My Future is Still So Uncertain After My Accident

12 Jan

Rush hour traffic has always been a pain, but there was just no getting around it. I wish nearly every day now that I still had to complain about it though, because I spend most of my days just sitting at home now. I was involved in an accident on the freeway, and it has forever changed my life. Thankfully, I was able to bring a car accident attorney in Sacramento into the case once I saw that I was in over my head with the insurance company. I was offered a settlement that seemed to be okay, and that was my first hint that something was not right.

I knew enough about insurance companies to know that they want to settle fast and to their advantage. Though the figure I was given was decent, I just felt like they were trying to get me to sign away any future claims by agreeing to their terms. It could have been a valid settlement too, I just did not know. Read the rest of this entry »

I Hurt My Neck Wrestling with the Kids

12 Jan

I fell over backwards from the arm of our couch. I rolled completely backwards doing a reverse somersault twisting my neck before I then hit the floor. The kids and I were wrestling, and they thought it was funny. I felt like I broke my neck! It hurt really bad, and I ended up going to the ER. A scan did not reveal any damage other than some bruising from stretching the muscles really hard. I did not break anything. However, I ended up going to a Campbell chiropractor because my neck hurt for weeks afterwards. I could feel funny sensations on my head and neck too. The chiropractor suspected that I pinched or otherwise seriously irritated some nerves coming out of my spine when I did my unintended acrobatic maneuver. Read the rest of this entry »

Chiropractor in Mesa for Work Related Injuries

12 Jan

My husband was injured at work last month and is now on disability. After weeks of physical therapy, his back is still giving him lots of problems. His physical therapist suggested that he should contact a chiropractor in Mesa. We did some research and found one that will take on workers’ compensation patients. Now we just have to wait for his first appointment which is in six days.

My husband is a very impatient person and was getting kind of cranky as the days seemed to drag on before his first appointment. He was in so much pain and it was unbearable for me to watch. Read the rest of this entry »

A Pinched Nerve Can Be Very Painful

11 Jan

I have heard people complain of a pinched nerve before, but I never really gave it much thought because I had never felt the pain or discomfort associated with it. That changed last year though when I had almost unbearable pain in my neck when I moved it certain ways. I tried a heating pad, ice compresses, sleeping with a new pillow, over the counter pain pills, and more, but nothing took that pain away. The only thing left for me to do was find a San Jose chiropractor that would be able to see me soon.

I was able to make an appointment with Stevens Creek Chiropractic for the following day. I had no idea what to expect as I had never been to this kind of doctor before. Read the rest of this entry »

I Was Surprised when a Local Appliance Repair Company in Sacramento Was Able to Fix Our Antique Refrigerator

11 Jan

I bought a really old refrigerator for use in cabins we are renovating to have a period look. I had the refrigerator completely disassembled and put back together with a modern compressor that would take new refrigerant. It was working fine, but there was a problem with the temperature setting. I had this refrigerator rebuilt out of state. I called a local place that does appliance repair in Sacramento to come out and take a look at it to see if the could fix it.

Well, the technician was really surprised to see it, and he was not worried about working on it at all. He said that after all his years of fixing appliances, the fancy coverings over the inner components does not mean much. Read the rest of this entry »
