Testimonials: Degenerative Disc Disease

Bunny Lawton

When I began treatment I could not turn over in bed without extreme pain, could not use my right leg to climb stairs, could lurch around but not walk properly.

I was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease and Stenosis and without much hope.

I had been to Athens Orthopedic, Athens Sports Medicine, The Spinal Clinic, and whatever they did, it didn’t work. Finally, I went to the Pain Clinic and got many injections in my hip and back. No good, either!

A friend recommended Dr. Jeff and I called immediately. In about two months, I could walk without a limp, climb stairs; though, my right leg is a little weak. I no longer suffer at night and feel generally so much better that I am ever grateful that I was referred and came because what Dr. Jeff did and said benefited me so much.

Dr. Jeff is kind, honest, fair, trustworthy and skilled! I thank him very much!

success story

My name is Deanna, I am 25 yrs old and I have had stomach problems most all of my life the pains were so bad I would have sweats and my legs would get weak after just one pain that would last for about 10 seconds. they slowly started getting more frequent as I got older. I decided to go to the doctor and I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and given a bunch of medicine samples. the medicine helped but i soon ran out of samples and since I was told that I could not do anything but take medicine for the pain just to cover up the symptoms it was not worth paying the doctors fees and staying on medicine all of my life. I was also told that 80% of the population had the same problem. I found out that they diagnose irritable bowel syndrome when they cannot find anything else wrong so I did not really get anything accomplished by going to the doctor.
that was about 2 yrs ago. I thought maybe I was lactose intolerant so I decided to limit my ice cream even though it is one of my favorite foods.even worse than that I had to limit my spicy foods.
that was very hard because, I have never had to worry about what I ate before. I had a friend that kept telling me i need to see a chiropractor but being hard headed and uneducated about chiropractic care I never made it. finally I applied for a job at franks chiropractic life center and attended one of dr. craig’s health talks then I knew i had to try chiropractic care especially since it is the only theory on our bodies that make sense. I started up as a patient on march 15th, 2001, they decided to take x-rays to see what was going on. when Dr. Craig looked at my x-rays he showed me where i had some nerve enterference.
one of the vertebras in my spine were out of place and it was pressing on the nerves that just so happened to go to my stomach. I then started getting adjusted by Dr. Craig, and it is now may 8thand I have only once had pain in my stomach and then I was cleaning and strained my back. i soon was adjusted and i have not had anymore problems with my stomach at all and I no longer have to worry so much about what I eat. it is very nice to not have to carry a bottle of pepto bismol wherever I go. i now realize that everyone can benefit from chiropractic care because, I know how great I feel compared to before and I don’t have to take medicine to feel that way. I would recommend Dr. Marlow and Dr. Davenport to anyone they are great doctors and most important they know the world needs chiropractic care.
