I know this seems crazy, but I’ve got to get something off my chest. Every day, people come to see me that have suffered for months or years, and are still suffering. Some tell me that they’ve “tried everything.”
They claim they’ve had “every” test, visits to the chiropractor, your family physician and even a specialist, wound up with huge medical bills, but are still no better off. Often, they’ve been subjected to medications that have only served to temporarily mask symptoms. That’s not what most people are looking for. People that come to see me are looking to be pain free and healthy again. That’s what we do.
Health, or the lack of it, very often has simple causes, and very reasonable corrections.
The good news: A new breakthrough in medicine has occurred. It’s called physical medicine. That’s what I’m going to tell you about. But, before I tell you more, let me tell you something about me…
Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. Let me tell you my story.
“At the time, I’m playing college rugby for the best team in America, and life is good. But then, it happens… I’m not the biggest guy on the field or even close to it. In my case it happens gradually. The pain in my back gets so intense that I can’t sit and study, stand up straight, and sometimes I can’t even get out of bed. The shooting pain sometimes wakes me up in the middle of the night. I’m afraid that I’ll lose my position on the team or worse. After trying over the counter medication (that’s the only option I thought I could afford) I was fed up. But, there’s more…
A get a job at a doctor’s office and he offers to take a look at my doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and shortly, I can move around again. Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? Chiropractic works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself. And that’s how it started!”
Let me tell you about Crist Francisco, D.C, my associate. He was born with a spine defect and thought low back pain was normal. His parents finally took him to see a chiropractor at age 9 and that’s what changed his life forever. He stopped pursuing a career as a professional athlete so he could make the same difference in other’s lives.
Our medical provider Angie, ARNP suffered with severe neck pain with numbness and tingling in her fingers from bulged discs, sometimes for months on end. She had always feared going to a chiropractor because she believed that it would cause more pain, but when she did ‘give in’, she realized that adjustments are comfortable and effective. Today, her neck pain is reduced significantly and there has been no numbness or tingling.
For the last five years, people from Edgewater and the surrounding area have come to see me with their back problems.
They also come to me with their:
Whiplash from car accidents
Numbness in limbs
These neighbors of yours tell their successes:
“The rigid feeling in my neck and shoulders that I have been bothered by for decades has disappeared.” (Karen H.- Edgewater, FL)
“The trigger point treatment is awesome! Complete Success! Feel so much better.” (Barbara V.- New Smyrna Beach, FL)
“I no longer take prescription medication for pain” (Betty D.- Edgewater, FL)
Here’s the most important thing I have to say. You’re body is made to heal itself, and it does that best when it’s free of nerve interference. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m a chiropractor and I think that it is the greatest profession in the world. So, what about patients that don’t respond well to adjustments?
With physical medicine, combining the most powerful aspects of medical technologies, there are breakthroughs that allow doctors to properly diagnose and treat your case, to get you out of pain. This can be hard to believe given that you have tried everything, but you have never tried this.
Each morning our entire medical staff has a meeting to discuss every single patient case that walks through the door. We discuss your health history, your tests, and if we feel like our office can help you. Instead of seeing just one doctor, it’s like you have a full team to help you.
