OH...I fired my chiropractor after 30 years. His rudeness to me over the past 3 years has been difficult. I don't have a habit of sucking it up, but it was a means to an end, so so to say, for my maintenance woes. He could/would not help with my hips or answer my questions as I needed. Once Covid hit, his anti-everything shot into high gear. When I mentioned I had dry needling done, he said absolutely nothing!!! Wth?
Sooo, I bided my time over the last year while he decided to lower his hours to 2 days per week and when to retire. The last time I was there, after I had Covid, and I pretty much got the "you know the rapid tests are useless and that blah, blah, blah....". His anger was so OTT, I thought he was going to blow, when I asked how he was the only one who knows that.
When I stated I wasn't coming back EVER, he was nonresponsive, and when I mentioned a few things of how his attitude and rotten disposition has been, I was shocked I didnt swear once. I do regret not mentioning a few more things...like his energy is very bad, he's lost his focus on patient care, and he should retire and seek anger management etc.
I have a new chiro (same Sports Clinic as my Sports doc and dry needling practitioner), but given my obvious neck issues, he's reluctant to do certain adjustments because of possible not so good outcomes. I'm frustrated, but will take it as a new experience and see where it leads. I have no energy to hunt for what I need because I dont know what he has to offer yet.
My hips are pretty good...however, I have been very neglectful in doing my exercises. My dry needling practitioner is on mat-leave till the end of the year, but she gave me the name of another recommendation. Because of that, I'm not fearful of ever heading to where I was before. The relief has been a miracle for me...but the exercises will give me more of where I need to be for strength in my aging years. The main issue diagnosis...ileopsoas muscle and the smaller muscles compensating. Basically, snowball effect.
Thank you for asking...💚
