You’re not alone. Many of us have been there before.
You really want to back out of your driveway without running something over, but you end up just maybe tapping on your horn and backing up with a prayer.
Or you really want to change lanes but you can’t look all the way over to make sure it’s safe, so you put that turn signal on and you change lanes slowly enough to give the other drivers a chance to realize you’re just going to go for it.
Or your husband or wife says “Look at this!” – and you do. You forgot how much your neck hurts to turn and you just went and turned your neck without a single care. Acting all young and carefree and whatnot. Sudden, sharp pain!
If you’ve never been to a chiropractor before then you may be a bit apprehensive about having your neck adjusted. Maybe you’ve seen some dangerous-looking things on YouTube or TikTok. Or maybe you saw some immensely satisfying crunches and cracks on those social media sites and you want to give it a try.
You have every reason to be weary. We all are very protective of our necks. I believe it was the great philosopher of the 1990’s, M-E-T-H-O-D Man, who rhymingly advised us all to “Protect your neck”. The neck is a delicate piece of anatomy and it is crammed full of vital arteries and, of course, the spinal cord. A lifetime of movies featuring bad guys having their necks snapped into oblivion has likewise taught us to not allow strangers to twist our necks.
Yet here you are.
The good news is that even when in pain it is generally very safe to adjust someone’s neck. Not safe to adjust your own neck, or your friend’s neck. But it is safe to have a educated, trained, licensed and insured Doctor of Chiropractic adjust your neck. Yes, even if you are in pain and can barely look to the side.
So, if you’re sitting here reading this while bracing your neck muscles and barely looking to the side then I hope you consider giving our office a call at (301) 378-0334. We are open from 8am to 6pm Monday through Friday and 9-12 on Saturday morning. You will probably be pleasantly surprised that you feel much better walking out our doors then walking in.
