I had been experiencing neck pain and back pain for approximately 2-3 years. Like everyone else, I have a busy schedule and put off any treatment.
Over time, the pain would get worse as well as the lack of maneuverability. I went to a physical therapist and started receiving treatment that lasted for 10 visits. At the end of those visits, I had a series of exercises to do with the advice to continue on a daily basis until “things loosened up” then do them on an as needed basis. The problem was that a year later, I was still doing those exercises daily with little to no results. As time went on, the pain still continued to increase and simple things like getting in and out of a car became unbearable let alone not being able to keep up with my kids. So many activities became more and more limited.
I began to look for other options and researched online. This included several websites regarding chiropractic care including the chiropractor’s education and experience. When I came across Baker Chiropractic Care and Wellness, I found so much information on their website, more than anyone else they answered so many questions. One of the things that caught my eye was that they centered their treatment on correcting the problem and not treating the symptoms or using medications.
Up to this point, I’ve never had any experience with chiropractic care and didn’t think about it enough really to be skeptic. Any passing thought with this type of treatment I dismissed with little consideration. However, I called and made an appointment. When that day came, I met several employees, all of which were every bit as friendly as I read from previous testimonials.
During my initial evaluation, I was asked about headaches. I told them I get headaches frequently, not realizing this issue would be related to the condition my spine was in. Everything was explained up front as to how the treatment was customized for my situation and what I could expect.
I’ve been a patient at Baker Chiropractic Care and Wellness since February of 2015 and I’ve noticed a big difference literally after my first adjustment with Dr. Garrett Knuckles. I couldn’t believe how much my maneuverability came back and how the pain decreased. What I consider a bonus is the amount of headaches I get significantly decreased as well. When I reviewed my x-rays with Dr. Garrett, it became an eye opening experience as to how serious the condition my spine was in.
After a few adjustments, I received my home care kit and exercises to do that directly relate to my condition. Unlike the exercises I received from physical therapy, these exercises actually work! The longer I’ve been doing them, the better the results. As I continue with my adjustments and home care, my condition is improving. I’m already able to participate with my kids in their sporting activities and perform simple tasks throughout my work day with more flexibility and less pain. I’ve also become more aware of sustaining a better posture with this experience and have had adjustments with Dr. Paul Baker as well.
I read the book Enlightening Adjusting and Saving Lives by Dr’s. Paul and Patrick Baker. It’s filled with numerous patients talking about their specific conditions and the results of their treatment. Although this book is very inspiring, I have to admit, I didn’t think I would receive such results since my spine is in a phase 3 condition. However it didn’t take long for me to see improvements first hand. This has inspired me to set a goal of improving my spine alignment to a phase 1 or better yet…..what would be considered a normal phase!
I don’t want to think where I would be if I didn’t make the call to Baker Chiropractic and Wellness. With everything I’ve learned so far, I would recommend everyone to give this a try and see for yourself.
Thank you Dr. Paul, Dr. Garrett, and staff!*
