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. He came full speed and rear ended me while I was sitting at a red light. I remember looking back into the rear view mirror as the car was getting closer. The car didn't stop 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 wounds, 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 move my toes. No paralysis, thank God.
I was taken to the emergency room and took an x-ray 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 correct some of the problems it was either that or pills while it healed.
The thought of surgery made me remember my uncle. He had a bad back and had undergone many back surgeries. He lived from walker to wheelchair for many years. It was a terrible thought. I had a cane to help me walk, I felt like an old person and I was only 34! It went on like this for a couple of months. I couldn't stand it anymore. I figured surgery had to be easier than this. I signed up to get my first surgery, and the memory of my uncle kept playing in my head. I don't want to be like that.
I was frustrated 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 was looking 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 say hello. He wanted to grab some dinner, I let him know that my back wouldn't allow it. He was disappointed, but then what 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 explain that this was past the help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't listen. 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 went into Shelly's office and Daniel showed up for moral support. Shelly took a few X-Rays and did some tests with me. She had me lay down, and started realigning my back. I heard a crunch 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 finished I got up with a grin on my face. I could feel something was different...Better. I had a huge list of questions for Shelly and 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 without my cane in a few weeks. I was so impressed 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 use a cane anymore, and pain killers are a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
