I can sleep again at night without pain killers!!!
To Dr. Waterstone
I was in a car wreck 4 years ago. I was sitting at a stop light when a car behind me decided not to stop. He hit me doing about 55 mph. I was knocked across Hwy 41 over a 150 yards (my trunk now is in the back seat.) This wreck cost me my job. I could no longer sit at a computer 9 hours a day.
Since that time I have been to 2 chiropractors, a pain clinic, where they did 2 series of 3 epidural shots each and finally a surgeon. I refused surgery (only a 30% chance of improvement and 70% chance of it getting worse.) The shots nor the chiropractic worked very well. I had pretty much given up hope of ever being off pain killers and being without pain again. I couldn’t stand or sit more than 15-20 minutes in any one position and my left leg would suddenly go numb on me and would collapse. I took pain killers every 3-4 hours and slept very little. Emotionally I was sinking into a very black hole with no way out.
When I came to see Dr. Waterstone I could hardly stand up long enough to have x-rays done. But everyone was very patient and kind and we got through them. I started treatments that day and over the next two weeks had the other 9. After the first 2 treatements I had cut back on the pain medicine and was sleeping longer at night. By the time we finished I was on no pain killers and getting 5-6 hours of sleep at night.
