A SHOULDER INJURY CHANGED MY LIFE
I was a pitcher on my high school baseball team. Midway through one of the seasons, I began to develop a severe pain in the front of my right shoulder.
At first, I thought it was nothing big. But as the season progressed, the pain became more severe, and I was unable to throw the ball across the infield let alone try to pitch. I tried ice, heat, Icy Hot, Sportscreme, Tylenol, etc. but nothing seemed to help. Something was seriously wrong. My dad recommended that I go and see his chiropractor. I thought to myself, “Why would I go to see a chiropractor? My back is not hurting.” My dad had been going to his chiropractor for several years and was confident that he could help me.
At the chiropractic office, the doctor did a thorough evaluation of my right shoulder. He also checked my spine including my neck, middle and lower back. The doctor explained to me that I had a slight tendon strain in the area of my right shoulder. Furthermore, he told me that I had misalignments of the vertebrae (subluxations) in my neck that were putting pressure on nerves that controlled my right shoulder. The doctor recommended a course of chiropractic adjustments and exercises for my neck and right shoulder.
After starting chiropractic, I was back on the mound pitching pain-free within a couple weeks! I was amazed by the fact that the chiropractor did not use medication and there was no surgery involved. So, I began to do extensive research into chiropractic and what it was all about. Needless to say, I was very intrigued by the chiropractic philosophy and the body’s inborn ability to heal itself. So intrigued in fact, I enrolled at the National College of Chiropractic. That’s why I’m now a chiropractor!
