My Dog Tripped Me While Walking

09 Nov

I was walking my dog a few months ago when I had what I thought was a minor mishap. My dog got her leash wrapped around my feet when a stray dog walked by us, and I ended up falling. I thought the worst thing that had happened was my pride was a bit damaged since there were some neighbors out who witnessed it. It turns out that it was not the worst thing though. I actually ended up having to see a chiropractor in Camas because my back started hurting pretty bad a few days later.

Of course I was sore, because it was a pretty hard fall that I took right on the pavement. I knew that I was going to be sore for a few days, but the majority of the pain was spread out. It was not singled on one part of my body. That did not happen until a few days later. I woke up in a lot of pain, and I knew there was no way I was going to get through the day without seeing a medical professional about it. I considered going to the ER, but then my wife suggested that I go to a chiropractor since it was my back that was hurting the most.

I was able to find one easily enough, and the good thing is that I got in the same day. The chiropractor took some X-rays just to make sure that there was no major damage, which there was not. He showed me the images and explained what was going on with my back. I discovered that this was something that would have likely happened anyway, and the fall just quickened it. I got an adjustment, and then made an appointment for a few more over the course of a few weeks. I felt incredible after my final one, even better than I did before my fall.
