• Chiropractor discusses Gall Bladder Operation

So, I went to Florida this week with the family on vacation. I wasn't feeling that well in the belly the day we left. Some pain in right upper quadrent of my abdominal area beneath the ribs. By Thursday, I was in the ER, admitted over night and scheduled to have Gallbladder taken out on Friday. Nice vacation. My chiropractor friend who lives in Florida came over to the hospital and worked some magic on me prior to the operation. He did a chiropractic technique involving pressure points to relieve some of my gallbladder pain (it worked) and then he gave me a thorough spinal adjustment to prepare me for the surgery.  Why would he do that? The chiropractor, when adjusting the spine relieves nerve pressure to the body, helping to boost bodily function and immune system function. Everything you would want before going under anesthesia. Plus, the relaxation of all of my muscles made me "feel" much better laying in that hospital bed. The next day I had the gallbladder out, uncomplicated laproscopic surgery. So, now Im hone with a sore post surgical belly and some bloating, but otherwise all is well.  If you have a chiropractor and you are scheduled for surgery, make sure you take advantage of the chiropractor and their skills. It definitely helped me!
