I like to surf, and my body takes a beating sometimes. I have genetic problems with my back, and my MRI indicates I should not even be able to walk well, let alone surf on the weekends. I attribute the care of my chiropractor in Santa Rosa CA along with my exercises for keeping me mobile. I do have strong back muscles, and I keep it aligned as good as possible by regular visits to my chiropractor. I do have pain on occasion, but I am still active.
I have disc damage and problems with the bones in my back. However, instead of surgery and instructions to take it easy, I see my chiropractor in Santa Rosa CA to keep me adjusted. My body is my machine for getting around in this world. I may not have a sports car for a body, but I do keep my old jalopy running by keeping it maintained and adjusted. My spinal adjustments relieve all my nerve pains in my back. I do not have the pain that some people have even with less than half the actual damage to their backs.
I never want to have a surgery. I would do it if there was no other choice. However, I would delay it as long as possible so I could continue to enjoy my trips to the beach to go surfing. I have been in the water since I was a young child. I was barely out of diapers when I had a wetsuit and was learning how to surf. My dad had a bad back too, and he quit surfing in his late 30s. I am now in my 60s and still go out on the water all the time. My back is still working even though my latest MRI says it should not.
