When my mom told me that she was having trouble sleeping, I thought it might be time for her to buy a new mattress. I knew that the one she had was at least a dozen years old, so I started looking at mattress sales for her. When I came across one that was too good of a deal to pass up, she went ahead and bought it. While it was more comfortable, she was still waking up in pain throughout the night. I asked her if she wanted to see a Redding chiropractor, but she was not sure that would help.
She was under the mistaken assumption that a person has to have been involved in an injury to see a chiropractor. I had never been to one myself, but I have a couple of friends who see their chiropractors on a regular basis, and they have tried for several months for me to go to one just one time to see if my mind could be changed. Talking with my mom about it, I soon realized where I got my own stubborn streak from. She agreed to go to one only if I made an appointment as well, so that is what we did.
Her appointment was first, and it was actually really nice. The chiropractor was not only professional but very friendly too. He explained why Mom might not be so comfortable in bed even though she hadn’t fallen or been in any type of accident. When he felt her back, he could feel that it was not aligned properly, so he gave her an adjustment. That night, she slept the entire night through without waking up once. We are both seeing the chiropractor now, and we make sure that we never go more than two months without having an adjustment done. We feel too good when we do that!
