Falling While Sick is Adding Insult to Injury

Getting ill is hard enough, but recuperating from it can be much harder. I had t he flu last year, and it was the worst I had ever felt. I thought I had it many times before, but I knew that none of the other times had come even close. I could not do anything, and holding down a few sips of water was even difficult. I expected a lot of bed rest for sure, but I did not expect that I would need to see a chiropractor in San Jose by the time all was said and done.

What had happened was I needed to get up and use the bathroom. I was very weak, but I had no choice but to get there. I made it there fine, but I fell on the way back to my bed. I actually crawled the rest of the way, and my teen son helped me back in bed when I got there. I hurt so much all over as it was, so I did not feel any different from the fall. However, once I was recovered from the flu symptoms, my back did hurt something awful.

I knew that it was probably due to the fall that I had taken, so I made an appointment with my chiropractor a few days later. I used to go for adjustments on a regular basis, but I had not been there in nearly a year. After getting an adjustment after he had decided there was no significant damage to my back, I felt so much better. In fact, I felt so good that I knew that I should have been back way before then to have another adjustment done. I am not going to let another year go by before I have this done again!
