Kris came back to the office after being away for 2 years. He had previous success with us helping him with a herniated disc in his lower back. As a construction worker, he depends on his body for his livelihood; so taking care of it is an absolute necessity. Pain that keeps people from working means that there’s no paycheck at the end of the week. Construction workers also brave the elements each day and are faced with a variety of challenges, both physical and mental.
Kris’s symptoms from his return examination revealed tight lower back muscles, spinal subluxations in L4 and L5 as well as the sacral base. Muscle testing also revealed weak hip flexors and tight hamstrings. He had also mentioned that he was getting debilitating dizzy spells at least 4-5 times per day. This was very dangerous because of his need to work in a basket sometimes 20-40 feet off of the floor. Vertigo at the wrong time could be fatal in this situation. Cervical compression was found at levels C2-C5.
Within 4 visits Kris was 70% improved – his pain was way down and the dizzy spells stopped altogether. We accomplished this through bio-mechanical alignment, chiropractic adjustments, cold laser therapy and orthotics. He will be promoted to wellness care if he desires or, after a few more visits, he can come in on an as needed basis.
This is one example of how straightforward it is to fix seemingly complex problems. I always wonder what outcome would have occurred if the cause of his problem had not been found (and how much wasted time and money it would have cost not only Kris, but his employer).
We have developed a protocol to analyze and correct problems in as few visits as possible. If you are suffering from a health issue, please give us a call and we’ll tell you if we can help. Happy holidays.
