Today is a great day. And chiropractor's are great as well! Mom slipped and fell on the ice Tuesday night. She landed on her right butt and elbow. She didn't feel too bad, just mad she fell. Wednesday, she didn't know what she did, but all of a sudden her right shoulder was killing her. When she went home, she had a lump on top of her shoulder. And the lump hurt if you pressed it.
Thursday mom called her chiropractor and got an appointment. Now, one of her co-workers told her she tore her rotator cuff and another asked if she separated her shoulder. Mom didn't know what was up, but she knew she felt like something was pressing on the right side of her chest.
She told the chiropractor what happened and after her exam he told her the good news. She had a rib out of place, and she displaced her clavicle (collarbone). And her back was out. It turns out that when mom fell, everything shifted up, making the lump on the top of her shoulder. After a massage and a few good cracks (sort of like the snap of Legos when they fit into place) mom is almost as good as new. The bad news, no karate until Tuesday. Mom will have to miss two classes.
This reminds mom of me. So she posted it.
