Remember a few days ago when I talked about seeing a chiropractor for my back problems? Well, I went back to review my x-rays and yes, my poor spine and neck are totally out of alignment. So we went over my treatment plan and how much it would cost. Insurance doesn’t cover any of it, which isn’t surprising. Unfortunately, there is no way we can afford how much they were asking.
Plus, I admit it. I got cold feet.
I always get cold feet when I think about someone adjusting my spine, and even though I’m sure they know what they’re doing, I can’t help but wonder what if they mess up? What if adjusting my spine exacerbates my condition? I’ve heard stories about people going to a chiropractor and feeling absolutely wonderful after their spines are adjusted, then BAM! A few days later, their back locks up on them and they are in even worse pain than before.
Now, I’m not going to totally write off seeing this chiropractic office because the doctors there are so nice and friendly. But I’m going to give it some more thought and perhaps if the pain gets too bad, I’ll make an appointment with my family doctor and see if there’s anything he can do for me besides giving me medicine.
In the meantime, I will continue to do my yoga, which is awesome. Have I told you guys I’ve lost about 13 pounds since January? That’s right. Only 30 more pounds to go until I’m back down to my pre-pregnancy weight… but I’ve set my goal for 40 pounds. I will get there! Just wait!
