How many of you seek out holistic therapies to solve a medical issue? How many of you seek out your clinical modern day pharmaceutical supported physician? At our fingertips we have quite a few choices for medical care, and quite an array of different therapies to fixing us up. I recently had a horrible neck muscle spasm. It was almost impossible to move my head side to side for two days. After the second night of little to no sleep, I sought out medical counsel. First visit was to the internist. And as can be expected, the diagnosis was for an acute muscle spasm, and the solution – drugs, and lots of them. First came the muscle relaxant, and then came the vicodin for pain. After the quick stop to the local druggist, a friend suggested I go see his chiropractor. My friend swore up and down that this was the right course of action. So I went to see his chiropractor. To be honest, it was my first time to one. Just coming off from a visit to a sterile, modern, computer blazing doctors office, the chiropractor’s office felt like taking a step back into the 50’s. No computer, just a typewriter, and mood lighting. But, after a session with acupuncture, ultrasound therapy, and a good old neck manipulation, I actually felt a lot better. Score one for a partial quick fix through holistic medicine. I was not so pain free, but it was a big improvement. I slept better last night, but I did cheat. I used the muscle relaxant to take the edge off. Not sure this works with all aliments, but I’ve come to appreciate the need to seek out holistic approaches, along with the use of modern meds.
