I went to visit my sister and her family in Orlando, so naturally we went to the Magic Kingdom. I had never been there, and I loved that it was not during their peak times because I was able to ride a lot of rides. I saved the roller coaster for last because I wanted my anticipation to build up, and it did. The ride was fantastic, but I admit to feeling a bit beat up after it was over. When I came back home, one of the first things I did was see my chiropractor in Concord.
The day of the roller coaster ride, I was just fine other than feeling a bit whooped. I attributed that to a full and very fun day at my age. Kids can have a blast for days, but just one full day can take a lot of out of a senior citizen. The few days after the trip to Disney, I could tell that something was off. I didn’t complain because I didn’t want to ruin anyone’s time there, and I knew that I could just go to the chiropractor back at home within a few days.
When I told my chiropractor I was acting like a kid with the roller coasters, we had a good laugh about it. It had been months since my last adjustment because life had just gotten busy, and I learned my lesson for skipping an adjustment. He did one that day, and he also wanted me to have a deep tissue massage, which they do right at his office. That more than anything is what made me feel like myself again. There were parts that were painful, but I understood the need for that to happen since things had to be broken up inside my shoulders. I feel ready for another roller coaster ride now!
