“It already feels a lot better.”

That was the comment a patient made as she left the office today.

I saw her once last year, and had not seen her at all this year. I wouldn’t have seen her today except that her regular exercise class teacher was out a couple weeks ago and the substitute teacher was a young ambitious guy and she ‘just had to try and keep up with him.’

At 79 years old these things are to be expected.

Especially if you have been a chiropractic patient since the age of 17 (1954). That’s when she first came in to this office (well it was Haynes-Thompson Chiropractic then, of course). I have only been taking care of her for 30 years.

She was referred in by her husband.

They charged her $18 for that first visit, which included X-rays of her neck, the history, examination and the first chiropractic adjustment.

(Interestingly, that’s only a few dollars less than what Medicare now pays for a visit. But that’s not why I brought it up.)

I share this so that you can connect the dots, and apply the lesson to your own life. This patient lives on her own, doesn’t need a cane or walker, and can exercise with the best of them. Chiropractic care played a role.
