I’ve never been a believer in Chiropractic, I’ve never been a non-believer – I just didn’t know much about it. That is until I met Dr. Wheeler and he changed my life.
Twenty-five years ago I was in an auto accident, with no apparent injury I was not treated at the scene. Soon after I began experience muscle tightness and spasms in my back and shoulders, loss of range-of-motion in my neck and severe debilitating headaches.
Over the years I have been treated by numerous medical doctors with medications (muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory), injections (lidocain), cervical nerve blocks (three to date), and physical therapy sessions (three different times). These would work for a very limited amount of time before the pain and stiffness would return.
I have resorted over the years to paying out of pocket for massage therapy as it was the only thing that would offer me relief from these symptoms. My current L.M.T. Tish Wiley asked me why I haven’t seen a chiropractor in the past, and that she thought it would help. I replied that no one has ever suggested that I see a chiropractor and that my insurance wouldn’t cover it.
I took Ms. Wiley up on her suggestion and booked an appointment with Dr. Wheeler. I was very anxious on the day of my appointment and I have to admit a little frightened. Dr. Wheeler took the time to explain what I needed to know about chiropractic and made sure that I fully understood what he was going to do before he began the adjustment.
In just a few quick and pain free minutes we were done and he asked me how I felt. I was amazed at how I felt! The pain was gone instantly, my range of motion improved dramatically. But I was still a little skeptical – how long would this relief last?
Three weeks later I returned for my next visit, three weeks of a new me, a new life! I still have the physical abnormalities caused by the accident and always will unless I resort to surgery. But my pain is managed, my headaches are almost non-existent, my range of motion is greatly increased and my quality of life is back.
Dr. Wheeler has performed what no other medical practitioner has been able to do over the past 25 years. And to him I own my profound gratitude.
