I come a very great distance for this care and I’m devoted to it because it’s helping me.
I had severe head, neck, shoulder and middle back pain. Over the last couple of years I wasn’t able to devote myself to my cleaning business. My staff had to take over my responsibilities because I had trouble walking up and down stairs to meet with clients. Much of the time I was in bed with back pain and taking heavy medication trying to get better. I am a widow and I have to work, but more than that, I enjoy working. Nothing was bringing me any joy. When you lose your joy for doing things, something is wrong. I really felt I wasn’t ever going to get any better.
I was constantly holding one arm up to rub the back of my head and neck. I used to wear heat patches for my shoulders. I was taking very heavy pain medication and muscle relaxants because that’s what my previous doctor recommended for me. I own every piece of equipment known to mankind to relieve anything for back pain. In order to sit in a restaurant, I would have to support my back with tennis balls to relieve the pain! I have traveled all over to find someone who could help me. I have seen other Chiropractors, Acupuncturists, Massage Therapists; I have done the whole route. Other Chiropractors say the same thing about getting into alignment, but I never got into alignment with them. Very often I would leave with ten times more pain than when I came in. After years of treatment, I didn’t mind spending the money, but I just wanted to see even a little light at the end of the tunnel. I just didn’t know what else to do. I really didn’t have much of a life apart from the pain in my back.
I heard about Upper Cervical Chiropractic from my son. He found out about it from the Internet and was a patient himself, with a different doctor. He had positive results, so he told me about it. I decided to give it a try.
I have been under care for 2 months. Right after my first treatment I experienced relief throughout my body, kind of like the domino effect. I had a hard time believing it myself, but it worked, and I have been holding my adjustment very well. I can’t believe and I can’t explain how my life is better now. I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Dr. Kleinfelter. I can get in and out of my car. The best part is that the pain doesn’t get as bad as it used to be and I am able to comfort myself. Previously when the severe pain would come, I would have to immobilize myself. I would get down on the floor or get in my Select Comfort Bed with the setting on hard and take medication. Now, if I get uncomfortable sitting in someone else’s furniture, for example, or if I get a cramp; I can stand up, relax myself, put my shoulders back, and do some stretches to relieve and comfort myself. That’s an amazing thing for me! I knew my back needed to be strengthened and she did it. I also had terrible digestive problems and they have unexpectedly improved. I used to have bad foot problems and could only wear certain tennis shoes. I don’t have this problem anymore and this is the first summer in a long time that I have been able to wear sandals. I again have a life! It is important to me to be able to have a life, even if I am an older person. This type of care is the best money I have ever spent. It’s a joke, but now my friends want to know where my tennis balls are!
I would like to tell people to keep an open mind and trust Upper Cervical Care and Dr. Kleinfelter as instruments to help the body heal itself. Our bodies have the ability to heal themselves and she is there to help us if we are willing to go and be patient, keeping all our appointments. It’s our body and we have to take good care of it. Everyone in the doctor’s office is so sweet and helpful and considerate. I come a very great distance for this care and I’m devoted to it because it’s helping me. I have never done this with a doctor before. My next mission is to get back on the treadmill and get physically fit so I can enjoy the next 25 or 30 years. I will continue to spread the word and tell people about Upper Cervical Chiropractic and its benefits!
