I injured my back at work, and my whole back was in pain. I had pain from my neck all the way down to my lower back. I was unable to participate in any activity due to the pain. I went to five different doctors and physiotherapist, but nothing worked. My lawyer referred me to this clinic. They got rid of my pain, which was with me for a year. I got most of my range of motion back. I feel much better and am able to play sports again. When I first came in I was a cynic about chiropractors because I thought they weren’t ‘real’ doctors. I now disagree because I went through 18 months of pain and five doctors and a physiotherapist, all of which did absolutely nothing for me. I think everyone would benefit from chiropractic. If you are in pain or not you should get adjusted. It could change your life, it changed mine.
I experienced debilitating back pain such that I lost the use of my legs, a frightening experience and one that I unfortunately had endured 10 years earlier that was treated with conventional physiotherapy. The pain I endured during the weeks of physiotherapy was almost as debilitating as the condition the medieval-type treatments I received were supposedly addressing, such as being plugged into a suction / electro pulse machines, ultrasound treatments, etc., all of which made little or no difference and eliminated holistic healing human contact that in my opinion are critical to the healing process. After several weeks of treatment and seemingly no relief of my condition, I halted all further visits to the physiotherapy clinic and pressed on regardless. My lower back condition unfortunately returned February 2003 and was both stress and physical exertion related, however, my life partner commented on the seemingly ‘black art’ of chiropractic medicine as a potential means of treatment and relief, a recommendation based on her personal experience. I want to share with all the sufferers who seek relief that the holistic healing, comfort, and speedy recovery that I experienced through Alberta Back and Neck Rehab was incredible, and I would not hesitate in raising the flag to health and pain-free living to any who suffer the myriad of ailments that plague our respective human frames and highly recommend you contact the clinic after which, one can again embrace life.
