A Long-Term Solution Found in Chiropractic

Initially I sought Chiropractic care when I was suffering from pain in my legs. I was having trouble walking from one side of the UNMC campus to the other side. At that time my work there required me to walk across campus several times a day. We had laboratories on both sides. I talked to my doctor about this and she prescribed Hydrocodone for the pain. I decided that this was not a long term solution. I then went to see a neurosurgeon for an evaluation. He decided that it was my back that was causing the pain in my legs. He sent me to physical therapy for several months. This helped for awhile. We decided that I couldn’t do physical therapy forever. The neurosurgeon said that he could do surgery on my back, but he probably would have to do another one and another one as my back changed. I decided that I didn’t want any surgery and looked for another solution. My friend at work was seeing a chiropractor for her back pain. I asked her who she was seeing. She said that she was seeing Dr. Joel and recommended him. So I set up an appointment to be evaluated to see if he could help me. Dr. Joel set me up with a care plan that I have been following for the past several years.

I have learned so much about chiropractic care since starting at FFC. Before starting at FFC I knew nothing about chiropractic care. I have been pleasantly impressed at the results that have improved my health. I have learned that chiropractic care can influence my overall health, not just my ability to walk without pain. I have increased my level of physical exercise and I have not been ill except for one short bout with bronchitis two years ago.

I think Chiropractic care can improve your life if you are faithful to the care plan given you. The FFC team has been knowledgeable and has helped me to live a healthier life.
