Today I feel great but I didn’t yesterday. I wasn’t even aware that I didn’t feel great yesterday. It was only through contrast that I knew truly how lousy I had been feeling.
It had been 2 months since I last saw my chiropractor. It had been my longest stretch that I had gone without seeing them.
It started when I noticed over and over again that I had stiff neck, some pain and some sore muscles. Because we were locked down, I couldn’t go to my chiropractor as were are only supposed to see emergencies at that time and I was not in an emergency situation.
I noticed that as soon as I got on the table, my body started to relax. When I finally received my first contact, I realize how truly unwell I had been feeling. I had stress from the lockdown, from being with my two young children all the time, from my practice having to stop, from my husband working at home, worrying about friends and family... everything that everyone else was dealing with but I didn’t know how much I had actually taken on.
As a treatment continued, I started to notice my nervous system come back online. My muscles started to relax in my jaw and I started to stretch my body and I could breathe again. I could fully breathe again. After I got off the table, I exclaimed that I felt like myself again. When I went home, I knew that I could be a better mother to my children, partner to my husband and a better person for humanity.
I am so grateful for the work that I’ve been entrusted to do. I am excited to see my patients again and for them to feel the same things that I felt. Sometimes breaks allow us to truly see how important some things are in our lives.
