About a year ago, I developed a pain in my hip area which became extremely painful. I also began to have little aches and pains in my back and joint areas that seemed normal with advancing years but which were starting to restrict my activity level. I had mentioned these problems on visits to my general practitioner but not action was taken.
At Christmas, my husband and sons gave me gift certificates for several types of massage. When I mentioned my hip problem, I was told that I might find some relief from visits to a chiropractor.
I had never been to a chiropractor but I have been increasingly interested in taking care of my health in ways that did not involve medication and which seemed more natural and preventative. I was evaluated at Davenport Family Chiropractic and a treatment plan was proposed.
One big surprise was that one of my legs was at least a ½ inch shorter that the other leg. I went to a podiatrist and got a lift for my shoe. Within 2 days I no longer had hip pain. I was amazed that the solution to such intense pain was so quick and easy.
I am new in my treatment so at this time I am still getting 3 adjustments a week. I have already noticed improvement with all my little aches and pains. I am really feeling much better and am encouraged that the aging process may not have to be as painful and debilitating as I had supposed.
My plan is to finish my treatment program and then to continue with maintenance adjustments as advised. I would definitely recommend chiropractic care and have already done so to several friends and acquaintances.
