I am very grateful for chiropractors. They don't get their due and that's a shame because they do good work.
A nasty cough recently messed up my back including displacing a rib. Assorted back muscles have done their darnedest to compensate for it in the only way they know how. I'll skip the details, but in short I didn't have a comfortable position to lie in and turning over was quite a big, painful deal.
Massage, essential oils, ice when needed, heat when needed, and rest have done been a great help, but it's the chiropractic adjustments that have made the greatest difference.
I'm getting another one this morning, the third for this issue and quite possible the last. I'm looking forward to it and am very grateful for the skilled help I am receiving.
