Over the last few months my life has improved dramatically thanks to Body of Health Chiropractic & Wellness Center. While my story is not unusual; it is definitely worth reading about as I have no doubt there are many men and women who will read this testimonial and be able to identify with my situation.
First, a little background on what eventually lead me to seek help at the Body of Health clinic. I had been having intermittent neck and shoulder problems since about 2003 much of which I attributed to stress. Then in 2005 I was involved in a high speed car accident, luckily no one was seriously injured but I was definitely sore after the accident and my neck and shoulder problems became more frequent; I also started experiencing some pain in my knee as well. In 2007 I was involved in another high speed car accident, again no one was seriously injured but my pain became chronic. For those of you who have experienced chronic pain, it becomes a way of life and there comes a time where you don't even notice it anymore, it is a constant that you adapt to. This year I was involved in yet another car accident and I knew I had to do something to relieve the pain. My job requires me to travel frequently and after over 20 very uncomfortable flights and numerous restless nights on the road this year I knew I could no longer continue functioning as I had been.
My first visit to Body of Health Chiropractic & Wellness Center was to see Wendie Gum, LMT. I have been receiving massages for several years and have always enjoyed them and found them to be both mentally and physically beneficial. Thanks to Wendie's expertise she was able to identify that I was having muscle spasms in my lower back and suggested that I pay a visit to Dr. Young. She also explained that if I decided to have Dr. Young treat me she would work with him to make sure my massage therapy worked in conjunction with my chiropractic treatment. Determined to feel better I schedule an appointment.
Initially, I was nervous about seeing Dr. Young because I had heard that once you receive chiropractic treatment it was something you needed to continue with forever. Dr. Young was easy to talk to and explained to me that chiropractic treatment was just another form of medical treatment used to alleviate pain and heal the body. He spent plenty of time with me testing my range of motion and assessing my condition. During his initial assessment he discovered that my pelvis had shifted making one leg shorter than the other which is often a cause of muscle strain. Dr. Young also discovered that I had scar tissue that was interfering with the muscles in my neck and shoulder. Finally, he sent me for X-rays to confirm is initial assessment. The X-rays revealed there had been damage to my neck and back, specifically I no longer had a natural curve to my neck, and parts of my spine had shifted. Lucky for me, Dr. Young explained that the damage could be reversed with a series of chiropractic treatments that would realign my neck and spine and break up the scar tissue in my shoulder and neck. He also said he would work with Wendie to help her focus on specific areas that would be beneficial to my recovery. He gave me a few simple stretching exercises to help the process along. I was ready tackle my pain problem head on and was thoroughly convinced that Dr. Young and Wendie could help me. The Body of Health clinic even went above and beyond the call of duty; they checked into my insurance for me and discovered that insurance would cover a good portion of both my chiropractic and massage treatments. I was thrilled.
I have had 15 treatments with Dr. Young and 8 theraputic massages by Wendie. I am feeling 200% better and my pain is almost non-existent. In this short time I went from seeing Dr. Young 2-3 times a week at the beginning of my treatment down to once a week. I am now on a maintenance program that consists of adjustments twice monthly and massage therapy 1-2 times a month. As a result of feeling better physically, my mental health and mood has also improved; it is amazing how much better your life can be when chronic pain is removed from the equation.
If you are reading about my experience and any of it sounds familiar, I really encourage you to pay a visit to Body of Health. They are knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and can help you feel better.
