First Trip to Chiropractor
Wednesday, June 30, 2010
This week is full of appts for DH. We saw the chiropractor for the first time on Monday. It was mostly a consultation where he looked at the MRI and other information that had been sent to him. He did a gentle adjustment as he didn't want to start out with too much.
Denny is and has been in pain in the lower back for at least two months now. The pain killers the doctor has been giving him are not even touching the pain. He has a full beard now, since he says standing kills him and he cannot stand long enough to shave.
We see the chiropractor again on Wed. By then we hope he will have a plan for how often to see him. He does do acupuncture and wants to try that also on Wed. He will also give him some exercises to do at home. Denny is sick of feeling pain and willling at this point to do what it takes to help. Our goal is to avoid another back surgery. When we saw the neurosurgeon, he referred him for these alternative treatments. I am very grateful for that and hopefilled that this will make the difference for him.
