Ruth Hamric, age 68
Dear Dr. Michael,
I need not tell you how much pain I was experiencing when I first came to you last year, but I can certainly testify that although it took a couple of months to reduce the pain, I have been pain free for nine months and never felt better.
December 2011 was the first time in my life I had ever experienced sciatic nerve pain, and treating myself was a disaster; the pain was excruciating and I was unable to walk except with the aid of crutches. It took a while to trace the root cause to a surgery two years earlier, and work through the pain originating in the opposite side of my body.
I am most grateful to Mary for all her massage therapy and exercise recommendations to further increase strength in my lower body and what to expect when I get tired and her various tips on recovering. I am pain free and can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone that they give you and your staff the opportunity to help them work to get pain free and help to heal the whole body. My recovery was certainly expedited because of your professional care.
My family physician had provided pain medication and told me to go home and come back the next week if I still had pain. I do not like taking pain medication, and I was given no additional guidance or solution to reducing the pain except to sit and rest, and how do you do that with a 5-year old running around? The medication did nothing for two days, and I promptly looked for a chiropractor. Finding a doctor who works with the patient to heal the body without the use of sedation or drugs was exactly what I needed when I found you.
You are undoubtedly the best! Please accept my sincere appreciation for you and your staff’s care during the past year.
