Visit with the Chiropractor

About two weeks ago I spent a long Saturday in front of the computer uploading photo’s. After about the 6th hour I felt a sting in my neck. Didn’t think much about it at the time. But by the next day I knew I must have pinched a nerve or something. If I turned my head and looked up at the ceiling I got a shooting pain down my right arm to the elbow.

I figured I would give it a rest, keep away from the desk a couple days and hopefully it will take care of itself.

Today, still in just as much pain, I made the decision to visit my old Chiropractor, Jeffrey Mattar. (Click on his name to go to his web site). I haven’t seen him since 1988! Wow has the time flew by. He was surprised and happy to see me, and we talked about what has been going on in our lives since I last saw him.

He has been treating my daughter, granddaughter, and sister for several years now. All of them speak highly of him. So I figured he may have “learned his trade” by now, so it’s safe for me to see him again! ha ha ha… I don’t have alot of faith in Chiropractors, but I might as well give it a try again.

After the X-Rays he spotted two places that needed adjustment. Going to work on me right away, my neck and back sounded like a pan of popping corn. But my neck did feel better when he was done. So far this evening I can only feel a little of the stiffness in my neck easing up. Still have the pain going to the right elbow.

Thursday he wants to see me again and maybe do another adjustment. Glad I have insurance that covers this….man o man, I’m in the wrong business!

So I’ll get off the computer, take a hot shower, and go to bed. Tomorrow is another day.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.


  1. Hope you get better soon. Same thing happened to my husband. He went to a doctor and was sent to a specialist who mentioned putting him in traction and if that does not work operating on his neck. Instead my husband went to a chiropractor and it only took a few sessions and he was healed. Good luck.

  2. I'm glad to hear your husband was taken care of without surgery. Surgery is the last resort.
