I get upset when I think about my car accident in 4 years ago. It changed my life. I was driving home from a night out with friends, when I was stuck by a drunk driver. she was driving full speed and hit me from behind while I was sitting at a red light. I remember looking back into the rear view mirror as the car was getting closer. The car didn't stop and I hardly had time to react. The crash was terrifying. I blacked out. I awoke with the EMS hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no obvious injuries, 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 move my toes. I wasn't Paralized, thank God.
They took me to the emergency room and took an x-ray of my back, I had a hairline fracture on my tailbone and some of my discs had shifted out of place. The doctor suggested a dangerous sergical procedure to correct some of the issues it was either that or pills 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 painful thought. I had a cane to help me walk, I felt like an old person and I was only 34! It went on like this for two months. I couldn't stand it anymore. I figured surgery had to be easier than this. I signed up to get my first surgery, and the memory of my uncle kept playing in my head. I don't want to be like that.
I was upset to the point of tears one night after not being able to move without horrible pains shooting down my leg while I layed there. The thought of having to be like this anymore was overwhelming. A whole bottle of pain killers started to look like an option, I prayed for anything better.
My friend called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to talk. Daniel wanted to get some dinner, I let him know that my back I was hurting too much. He was disappointed. The next thing 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 fixed up in no time." His tone made me think he didn't not understand how bad my contidion was. I tried to explain that this was beyond the help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't listen. He set me up an appointment 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 diagnostics with me. She had me lay down, and started realigning my back. I heard a pop in my back and it was like a miracle, a pressure that I had in my back released. I felt it all through my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she finished I sat up with a grin on my face. I could tell 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 some time to listen to all my concerns unlike Dr. Joe Schmo who 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 medicine is a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
