Always a Good Idea to Keep Things off the Floor

I tripped and fell in my living room a couple of months ago. I had left my running shoes out and that is how it happened. I have told my husband so many times to not leave his shoes out because they’re a tripping hazard, but now I had done it myself and caused my own trouble. I had to quickly go see a dentist in Fremont because I cracked my tooth when I fell and hit the arm on our couch. The pain was pretty strong when I first slammed into it. I reached up to touch my teeth when I got up, and I was happy to see that I hadn’t lost or broken any. But I looked in the mirror soon after and saw the crack.

It got bad for a time, but I decided to give a Campbell chiropractor a try. All the MDs suggested was pain pills, more imaging and maybe surgery. That is not for me.

I have a friend who has had more than a dozen surgeries on his back. He said he broke his back at work and has never been the same since. I was wondering, in my layman’s mind, how a single break could lead to more than a dozen surgeries and you still have a back that hurts terribly. Continue reading
