Barbara Newton, age 57
In August 2013 I decided I was going to change a few things in my life. I spent the last several years working and sleeping, that’s it. All I did was work hard, work overtime, and then sleep every chance I had. I have spent years seeing a chiropractor on and off and I decided it was time to go back.
I had been to a spine specialist about two years prior to that and he said that I had severe degenerative disk disease and that I needed to replace four to six disks in my spine in order to get better. I wasn’t ready to have that kind of surgery so I just decided that going to a chiropractor or another doctor was useless. For a long period of time, I went to a chiropractor just for a “quick fix” and then stopped going. When I was referred to Dr. Mike from one of my former chiropractors as well as a co-worker, I would have never thought that I would be in such a better place that I am in now in my life.
I was having major financial problems at the time and was afraid to go see Dr. Mike because I couldn’t afford it, but I was desperately yearning to feel better so, Dr. Mike put me on a plan. It was a very rigorous but necessary plan. I was so shocked to see how poor my posture was and how crooked my spine was after the first screening. I committed to seeing him two to three times a week for the first month, time just started flying by. It didn’t take long for me to feel like I was “a regular” with a group of friends all meeting in the same place. I was able to work with Dr. Mike financially as I was being treated, I didn’t have to worry about the financial aspect of the plan as much as the getting better part of the plan.
Dr. Mike and his staff only want their patients to be healthy, happy, and comfortable. Now after just five months of treatment, I am smiling a lot more, I’m standing up taller, I have lost weight, and I am feeling 90% better. I have been getting a lot of massage therapy along with my adjustments and it is working! My back is never going to be 100% better because of the previous damage, but with consistent treatment, I am feeling a lot better! If I do have pain at all, he is the first person I call.
Thank you Dr. Mike, Dr. Dave, Christina, Mary, Becca, Lauren, and all of the entire staff! You all have contributed to helping one person get back on a very positive track in life!
