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 was driving full speed and rear ended me while I was sitting at a red light. 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 woke up with the EMS hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no obvious wounds, and asked me if I felt any pain in my body. I told them that my back was in alot of pain. They had me move my legs and toes. I could move them, thank God.
I was taken to the emergency room they took x-rays of my back, I had a hairline fracture 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 issues it was either that or medication while it healed.
The thought of surgery made me remember my uncle. He had back problems and had undergone many back surgeries. He lived from walker to wheelchair for many years. It was a scary thought. I had a cane to help me around, I felt like an old man and I was only 34! It went on like this for a couple of months. I couldn't take 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 live like that.
I was upset to the point of tears one night after not being able to move without terrible 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 anything better.
My friend 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 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 the severity of my condition. I tried to tell him that this was beyond the 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 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 weight on my back had. I felt it all through my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she was done I sat 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 the time to listen to all my concerns unlike Dr. Joe Schmo who just 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 medication is a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
