Snap, Crackle, Pop

So my shoulder has been bothering me for a week and I decided, on the advise on a few friends to see a chiropractor. Now I have NEVER gone to a chiropractor before so I was slightly scared, yes me, scared. So I get to the chiropractor's office and I'm waiting for my husband to get there, told you I was scared. JT finally gets there and Dr. Taylor (no relation) comes in and starts this battery of tests.

So once we get past all the tests we begin all these procedures. I got electroshock therapy on my shoulder and neck, I got laser light on my neck and shoulder, I got some kind of joint movement thing done but the two things I am still laughing about.

The first thing is the pink tape. They clean my shoulder with alcohol and put this tape, pink of course. This is suppose to pull everything up so that the range of motion can improve and also so the C5 and C6 nerve endings can heal. Kind of weird but ok.

Then I got adjusted. Lord I did not know it was possible for a person to snap crackle and pop that much! LOL! I'm sore today but I felt like jello after I left. My husband is being patient although he would like his wife back to normal as soon as possible.

Ok so I am a dork! I am prone to accidents and I catch every illness my children and husband bring home from the public school districts that they go to school and work but this one is funny.

Last week I was blow drying my hair with hair dryer in one hand and hair brush in the other in the hand above your head position. Well the urge to sneeze hit. I don't just sneeze one time, it's more like a million times, so I kept one hand up and covered my mouth with the other. So the arm that was up, I hear my shoulder pop and it begins to hurt.

So 2 days of resting and not using it and then Easter weekend hit and of course I probably over did it. Now it hurts up my neck and down part of my arms just typing and hitting the buttons on my telephone at work.

My friend suggested I go see a chiropractor, my husband says let's doctor me at home, no insurance says and MRI is out of the question but it's not getting better and it is hurting worse!
