Mary Holbert is our current Featured Patient. Mary hurt her knee which snowballed into a variety of other problems. She was reliant on taking 2-4 Aleve per day. After 4 years, she decide to look for a better answer to relieve her pain. That’s when she turned to Baker Chiropractic and Wellness. Here is Mary’s story:
It all started in the Fall of 2007 when I hurt my knee. My regular physician sent me to physical therapy for my back. I started taking 2-4 Aleve per day. My back felt better but my knee continued to hurt. I began to walk funny because of the knee pain. My whole body got messed up because of my walk.
I was afraid of chiropractic care even though my husband and daughter had been seeing Dr. Baker for over 2 years. I had no choice but to go because by then I had taken more than 2,820 Aleve over the span of 4 years. I bought my Aleve from Sam’s Club in the big 500 count bottles and always carried them with me, but now I don’t even think about them. I also took Benadryl and Sudafed on a regular basis and ever since my first adjustment I no longer have taken either of those. Also, I had only taken 14 Aleve in the first 2 months of my chiropractic care.
My x-rays showed that I had no curve in my lower back, my spine was crooked and I had a disk pressing into my spinal cord. I’ll be honest – the first 4-6 weeks of my care, I felt worse and wanted to quit. Dr. Baker told me to hang in there and that I wasn’t going to get better overnight when it took years to get in this shape. By the 10th week, I had energy and was able to move again. Suddenly the pain was disappearing and I was feeling good. I’m not 100% yet, but I am getting there with regular chiropractic adjustments.
My whole life is changing because of it. I’m 58 years old and not ready to sit in a rocker for the rest of my life. I have 8 grandkids with another on the way and a great grandchild due in March. I want to enjoy life with them. I would definitely recommend to everyone to try chiropractic first before giving up or having surgery. Dr. Baker is fantastic and the girls in the office are so sweet and helpful. They make you feel right at home. And if you hurt at anytime, Olivia and Jess will help with therapy. My knee feels great now! My husband is a Happy Caption and I am his Happy First Mate. Life is worth living again! Thanks Baker Chiropractic!”
