I Can’t Tell You How Happy I Am With My Progress After Having Had Chronic Sciatica for 20 Years

Chronic Sciatica Patient Robin Fristoe

I became a patient of Baker Chiropractic and Wellness by coincidence or I like to think of it as FATE. I was going to watch a TV show that I had recorded but before the show began there was a commercial for Baker Chiropractic and Wellness. On the commercial were two very nice looking & energetic guys talking about what they can do for people suffering from the same things that I was suffering with.

Now I’ve been to a chiropractor many times in years past so I was no stranger to that type of practice but something about what they were saying intrigued me so I listened further. Their whole delivery sold me & I thought, what the heck, let’s give them a call & see what it’s all about. On July 2, 2015 I became a patient of Baker Chiropractic and Wellness. It’s been three months & I’m here to sing their praises!

I have had chronic sciatica for about twenty years. Within the last few years I became a casual runner, nothing huge, just an occasional 5K for a good charity. This year I upped my game and ran the 10k Flying Pig. Shortly after the Flying Pig I really started to have trouble with my sciatica. It got to the point that when running I could no longer stop & walk when I had to catch my breath.

The pain in my back radiating down my buttocks & leg was so strong that I had to just stop and stand still. I was having difficulty walking up the steps to get into my house due to to the pain and weakness in my back & leg. I tried soaking in a hot tub after my runs but that didn’t help. I began taking more over the county anti- inflammatory medicine which in turn started to bother my stomach. I was becoming a mess! That’s when I saw the commercial and to this day, I have not seen the commercial since. That’s why I call it FATE.

My first day in the Baker Chiropractic and Wellness office was amazing. I had never had a chiropractic practice put me through tests the way they did. I then went into the room where they adjust you and this is when I met Dr. Garrett Knuckles. He was so sweet and kind and gave all indications that he truly cared. He told me that my back was in poor shape and he was so glad I came in. He explained that the disk in my lumbar area was very narrow but the good news was that since there still was some disc to work with they would get me back in shape. I have to admit, I was quite skeptical as it all seemed too good to be true.

I remember walking into the office on my second visit and everyone in the office knew my name. I was totally amazed! With any other doctor that I’ve gone to for years, no one in the office knew my name until I told them. Yet at Baker Chiropractic and Wellness, when you walk in everyone greets you and asks you how you’re doing today.

They’re also very accommodating to work with in scheduling appointments. I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting they have with the group of new patients. It is so informative. I can’t believe how much I learned and now I’m passing it onto my family and friends.

It’s been three months since I first walked into Baker Chiropractic and Wellness and I can’t tell you how happy I am with my progress. In three weeks I plan to run my first half marathon and it’s all thanks to Dr. Garrett and the staff at Baker Chiropractic and Wellness.

I did have to stop running for a bit, but looking back, that was a small sacrifice for the benefits I am reaping now.*
