So I went to the chiropractor.

    And it was the best fucking thing to happen to my life.

    He was so helpful/kind/friendly. He had me do some very mild stretches to see how well I move. Turns out, I do not move well at all. I always thought my flexibility was normal for someone who is fairly inactive. But my flexibility is far less than average. But after he manipulated/adjusted (cracked) my back and neck, I moved SO much better. It was almost unbelievable.
    Then they did this thing called electrical stimulation. Basically they put the things on (can’t think of what they’re called HA!) They put four on, one on the top left of my back, one on the top right, one on the bottom left, one on the bottom right. Then they place a giant heating pad on top (which got warm so quick, and was so comfortable). Next they turn up the electrical impulses until they’re strong, yet comfortable. Then you basically just lay there and relax. 
    Then they just rubbed me down with Bio-Freeze, and gave me a sheet of exercises.

    I go back Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to see how everything is going.


    Has anyone else tried chiropractic treatment for fibro or any other chronic pain?

                                          Tell me about it (:
