My Knee Feels Much Better

I am only 48 years old, which I do not consider old by any means. I led a pretty active life up until about eight months ago. I woke up one morning with a sore knee. I had been working hard several days prior to this, so I figured I had just overdone it. I gave it a few days, but the pain did not get better. I knew that I had to see someone about it, and I decided that I would try a chiropractor in Bakersfield since a friend who has a bad knee had nothing but good things to say about him.

I had never been to this type of medical professional, but I was eager to get an appointment because I was tired of hurting. I did have to have some X-rays done, and the chiropractor was able to show me what had happened to my knee. I worried that it was going to take surgery to heal itself, but he assured me that surgery would be the very last option that we would visit. He wanted to try a few different things first, including physical therapy as well as manipulations.

He explained why both of these would help me, and he also warned me about some discomfort that would be involved. The chiropractor told me that I would not have any discomfort from the manipulations as he explained exactly what would be happening as he did them. What would bring a bit of discomfort would be the physical therapy, because the only way to heal was to work through the pain. Knowing this up front made this much easier for me, and I was able to handle the physical therapy quite well. There was some pain involved, but I was able to get through it because the pain was going to happen no matter what. I barely feel any twinges in my knee now, and I am beyond grateful for that.
