Yesterday was a monumental day. 98 days after my car accident on January 28th, the chiropractor decided that I was able to released from my post accident treatment!
No more three days a week at the chiropractor! Even though I love the office that I’ve been going to, the time its taken out of my schedule to go to the chiropractor three times a week has had a huge impact on my day to day activities. I’ve been left with much less time each afternoon to take care of chores at home, and I’ve sat in much more traffic coming home after my chiropractor appointments.
Part of my discussion with the chiropractor yesterday was that even though I’m being released from post accident treatment, he recommended that I start a maintenance plan, and that I still visit at least every other week for the time being. I’m more than okay with this change and appreciate that he sees the benefit to continuing to monitor me instead of just sending me on my merry way. At the same time, I’m also ready for the claim to finally be closed and for the at fault driver’s insurance company to finally settle with us.
Other than having my afternoons back, one of the things I’m most excited about is having more time to dedicate to my training. Spending as much time as I was at the chiropractor, followed by sitting in heavy traffic coming home, has had a huge impact on the amount of time that I’ve been able to dedicate to my training over the past couple of months. I can’t wait to regain my lost time back!
I know that I’m a long way from putting this accident behind me altogether, but this is definitely a huge step in the right direction. And in many ways, I feel like a huge burden has been lifted off of my shoulders.
