I get upset when I think about the car accident I was in 4 years ago. I was driving home from a night out with friends, when I was stuck by a drunk driver. It changed my life. she was driving full speed and hit me from behind while I was sitting at a red light. I remember looking through the rear view mirror as the car was approaching. The car wasn't slowing down and I barely had time to react. The crash was terrifying. I blacked out. I awoke with the EMS hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no external injuries, and asked me if I had any pain in my body. I let them know that my back was in serious pain. They had me move my legs and toes. No paralysis, thank God.
I was taken to the emergency room they took x-rays of my back, I had some hairline fractures on my tailbone and some of my discs had shifted out of place. The doctor suggested a dangerous sergical procedure to fix some of the issues it was either that or pills while it healed.
The thought of surgery had me thinking about my uncle. He had a bad back and had undergone alot of back surgeries. He lived from walker to wheelchair for many years. It was a painful thought. I had a cane to help me around, I felt like an old person and I was only 34! It went on like this for two months. I couldn't take it anymore. I thought sugery would be easier than this. I signed up to get my first surgery, and the thought of my uncle kept playing in my head. I don't want to be like that.
I was upset to the point of tears one night after not being able to move without unbearable pain shooting down my leg while I layed there. The thought of having to live like this anymore was overwhelming. A whole bottle of pain killers started to look like an option, I prayed for something better.
My friend called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to talk. He wanted to get some dinner, I told him about my accident and that my back wouldn't allow it. He was disappointed. The next thing he told me was the first glimps of hope I had heard in a long time. He said, You're in luck Ray, My wife is a chiropractor. "She'll get you fixed up in no time." His tone made me think he didn't not understand how bad my contidion was. I tried to tell him that this was past any help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't hear it. He set me up an appointment with his wife Shelly the next day. I was intrigued, I never went to chiropractors cause I always relied on medical doctors. since Medical Doctors had failed me and I figured I"d try another method.
I walked into Shelly's office and Daniel showed up for moral support. Shelly took some X-Rays and did some diagnostics with me. She had me lay down, and started realigning my back. I heard a pop in my back and it was like a miracle, a pressure that I had in my back released. I felt it all through my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she was done I got up with a grin on my face. I could feel something was different...Better. I had a long list of questions for Shelly which she answered with a grace and patience like no other. She Actually took some time to listen to all my concerns unlike Dr. Joe Schmo who wanted to get the best bang for his buck.
She saw my hope and enthusiasm, to which she told me that she would have me walking like before in a few weeks. I was so happy with my first visit I cancelled my surgery.
I continued my treatment with them and I still go at least once a week. I don't walk with a cane anymore, and pain killers are a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
