When I first came to see Dr. John, I had chronic pain and stiffness in my neck and upper back. The pain and numbness had moved into my arm. The cause of my symptoms was from a condition called Forward Head Posture, degenerative over a long period of time. Since I have been treating with Dr. John the pain has decreased. Flexibility and motion are improving. I am also less fatigued by routine activities. I feel a total life and health improvement from what I have learned of the importance of maintaining a healthy spine. A healthy housing for our central nervous system allows our bodies to function as they should, faster healing with less medication, fewer allergies, less sickness, sleeping better and feeling good. I used to feel nausea after lying on my back for only a few seconds. My nerves had become so pinched off I didn’t realize all of the problems I was living with, especially my hard nights of sleep, every night, waking up feeling bad — and bad was just normal. After several weeks of treatments and therapy exercises I began sleeping better. I began to dream again — something I realize now that I haven’t done for a long, long time. I feel great — and inspired!
In mid-January of this year I began experiencing extreme weakness in my left leg and arm. What started as weakness quickly progressed to an involuntary closing of my left hand. These episodes began occurring several times throughout the day. When I began treatment at Chait Chiropractic I was taking three pills each day to control my symptoms. I have slowly weaned myself off of the medication going from three pills to two pills to one pill to half a pill. It’s now been almost a month of no pills and no symptoms! The knowledge I received from Dr. John has resulted in some great lifestyle changes for me. I feel good. I am not tired or run-down.
My symptoms when I came in to see Dr. John were migraine headaches, neck pain, upper back pain and lower back pain. I believe these symptoms were a result from a number of falls when I was younger and many, many years of poor posture. I have been seeing Dr. John three times a week for four weeks. In that time, I have had one migraine headache (which didn’t last the usual three days). Back and neck pain is at a minimum and most of the stiffness is gone. I feel more relaxed when I stand. I have a feeling of not being weighed down. My husband has noticed a change in my posture! I find coming to Dr. Chait’s office a pleasant experience and all the patients I have met are very friendly. When there are a number of patients doing their exercises, we all seem to have a good time even though we think it is torture (my sense of humor)!
In 1998, I was in an automobile accident that had me in a wheelchair because I was unable to walk. I also had paralysis on my right side because of a brain injury from the accident. I started seeing Dr. John in March of 1999. Now I am walking and enjoying life. I come in to see Dr. John twice a week for adjustments and cervical traction. I also workout six days a week at the gym. My life is coming back to a bright future and it’s all because of Dr. John. The traction is for my brain stem. The brain stem is the secret in life. The body can heals itself if your neck has a curve and the brain stem is relaxed. Thanks again “Doc,” you really changed my life.
My symptoms came on insidiously through lifting my baby girl and my physically demanding job as a physical therapist. When I came in to see Dr. John, I could not turn my head to the left. I had severe pain in my neck and my upper and low back with activity. After one month of treatment my symptoms are 90% better. I have no neck pain now and my back and thoracic pain is minimal. Since beginning consistent chiropractic treatment to correct my spine, I believe my posture is better and I have more energy. I am so glad that I found Dr. Chait. He has helped me tremendously. My husband noticed that I do not complain of back pain anymore. I realized the other day that I cleaned my entire house without a break because of back pain or fatigue!
When I first came to see Dr. John, I could hardly move without feeling extreme pain in my lower back and the back of my legs and feet, and then the pain would shoot up into my neck. I think the pain came from many different falls though out my life. Some falls in high school during gym activities and a couple of falls on concrete at a wastewater treatment plant. The symptoms improved slowly once I began seeing Dr. John. It took time because we had to correct my spine, which takes time. My body had a lifetime of traumas, and you can’t fix that overnight. An unexpected benefit from chiropractic was that my allergy symptoms improved. I have suffered from allergies since I was 13 years old. I am 36 years old, and I rarely have any problems. Also my immunity has improved so much I rarely get sick. I am leaving this area and sad not to have Dr. Chait as my chiropractor. I strongly recommend anyone to visit this chiropractic center and let Dr. Chait help the body heal itself. If it wasn’t for chiropractic, I would not be walking, jumping or even lifting anything today! Thanks Dr. Chait!
I have had three back injuries in my life time. When I came in to see Dr. John, I had upper and lower back pain and numbness in my feet and legs. I have been seeing Dr. John for several years. My pain and numbness have improved. I sleep better and can train longer at the gym. When I was gone on a long vacation, I was unable to do 15 minutes on a cross-trainer before pain and numbness would set in. Back from vacation after only two visits to Dr. John, I was back to 45 to 60 minutes on the cross-trainer. -Bob
