Old Age is Just a State of Mind

You grow up hearing the elderly complain of aches and pains on a daily basis. You hear how it is “Hell to get old,” so naturally you start to belileve that all the aches and pains you are experiencing are just a part of the aging process. My girlfriends and I would tease each other about making “old lady noises getting in and out of the car.”

As the age of 50 was growing near, my knees would hurt. I would have to stand up and make sure my hips were in place under me before taking off, and my back was constantly causing me problems. I was living on Advil, two in the morning and two before I went to bed. Then it really hit me. I was entertaining the first of December and had been working hard all day and then, when my guests arrived, I could hardlyl move. They all kept saying I needed to do something, but what? I made the call.

Monday morning, I called the McCoy Chiropractic Clinic and they were able to schedule me right away. Katie took the x-rays, and then I saw Dr. Matt. He was very thorough in explaining everything he saw on the x-rays and did various movement and range tests. I was amazed at how he could tell me where the pains were. I was really scared of the pain I might have when he made the adjustment. After the first adjustment, I felt relief. I know it is hard to believe, but it was true. And basically painless.

I am no longer relying on Advil on a daily basis and feel much better. When I do start to have pain in an area, Dr. Matt can make the adjustment and I am on my way. I think I am even walking straight, tall, and quicker. Old age is just a state of mind.

Thank you Dr. Matt and McCoy Chiropractic Clinic.
