Call Me Crazy

Call me crazy but I started with a new chiropractor.

I like this one.

He does light therapy. He takes this wand that he holds in his hand and holds the light up against the side of my face all along the jaw line for 30 seconds at a time. It makes a difference. My pain isn't completely gone but I am eating again and talking again.
He also adjusts me the traditional way and today he did a new move that I never had done before. It is an osteopathic cranial stretch. His assistant holds down my left shoulder as he takes my neck and head and stretches it in the opposite direction for 30 to 60 seconds. Then they do the opposite side. While he was doing it all I could think about was the story I had heard when I was a young girl of the neighborhood chiropractor who broke a patient's neck. My chiropractor didn't break my neck of course. And actually I felt a great release of tension after he was done. I felt good in my head. Light and airy.
