My emotions get the best of me when I think about the car accident I was in 4 years ago. I was driving home from a night out with friends, when I was stuck by a drunk driver. It changed my life. she was driving full speed and rear ended me while I was sitting at a stop sign. I remember looking back into the rear view mirror as the car was getting closer. The car didn't stop and I barely had time to react. The crash was terrifying. I blacked out. I awoke with the paramedics hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no external wounds, and asked me if I felt any pain in my body. I told them that my back was in serious pain. They had me move my legs and wiggle my toes. I wasn't Paralized, thank God.
I was taken to the emergency room and took x-rays of my back, I had some hairline fractures on my tailbone and some of my discs had shifted out of place. The doctor suggested surgery to fix some of the problems it was either that or medication while it healed.
The thought of surgery made me remember my uncle. He had a bad back and had undergone many back surgeries. He lived from walker to wheelchair for many years. It was a scary thought. I had a cane to help me walk, I felt like an old man and I was only 34! It went on like this for two months. I couldn't take it anymore. I thought sugery would be better than this. I signed up to get my first surgery, and the thought of my uncle kept playing in my head. I don't want to live like that.
I was frustrated to the point of tears one night after not being able to move without horrible pain shooting down my leg while I layed there. The thought of having to live like this anymore was overwhelming. A whole bottle of pain killers was looking like an option, I prayed for something else.
A friend of mine called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to talk. He wanted to get some dinner, I let him know that my back wouldn't allow it. He was disappointed, but then what he told me was the first glimmer of hope I had heard in a long time. He said, You're in luck Ray, My wife is a chiropractor. "She'll get you better in no time." His tone made me think he didn't not understand the severity of my condition. I tried to tell him that this was beyond any help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't listen. He set me up to meet with his wife Shelly the next day. I was intrigued, I never went to chiropractors cause I always relied on medical doctors. since They had failed me and I figured I"d try another method.
I went into Shelly's office and Daniel showed up for moral support. Shelly took some X-Rays and did some tests with me. She had me lay down, and started realigning my back. I felt a pop in my back and it was like a miracle, a pressure that I had in my back released. I felt it throughout my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she was done I got up with a grin on my face. I could feel something was different...Better. I had a huge list of questions for Shelly which she answered with a grace and patience like no other. She Actually took the time to listen to all my concerns unlike Dr. Joe Schmo who just wanted to get the best bang for his buck.
She saw my hope and enthusiasm, to which she told me that she would have me walking without my cane in a few weeks. I was so impressed with my first visit I cancelled my surgery.
I continued my treatment with them and I still go at least once a week. I don't use a cane anymore, and pain killers are a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
