I started to come in for my back and therapy for my clavicle and neck and the surrounding area. I had been getting adjustments and therapy for a few months and then I also started to have kidney stone problems.
It was after a visit to the emergency room that I found out I was experiencing kidney stones. They sent me home from the ER and told me to come back if things got worse or if I had a fever over 101. I went home exhausted and went to sleep and then only a few hours later I woke up sweating. I took my temperature and it was well over 101. So I immediately went back. They were telling me that I needed to have surgery to get it out.
I was finally back to racing and my normal life at that point and I couldn’t imagine having to take even more time out of racing. I talked to Dr. Patrick Baker while I was in the emergency room and decided to not have the surgery. They came in to get me prepped and I told them I was going home.
Dr. Patrick gave me specific “kidney adjustments” and a supplement that helped dissolve the stones so that they could pass. I was scheduled for an Urologist appointment a few days later and they were pressuring me to have the surgery. I started to get mad because they were trying to make me do something that I did not want. I specifically remember telling them “if it makes you feel better then schedule me for the surgery, but I will not show up.”
I trusted Dr. Patrick to help get me through the kidney stones just as he helped me heal through my crash injuries and he did. It’s impossible to know where I would be without the chiropractic care I have received at Baker Chiropractic and Wellness, but I am very glad that I started going when I did.
Having Dr. Patrick help me with my kidney stones saved me from having to go through more surgeries. They took way longer to pass than I would have liked (if I had the option I would have never had them in the first place!), but they passed and I didn’t have to go through any extra misery that the other doctors were trying to do to me.
I am extremely grateful to everyone here for helping me through such tough times.*
