Chronic pain is horrible. I know this because I lived with it for years. I am not the type to take a lot of pills because I saw someone very close to me become addicted to pain medication. I did not want the same thing to happen to me, so I just took it the best I could. I did try a lot of things before finally finding the answers that I needed with a chiropractor in Phoenix AZ. Before I went to his office, I had tried several things that my regular doctor suggested. I also tried acupuncture, physical therapy, hypnosis and other things, but nothing took my pain away.
I had not tried a chiropractor though, and I realized after reading about everything they do that I probably should have seen one from the moment my pain started. I felt even more confident when they started to devise a plan around me rather than giving me a standard plan that might work for some but not others. I have a feeling that is what had been happening to me at other places I have gone to, so it is no wonder that none of them helped me.
They did not even start to devise this plan until they had all the information they needed to do so. That meant looking over the areas where I was hurting, having me do things that are easy for others but near impossible for me so they can see exactly when the pain begins, and also doing some imaging tests because they can only surmise without those. As a result of the time they devoted to figuring out why I was hurting, they were able to come up with a plan that involved injections, massage, and adjustments. I also have new exercises that I do on the days when I don’t go there, and the end result is, in my eyes, a miracle. The pain is slowly but surely leaving, and this is the best I have felt in many years.
