It was not the first time this has happened, but it was definitely a big inconvenience to me. I was on a long road trip for business and one morning I woke up with a crippling stiffness in my back. It has happened before, but the last time I was not very far from home and I have a Santa Rosa chiropractor that I trust to fix me up. He has this gadget that is like a little electric hammer which seems to be the safest way to go about this. There are a lot of different methods available to the chiropractor, but this is the one I would pick if I had my choice in the matter. They can do this method very meticulously and cautiously while they are using some sort of imaging device to monitor the movement of the bones. So it is possible to gradually do the task without much risk of a disastrous mistake. Of course the chiropractor I selected was about 11 hours away from my home outside of Santa Rosa. I was in no condition to make it home without having my back fixed. It is a big decision which I had to make in a relatively short time. So I was really worried when this guy began to make the adjustment. I would have very much preferred to find some chiropractor who used the method that my chiropractor in Santa Rosa uses. I do not worry at all about him, which is something very nice. You can really get stressed about having an adjustment made, because I know that there is real potential for bad outcomes. It is not a thing you can be sure of until after you have left the office and awakened a few mornings. If the thing goes bad you can be back to square one quite quickly.
