Health update. :)
I am doing better (despite Killer Bambi and parking lot) accidents. That's the short version. 8)
Longer version is that I haven't been having frequent mini spasms in hands and/or cramps randomly all over. This is because of MAT, which helps the body heal.
Since my MAT specialist and I just switched from weekly appointments to about every ten days, that's part of how I know I am healing. Also the lack of the little spasms and random cramps. The thing about chiropractic adjustments is that they are short-term solutions -- not bad, but they don't help with long-term care.
I've been having chiro for years now, so I feel qualified to say that. There's also that multiple sessions of chiro never healed me during the worst of my spasms... while less than a year of MAT exercises gave me back more normal capacity.
I.e., the ability to carry things or even pick things up, let alone push something as simple as a shopping cart.
Heck, I remember when riding my bicycle to the library threw my spine out and I had spasms! As far as I know, riding the bus will still do the same, which is why public transportation isn't an option for me.
I didn't have a chiro appointment last week. I'd a webinar (thanks, Small Business Association!) and other things that interfered. Since I've had problems with either poor care and on/off care with the chiropractors Molina offers me, I'm none too keen to continue with the choices I've had.
I should get adjusted this week, though, since my right hand's been numb a few times when I wake. That's an old problem, not a new one, y'see. It means "Hey you! Get adjusted... or else."
