My mom used to always tell me to stand tall. I did not understand why it was so important to her that I maintain my posture. When I was in high school I played basketball and I got hit from the side and fell down pretty hard. I had to find a chiropractor in Peoria because I knew that I wanted to get some holistic help instead of going to a surgeon. I like the way that the practitioner can help you improve the quality of your life. I went in for my first appointment and I was asked to take some x rays. I went to the office where I was asked to perform a series of different exercises to show how my alignment was. When I bent from one side to the next, I could feel a muscle pull and it was not something that felt good at all.
I decided that I was going to go and see what he said at my evaluation, and if he could find anything wrong with the area where I felt the muscle pull. I was very nervous because I know that if my injury was bad enough, I was not going to be able to play for a few games. We had the playoffs coming up and I knew that if we were not going to be able to win if I was not in the game. We already had another player that was out because she had been recovering from the flu. The two of us were the heart of the team and I did not want to feel like I let everybody down by not playing. It turned out that I had a slight strain and I felt better after some stretching at the office with the great doctor who got be better.
