When I was 14 years old, my life changed forever. I developed terrible pains in my knees from cycling. I ignored the pain (as many athletes do) and kept on training. I did all the right things you were supposed to do like ice and stretching but when my parents saw me limping one day, they knew something was wrong.
My right knee was so painful that I could hardly walk, run, or ride a bicycle without paying for it the next day. That year, we consulted three orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, and other doctors. One orthopedic doctor told me that if I didn’t have surgery I would have to live with the pain for the rest of my life. I was devastated. I was afraid and felt like my heart sank into my belly.
Imagine yourself being told to quit your favorite hobby! Whether you like to golf, garden, or workout, imagine what it would feel like to be told there’s no hope.
So, yeah, I know just how you feel. Just know that I'm on your side. You want to get better, just like I did at 14.
Fast forward five years. A friend convinced me to give chiropractic care a try. His chiropractor examined me by watching me walk, looking at my posture and testing all my muscles, then he “adjusted” my knees, feet, hips and spine. The adjustments actually felt good. At first I was afraid, but it really helped me a lot. I felt a difference and I felt that my body functioned better. Within 4-5 months, I was back on my bike. They say some people have a smile from ear-to-ear, but I think mine extended much farther than that.
What that chiropractor did for me, I strive to do for others.
It’s exciting to be a chiropractor. Here’s a small list of things we commonly see:
Chronic neck pain
Shoulder pain/rotator cuff
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Numbness in the arms and legs/peripheral neuropathy
Oh, and by the way, we can do "non-cracking" adjusting, we don't sell people pre-paid plans, we don't take x-rays routinely or tell you to come back a million times and get no results. We've never done treatment in "open rooms" where other people can see you. Our reputation in town has been "he will tell you if he can help or not, and won't string you along."
Call us now and meet myself and my friendly staff. We’ll do all we can to help you.
