I went to see a Chiropractor on Sunday. My back was hurting from the week before so I went to see one that a good friend of mine recommended. You could say I was a bit nervous as it was my first time in seeing a 'bone doctor'.
Anyways, to share my experience, I was hurting really badly on Wednesday the same week. Hence, by Sunday, I had no choice but to get it seen by a doctor.
The doctor is a chinese lady from Taiwan by the name of Jennifer. She did her Chiropractor studies for a total of five years, so she is definitely trained in that area.
The doctor had me do a few body movements to determine the level of my injury. Then I was made to lie on my front on this 'long chair' which she used to do a few adjustments to my spine.
I was told that the spinal chord was hurting the muscles around my pelvis bone. So all three areas were inextricably somehow affected, where the muscles were badly inflamed.
By Tuesday (the next appointment), I was feeling a lot better. The parts which were hurting was still tender, but they did not hurt as much. So yes, my spine did respond well to the treatments rendered.
I ended up making the decision to purchase a 12 visit card for about 480aud (price as at the time of writing). If you have private insurance, you can make a claim of some of the monies paid.
As my spinal chord is not exactly in the best possible shape (regardless of whether I have subscribed to health insurance), it still is a good investment. Compared to beauty services, this is something that will affect my health in the long term, so it was a no brainer decision.
The initial consultation fee is 55aud if you tell the doctor you are recommended by another patient. (meaning me) *haha*.
My next appointment is this coming Friday. We shall see the progress of my spinal health in the weeks to come.
