My emotions get the best of me when I think about the car accident I was 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. she was driving full speed and hit me from behind while I was sitting at a stop sign. I remember looking back into the rear view mirror as the car was getting closer. 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 external injuries, and asked me if I had any pain in my body. I let them know that my back was in alot of pain. They had me move my legs and wiggle my toes. No paralysis, thank God.
They took me to the emergency room they took an x-ray 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 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 painful 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 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 live 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 be like this anymore was overwhelming. A whole bottle of pain killers was looking like an option, I prayed for anything else.
A friend of mine called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to say hello. Daniel wanted to get 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 glimmer 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 past any 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. Now 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 felt a crunch in my back and it was like a miracle, a pressure that I had in my back released. I felt it throughout my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she was done I sat 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 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 walk with a cane anymore, and pills are a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
