I get upset when I think about my car accident in 4 years ago. It changed my life. I was driving home from a night out with friends, when I was stuck by a drunk driver. He came full speed and rear ended me while I was sitting at a stop sign. I remember looking through the rear view mirror as the car was approaching. The car didn't stop and I hardly had time to react. The impact was explosive. I blacked out. I awoke with the paramedics hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no obvious injuries, and asked me if I had any pain in my body. I told them that my back was in serious pain. They had me move my legs and move my toes. I wasn't Paralized, thank God.
They took me 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 surgery to fix some of the problems it was either that or medication while it healed.
The thought of surgery had me thinking about my uncle. He had back problems 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 around, 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 any longer. I figured surgery had to be better 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 horrible pain shooting down my leg while I layed there. The thought of having to be like this for the rest of my life was overwhelming. A whole bottle of pain killers was looking like an option, I prayed for anything better.
A friend of mine called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to talk. Daniel wanted to get some dinner, I let him know that my back I was hurting too much. He was disappointed, but then what he told me was the first glimps of hope I had heard in a while. 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 the severity of my condition. I tried to tell him that this was beyond 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. Now They 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 some X-Rays and did some diagnostics 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 weight on my back had. I felt it throughout my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she was done I got up with a grin on my face. I could tell something was different...Better. I had a huge 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 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 medicine is a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
