Recently, I went to a Chiropractor because I had been experiencing a numbness in my left arm due to a pinched nerve. To be honest, I did not know it was a pinched nerve. I first experieced the pain about two months ago and I could have sworn I was having a heart attack. They always said that your left arm would hurt first, you know. Anyhow, I worked an event for 97.1 The River and met these two chiropractors (one that was pretty cute) and decided to have them scan me. They looked at the scan and stated that something was going on with the left side of my neck and that I really should get it looked at. I did not tell them about the numbness in my left arm, so it kind of freaked me out. I had them make an appointment for me for a nearby Chiropractor, who took x-rays and gave me a couple of adjustments. According to the x-rays, I have an extremely straight neck which has pinched some nerves. Although I believe in Chiropractors, I don't want to get suckered into paying for a year of adjustments when I don't think I'm that bad off. Plus, my schedule is so hectic and I don't feel like going to him three times a week, like he recommends. Any thoughts on Chiropractors? I think I might cancel my appointment today...


  1. Yay for a new blog! This time you have to keep it updated:) I like that purple dress you wore to your bro's wedding- very pretty!

  2. Im biased, but a physical therapist can do an adjustment, and then teach you exercises to strenghten your muscles to keep your neck in that new position. That can realive the nerve compression. And, you just go for a couple of weeks, and then should be able to maintain it on your own, no need to keep going for years.
