With years of working in an office environment and playing sand volleyball I felt somewhat healthy but then this pain started creeping in. The pain was randomly becoming more prevalent in my neck and shoulder area as well as my lower back.
Sleeping at night was interrupted by what I thought was stiffness in my back. My tailbone ached when I stood too long. I had shoulder and neck pains that led to getting cricks in my neck. My hips also were becoming tight that while driving in my car or sitting in my office chair was leading to pains. My pains weren't at all 100% of the time yet they were becoming more frequent and more impactful on my life.
I began discussing random pains and techniques to resolve the pain. Spending more and more time (12 months) trying to prevent, recover, rest, massage, OTC, pain meds, hydration, stretching. REPEAT. Then, I bought a new office chair, then less activity, then I discussed buying a new mattress. All efforts just lead me to fewer activities that I normally enjoyed.
Until a personal friend that works with athletes referred me to Dr. Powers. She stated that he could possibly offer some relief in a relatively short time. I made an appointment on that referral immediately.
Dr. Powers advised me that I would feel better fairly quickly honestly, I did to a degree, but not 100%. Dr. Powers also advised that with on-going chiropractic care I could establish long term health improvements. True to his word my pains were all gradually eliminated. I have even returned to doing activities at a caliber that I am happy with and I have no back pains while sleeping in the same bed.
I realized that ever since the beginning of my treatments with Dr. Powers, I have not missed work for allergies/flu which I typically would in the past.
I am optimistic the educational information and the treatments offered by Dr. Powers reinforced the healing ability of my own body. I'm just very pleased with the overall experience. My own loved ones have noticed my improvement and often discuss with me that I should have gone sooner!
