I didn’t think it was possible, but I have found a medical procedure that is as uncomfortable as getting a PAP smear: having your neck adjusted by a chiropractor.
It’s not uncomfortable in the backless gown/stirrups/flood light kind of way that makes up a gynecologist visit. At least when you see a chiropractor, you stay fully dressed.
Though I’ve been seeing a chiropractor weekly for the past two months, I’m still not mentally prepared when he tells me to lie on my back and puts one of his hands under my neck.
“Relax,” he keeps telling me.
I’d love to, but it’s hard when you're holding my head at an angle that makes me think you're…. going …. to …. break …. my …. neck!!
Oh. Actually, you made me feel a lot better. Thanks.
