Testimonials: Shoulder Pain

Carol McDonald

As I get older, I now see how my past experiences affected my body. We should take better care or it comes back to haunt us. For over 16 years I have suffered with my body hurting and making my life be less than it should. My knee, hip, back and shoulders remind me daily of a miserable life. I began treatment with Dr. Jeff a couple of weeks before Christmas 2004.

I am an anxious person and was skeptical about going to a chiropractor. My earlier experiences with different doctors over the years and different pain medicines just made days tolerable, but the pain never completely went away. I just learned to push through and keep going. My sister has been treated and was having relief. My stepfather would see one in Columbus—he told me, “Go 3 times, if you’re not better, quit!”

Well, I’m happy to say that after 3 visits I was better and continue to a normal life, drug-free, pain-free and happy!

My right shoulder problem started four years ago after a motorcycle accident.  My lower back problems started about 8 month ago.  My shoulder would hurt and burn.  My lower back ached.  I tried to ignore the problems, then took ibuprofen figuring it was just a part of life.  I continued my daily life but was always aware of my pain.  I first saw Dr. Jeff on February 5, 2006.  I can’t believe my results so far!  It hasn’t only helped the problems I talked to him about, but it has even helped my mood!  I would definitely recommend chiropractic care and Dr. Jeff especially because he is very gentle and explains everything to you along the way.

When I joined the army in June 1980, I began getting a pain in the left shoulder that radiated to my neck. It felt as if my neck needed a good stretching. My left shoulder blade became numb. To top it all off, I dislocated my left shoulder in 1981. All the military doctors either wanted to give pills or attributed it to the dislocation.

My wife introduced me to Franks Chiropractic about 3 years ago. With the “workout” that Dr. Rick and Dr. Ted gave me, I was convinced that, with time, my problem would correct itself.

I became the first patient at the Watkinsville office and was seen by Dr. Roger. He continued working on my neck and shoulder until he left. Then came Dr. Brian. I realize that the other chiropractors had something to do with it, but the “workout” that Dr. Brian has given my neck and shoulder has totally eliminated the pain.

I have recommended chiropractic care to a lot of my friends who complained a lot that you never get better and always have to go back. I try to explain that, in my case, my injury was 20 years old. It isn’t going to be cured in one miracle visit. Besides, it’s better than surgery. Franks Chiropractic has certainly worked for me.

Keep up the good work!

I’ve suffered from lower back, shoulder, and neck pain for many years. For the last 7 years I have treated myself to massage therapy sessions twice a month. While the massage therapy has kept me going, I’ve always wondered what a Chiropractor could do for me.

I’ve been bucked off a horse, and I’ve fallen down a flight of stairs (no alcohol was involved!) Actually it was a simple step over the baby gate that got me to seek out chiropractic care. As I stepped over the baby gate, I felt a “pop” in my back and spent the next 2 days unable to stand erect without significant pain.

My massage therapist had recommended Dr. Jeff’s office to me on numerous occasions so I contacted them immediately after my incident. I’ve been seeing Dr. Jeff now for the past 3 months and I must admit I feel better than I have in a long time. My acute problem began to improve with my very first adjustment and I find myself looking forward to my scheduled visits. This, of course, is odd because I have never been one to go to the doctor. Since seeking Chiropractic care, my sinus and digestive problems have improved as well.

I would highly recommend Chiropractic care to everyone, especially if you suffer from chronic back or neck problems. Who knows, it might help with other problems you may have as well.

I have had lower back pain and aching in my right leg for as long as I can remember.  My shoulder and right arm and hand have hurt and had tingling and numbness for 10+ years.  I just figured I was going to hurt or eventually have to have surgery, which I did not want to do.

I have been receiving chiropractic care for about 1 ½ months.  My back and leg no longer hurt and my right shoulder and arm do not hurt nor is there any numbness. 

    It works!
