It’s a tremendous difference…
I had pain going down my legs and in my lower back. I had a lot of tiredness and fatigue. I ached when I woke up in the morning. I was miserable. I had tried regular chiropractic care for the past ten to fifteen years and it didn’t really help me. Basically, I used over-the-counter Acetaminophen and bathed in Epsom salts, although it didn’t help me much. I had been to medical practitioners and unfortunately, they weren’t any help either. They told me I was too young to have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, or Arthritis. They kept telling me I was depressed and worrying too much. They prescribed anti-depressants and told me that I needed to talk to someone about my problems and all my symptoms would probably subside. I knew that wasn’t the case. I was very frustrated, and no longer had faith in physicians anymore.
I learned about NUCCA Chiropractic when I received a free screening from Dr. Pearson at the County Fair. It was a different type of chiropractic care than I was used to, but I decided to schedule an appointment. On my first visit I was nervous, because of my past experience with doctors, but everything was explained very thoroughly and they sent me home with “homework”. They gave me tapes and CDs and all different types of literature, so I would understand and feel more at ease. That was very helpful.
After my first adjustment most of my symptoms subsided. I was amazed! I have been under care for a little over two months. I still have some fatigue but it’s not as bad.
Where it used to take me a week to recover from doing everyday things, like going to the grocery store, I can now go to the store and pick up a few things, and I will just be sore for a little bit that evening or possibly the next day. I’ve also noticed that I don’t experience pain or migraine headaches anymore when the barometric pressure or weather changes. I am sleeping a lot better and actually dreaming again. It’s a tremendous difference! As time goes on, I feel better and better.
I would like to encourage other patients to stick with it and not give up. Sometimes people don’t get results right away, or when people start to feel better they may wonder why they have to keep going. People want to get cured right away and start living their life again, but it you continue with the care, you will get better and better, and start holding your adjustment longer and longer, and you can have the type of lifestyle that you want.
I am really, really happy that I found 1st Place Chiropractic, because I feel like a normal human being again. I tell everybody I can, to try NUCCA, and that the adjustment is so gentle it feels as if it isn’t going to do anything, but it really does. It is amazing!
