When I was a kid my mom worked for a chiropractor.
Going there was a treat for me, it was one of the
few times in my life where I felt like I could breathe.
The only time I went was after an
My back and chest were so tight I couldn't cry.
After I went back to work I tried going to a different
chiropractor. Technical competence wasn't enough
to retain me as a patient, a massage therapist helped
me find someone else & I started referring others to him.
Then I hurt my back at work on a sunny Friday morning.
By the time my shift was done I had pain radiating down
my left leg
. A manager at work seemed skeptical
of my injury claim. Feeling low and in pain I thought
I could go back to a chiropractor I had seen before. I
hadn't liked him, but I was desparate for care.
Most of my chiropractors have been tall, athletic,
young, and decent looking. I'm used to joking around
with them and hearing about their wives. At first
I ignored the man standing near the counter, then
I learned that he was going to be seeing me.
For the first time in my life I couldn't look a
practitioner in the eye. He took me back, asked
me a lot of questions, offered to carry my bag,
but nobody touches it except for me.
but I hated him for systematically destroying mine.
While I was laying down on the table he told me
he was glad I had come in when I did. I almost
, but some how managed to breathe.
It was one of the most validating things anyone
has ever said to me and I loved him for that.
The other day my friend was telling me that he's
had good chiropractors. I agreed, mine have
traditionally helped me tremendously. But before
this I hadn't had anyone who could read my
emotions the way that this guy can #scary
You can't be nice to me and expect to get away
with it for long. There were times when I
had longings that I knew were reserved
for the bedroom, the playroom, and other
flat surfaces. He had a right to know so I told him.
I figured he'd pass me off to his boss, but to
my surprise he agreed to keep me as a patient.
Then his boss told me that I was no longer going
to be seeing him. Nothing had happened, but I
behind the decision.
It's one thing to fall for a pretty face and
quite another to find someone who feels
like a soul connection. Yesterday I called the
front desk to tell them that I wouldn't be
returning as a patient; progress abandoning perfection.
Although he knows where I work, I don't think
I'm ever going to see him again, that makes
me sad, but I know intuitively that
refusing to let his boss control and degrade
me was the right thing to have done.
Morale of my story: when searching for
the very best in chiropractic care
make sure that your new provider
reduces the pain in your low back and neck
a fresh hole in your heart
