I am pretty religious about going to get my teeth cleaned every six months, although each time I go, it is a harrowing experience. The trauma I feel now stems from my childhood.
Because my back felt better the day of my appointment, DiBenedetto didn't crack it. But he did give me a brief education in chiropractic medicine. I came away from my first visit to a chiropractor with great respect for the profession.
When I was growing up, my family relied upon a stable of health care professionals whose idiosyncrasies remain seared into my memory.
