I need an adjustment

There are a couple things I miss about living in Monticello, but today at the top of my list of all things I want is an adjustment from my former Chiropractor, John Belde. I woke up this morning with a headache and it's only gotten worse as the day has gone on. I took some meds, but I know it has more to do with my back and neck than anything else and the meds are not helping.

I used to frequent the chiropractor a few times a month, and I ALWAYS felt so much better. I felt as if my posture was right, I never had headaches, and my back pain decreases significantly. It's been a long time since I have been adjusted, and I miss it dearly. I know I could try someone else out, but it scares me. I knew and trusted John, before I ever let him touch my neck or back. I've considered driving the hour and half to Monticello just for an adjustment and then I think my husband would for sure kill me! Am I addicted to Chiropractic care? Should I suck it up and visit someone new, or suck it up and not go anymore? I've been dealing with back and neck pain for as long as I can remember and nothing has helped except when I went to John.


  1. I'm in the same position. I used to go twice a week and since we moved I haven't found a new chiro. It's bad - I get headaches all the time! My advice is: Find someone new! Maybe we could do it together.=)

  2. If you woke up with your headache, you might be grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw at night. Whenever I get a headache in the morning or even other times, it's usually because I am clenching (stress!!). MY DENTIST made me this great device that prevents me from clenching and leaves me headache free : ) I can recommend HIM to you, if you like. : )
