Dear Dr. Patrick ,
I just want to give you a great big Hallelujah shout out for your expertise. Baker Chiropractic and Wellness Center has truly been a Godsend. I originally visited your Fairfield office due to a car accident in March 2013. I was in excruciating pain and I was provided immediate relief through your specialized chiropractic care for my back, neck, and shoulder pain.
I gained such relief & energy that I was able to return to enjoying quality of life again after just a few weeks of treatment. I felt so alive after completing your recommended treatment plan in June 2013, that I decided to not return for maintenance care as you had so sincerely suggested.
Well, while on vacation In July 2016, I woke up in excruciating pain to the point that I literally could not walk or bare any weight on my lower back to left buttock and leg. The pain was radiating through my left leg to foot and I was not able to walk without assistance of someone.
As recommended by my primary physician, I was taking steroid pain medicine around the clock every 4-6 hours only to get little if any relief. Upon my return home the pain had magnified to an off the chart level. Our family physician ordered an MRI which disclosed that I had two (2) pinched nerves pressing against a bulging herniated disc. I was referred to a neurosurgeon for further evaluation regarding the results of the MRI. After a consultation meeting with a surgeon, I was advised that an epidural injection should relieve the excruciating pain; after which I would be reevaluated for possible back surgery. I had the injection on August 5, 2016, which relieved the excruciating pain but the pain returned after a few days. I still was not able to sit, stand, or walk without the assistance of someone. I was basically restricted to mostly lying down while taking pain medicine.
At the persistence of my husband, I called Baker Chiropractic and Wellness on August 9th and was advised to come into the office the next day. I entered the office with tears from the severity of the pain I was still experiencing. Dr Patrick immediately performed spine adjustments and manipulations of which I felt immediate relief. I continued to see Dr. Patrick three (3) times a week and each day I became stronger with less pain. I was sitting, standing, and walking again on my own and enjoying my quality of life again! However, I was not able to continue recommended maintenance visits due to insurance policy demanding that I seek physical therapy instead of chiropractic care.
Thus, I was forced to go through physical therapy from September through December 2016. The therapy however was not as effective as the healing adjustments/spinal manipulative therapy that I received by Dr. Patrick and his team. But as fate would have it; while sitting at a red traffic light On April 21, 2017, I was abruptly rear-ended by an oncoming car. So once again, I returned to receive care from Dr. Patrick and Baker Chiropractic and Wellness Center.
I am writing this testimony in June 2017, with such appreciation for the special care and attention I have received from Dr. Patrick and his staff. I am an advocate believer of holistic healing and can say that I received such healing by following through with the recommended spine adjustments and manipulations along with other therapeutic treatments for pain management as performed and/or suggested you.
So again, a great BIG Hallelujah shout out to you Dr. Patrick and your love for people and your expertise in chiropractic healing through appropriately applied spinal and other body adjustments, manipulations, etc as deem necessary for a complete outcome of Wellness.
Thank you so much!!!
