Chiropractic changed her life. Here is her story:
I was working as a wedding cake decorator when I began to experience increasingly worsening back pain; the pains were easy to control at first but over the course of a few months grew to the point that I could not sit for more than half an hour without extreme discomfort. This impacted my life very much, I could no longer enjoy things I loved like movies and dinner dates with my new boyfriend, or making the hour drive to see my grandparents.
I went to see my doctor and, at the age of 19, was offered a prescription for pain medication and the promise of future back surgery. A co-worker suggested I see a chiropractor, after the first visit I felt full of hope that I could finally find some relief without drugs. By the end of the first month I felt better and healthier than ever, I was able to enjoy the things I used to. I was very happy with my care and planned on continuing care and cake baking forever.
Then one afternoon right before my appointment I could feel a migraine headache coming on. I’d had these most of my life, my first at age 5 and almost once a month since age 12. They were debilitating; my only solution was to go straight home, take medication and lay very still in a cold dark room for the rest of the day. Since I was almost to the chiropractor’s office and I knew my back always felt better after an adjustment I decided to keep my appointment. As I lay on the table the doctor adjusted my upper neck, and to my surprise, for the first time in my life I could feel my headache disappearing. I got up off of the table and in that moment decided that I wanted to be a chiropractor.
The empowerment of optimal health without the reliance on drugs has changed my life, I am so much happier and can now go anywhere and do anything without fear of pain or sickness, I can make the trip to my grandparents’ house, and beyond. I married that boyfriend and we are both so happy together and so happy to be healthy and active together.
Being able to help others find the true joy in a life free of pain, sickness and drugs is the best gift I could ever receive and every day I am so happy to be able to be a part of helping people on their journey to health. NUCCA has helped me realize my full health potential by correcting and stabilizing my spine in a way that no other chiropractic technique has.
