Growing up, I was involved in many sports including swimming and track. For years, I had signs that something was not right with my body. As a young child, I would wake up and not be able to move my neck. The pain would come and go. My friends and family chalked it up to growing pains. One day, I woke up one day with such excruciating pain in my lower back I could hardly even perform everyday tasks–and this was in my 20’s!
Having been athletic all my life I was shocked at how much pain I was in. Over the course of a few months, it worsened. Disliking the taking of medications in the past I became more dependent on them to get through my days. I stopped all athletic activity, and I soon for the first time in my life I felt depressed. I sought medical help but the doctors said there was little they could do for me. A family member gave me a number for a local chiropractor. I must say I was skeptical and a little scared. What should I expect?
As soon as I walked in the door I felt welcomed and cared for. The chiropractor explained that I had misalignments that were affecting my body’s ability to be healthy. He told me he could help me. After the first adjustment, I felt different. By the third adjustment, I realized just how disconnected from my body I had been. By the end of my care, I was sleeping better, I had more energy, and I resumed my activities. That experience shaped me and changed my life. Chiropractic continues to enhance the quality of my life. Now I spend my days running after my vibrant little four-year-old Caitlyn. We treasure our vitality and love to spend our free time hiking and enjoy the joys of living in such a beautiful area. We love scootering and walking our dog Toro.
