was about 12, and that was 50 years ago. I used to be able to do 36 holes and then go to work at my full time job. Now that I am retired, I want to play all of the time. However, I am not quite up to 36 holes two times per week. I tried that a couple of weeks ago and needed my chiropractor in Mesa to fix my back so I could at least golf nine holes in a couple of days.
I really wore myself out in the heat and on that back nine twice in one day. I was competing against my family. My wife, daughter and our two daughters-in-law played 18 holes. Then my sons challenged me to another 18 while the girls all stayed back at the clubhouse for massages, mani-pedis and more. By the time dinner rolled around, my back was hurting. I really threw something out in my upper back when I was trying to get out from behind a tree on that doglegged par 5 on the back nine. (more…)
I employed the services of a San Jose chiropractor after an auto accident left me with a bad case of whiplash. I always thought that condition was sort of a fancy name for pulled muscles in your neck when your head is suddenly moved forwards or backwards with great force. I recently suffered whiplash when I was sitting at a stop sign and a teenager who was paying more attention to their phone than the road plowed into my car. Sure enough my head went forwards and backwards with force and the pain in my neck set in immediately.
It was only later that I learned whiplash can be a lot more than a few strained muscles. Some people can suffer excruciating headaches and nerve pain. The unlucky people can have chronic neck pain for months or even years afterwards. I know the headaches I was having were pretty intense, but the neck pain was worse and it didn’t feel like a pulled muscle. It felt like serious nerve pain. After it didn’t vanish in a couple of weeks, my wife went online and found a chiropractor clinic and made an appointment because something had to be done. (more…)
