Chiropractic Symptom: Foot Pain
Dr. Elliott and Staff:
Six years ago I suffered a back injury requiring surgery. Some bone fragments were removed, but nothing else was done. I have been suffering pain in my lower back, hips and feet for six years; all the while I was taking pain medicine which did not relieve my pain. The pain and side effects [from the medication I was taking] were so bad that I couldn't sleep. Finally, the pain forced me into early retirement. Then in February of 2006 the pain level increased and my doctor diagnosed me as a diabetic; it was at this time that I learned that I had Diabetic Neuropathy.
When I started treatment for my back pain I was relieved of the back pain very quickly and received many other benefits. Now that I had relief from extremely painful Diabetic Neuropathy, I was able to sleep better; I was able to start exercising again and in a few months I lost more than 50 pounds. I feel much better and now able to enjoy the activities the pain kept me from doing.
This letter of thanks and appreciation seems to be very short and inadequate to express my thanks. I wish I were better able to explain in words the years of pain and problematic side effects of medication and I suffered from for so long-which I have been relieved of thanks to Elliott SONAR Clinic.
Thanks to all of you!
To Doctors & Staff:
The reason for this letter is to express some of the help I have received from your treatment.
First of all I would like to commend your entire staff on their warm and friendly attitude. As for my treatment, I have had chronic low back pain for years, due to curvature of the spine, auto injury, incorrect lifting and have had to wear a heel pad in my left shoe. I also have TMJ, neck and shoulder pain. Have had classic migraines since the age of 12 years old.
Since the first week of treatment I have not had but one flare-up of low back pain and that was because I over did some yard work. [Edging and sweeping]
My TMJ is much improved; shoulders and neck are progressively getting better. Had some soreness next day, but nothing compared to hand-adjusting. Range of motion in neck is great. I have not had a migraine since I started treatment. I also have been sleeping better [a more restful sleep]. I have been able to leave the heel pad out of my shoe.
One thing in addition to getting better is that this treatment itself is painless.
Well, that's kind of a rough draft of the help I've received from your chiropractic care.
Thank you and God bless,
