My husband is not used to climbing ladders. He is an accountant, which means he gets to sit down for the majority of his work day. He decided to help me hang some decorations on the house though, which required him getting a ladder from our neighbor. Normally, I have my brother help me with this since he climbs ladders constantly for his work, but he was not available. As a result, I ended up having to find a chiropractor in Sacramento because my husband fell of the ladder when he missed a step coming down from it.
The good news it that he was almost on the ground when he fell off the ladder. The bad news was that even though he only fell down three rungs, he was still in a lot of pain. I wanted to take him to the hospital, but he told me that he did not want to go. When he was still in a lot of pain the following day, I told him that he was either going to the hospital or he was going to either the emergency room or the doctor, so he told me that he would go to a chiropractor because he did want to make sure there was no major damage done.
I was really happy that he agreed to go, because he can be quite stubborn. I called one of the chiropractors who has an office near us and explained about my husband’s accident, and they had us come right in that day. My husband was examined, and thankfully he did not break anything. There was some bruising, but that would heal on its own. What the chiropractor did find out was that my husband’s back needed realigned, and he suggested a series of adjustments for it. My husband was so impressed with how he felt after just a few weeks that he has made it a point to schedule an adjustment at least once a month now.
