Decided that since this is a chiropractor page, I’m going to keep up with the idea of injuries and talk about all the pains and problems I’ve had throughout my lifetime. It could get really long so make sure you buckle in for the ride.
The first time I got hurt was like back in 2nd grade. We have always lived on a farm, so we’ve had plenty of trees around the house and our land to keep us busy. 2 of these trees were ones that you could climb up and have like a little tree house party. Well, we didn’t have a tree house but we just decided to chill up there in the tree anyways. So, one time I decided that maybe it would be fun to show off. Honestly, I don’t even remember any of this, but it was what people have told me after the fact.
At the very end of our driveway we had a tree that had like a low, long limb. It probably went out about 6-8 feet or so. It was a very easy tree to climb and get up on. Above this limb were two more that you could wind around and get on top of. My brothers and I used to always walk on the low limb like it was a balance beam. Well, I guess one time I took it a little too far. I wiped out, hit me head, got a concussion, hurt my leg and fracture my arm with a tiny little fall. But, with the concussion, I don’t remember it at all. Here is what our neighbor said. He saw me at the very top of the tree! There could have been a chance I fell from the very top! Now, i don’t ever remember climbing to the top of this tree before so I feel like that wasn’t the case.
Surprisingly no one was out there with me. I can’t believe that at least one of my two brothers weren’t out there. I come to wonder if they were up there too, got down before me, then when I fell they were already in the house. IDK. I do know that my leg was pretty sore but nothing bad came as a result, just the fractured arm.
So that was injury #1. More to come!
