So let me start by saying that I am a chiropractor (that's not my confession though). I love what I do. I see miracles everyday in the office. Patients' success stories are incredible. Some patients have reported improvements in hearing, vision, balance, energy, and life! Those are just the positive side effects while we are fixing their back pain, neck pain, and headaches. So I'm going to start by telling you about a time when chiropractic failed...
I am sitting in a classroom in chiropractic college for the last two years facing the same direction, slightly twisted and leaning. Gradually I start to feel a little "pinch" in the butt. Each day it grows more painful and spreads in location. Uh oh, I've got the dreaded S word, SCIATICA!
No worries I think. I'm in chiropractic school. An adjustment will fix it easily, right?
I am getting adjusted for 3 weeks straight, three times a week. Nine treatments and I feel just as bad as the first day it started. My pain is so bad that I pull over my car on the side of the freeway to stretch because the pain is too intense. I'm afraid it's going to hit me at a time when I won't be able to control it!
I set up an appointment with a different chiropractor who tells me that chiropractic adjustments won't fix my problem. What!? Then what will?
He tells me that I need to stretch muscles in my legs. "That sounds even crazier" I think to myself. I have nothing to lose so I decide to give it a try. Within 1 day my pain subsides. One week and it is halfway gone. One month later and my pain is completely gone!
Why do I tell you this story? It's what inspired me to create Coastal Integrative Healthcare. I dreamed of a place where a patient can come and receive the best care with a TEAM of professionals from different backgrounds all working under one roof to get the patient well.
We have medical professionals like nurse practitioners and medical doctors on our team. We have chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy professionals all working to help YOU.
Our goal is to correct the cause of the problem, NOT to cover up the symptoms.
