Anyone terrified of chiropractor?
I discovered somewhat unexpectedly, that my neck is in the first stage of spinal degeneration and has completely lost the natural curvature that it's supposed to have. My husband's workplace actually brings a chiropractor into the office twice a week for their employees to get adjustments, we like him a lot and he did my x-rays. He's super concerned about it because I'm only in my early twenties and my neck is going to deteriorate at twice the normal rate...SOOOOOOO I have agreed to go to the office twice a week (it is free for employees and their families) to be adjusted, HOPEFULLY this will begin to work to avoid surgery etc.
The issue is, I'm truly terrified of getting adjusted, I've probably had it done about four times so far, and I've gotten used to the back ones but when he goes to do my neck I can't STAND IT! I know I have to relax the muscles because it makes it so much worse when they're tight, but I CAN'T relax them because they are protecting my poor neck! Has anyone figured out a way to stay calm and not freak out? I know no heads have fallen off in the history of chiropractic, but that doesn't mean I couldn't be the first!
