I have suffered from sciatica and migraines for as long as 25 years. It’s just something I grew to live with. Two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer and went through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. I was in bad shape by the time the radiation was being done, so my husband convinced me to go along to a information session at the Chiropractors. After listening to the session, and talking to Dr. Paradis, I decided to give it a try.
I had one rule – don’t touch my lower back. Dr. Paradis took x-rays and said he believed that my sciatica could be caused by problems with my neck and we would start there. He was true to his word and never touched my lower back.
It’s been one year of treatments, and now I am at one treatment a week. I have been 6 months without a sciatica attack. My back will get sore if I overdo things, like stacking wood, gardening or vacuuming, but not the excruciating pain of sciatica. I don’t get as many migraines but if I get one, my first remedy is to see Dr. Paradis. I have really cut back on painkillers. Recently I had a fall on the driveway and bruised my ribs. The next day I went to see Dr. Paradis and he adjusted my spine while I was sitting up. He uses a gentle method, and I never experience any discomfort after being treated. Ayela and Julia are sweet as pie and always manage to fit me in whenever I need an extra treatment. Think about that…..no need to sit in a clinic and see a Doctor, or make an appointment days from now for a problem. I actually have less requirement for my Doctor now. Keeping my spine aligned helps my whole body.
Going to Hazeldean Family Chiropractic is the best thing I have ever done for myself.
