I get upset 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. He was driving full speed and hit me from behind while I was sitting at a red light. I remember looking through 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 explosive. I blacked out. I woke up with the EMS hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no obvious 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 a hairline fracture 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 had me thinking about 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 man and I was only 34! It went on like this for two months. I couldn't stand it any longer. I figured surgery had to be easier 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 upset 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 for the rest of my life 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 say hello. Daniel wanted to get some dinner, I told him about my accident and that my back I was hurting too much. 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 explain that this was past any help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't hear it. 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. Now They had failed me and I figured I"d try another method.
I walked into Shelly's office and Daniel showed up for moral support. Shelly took a few X-Rays and did some diagnostics 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 all through my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she finished I got up with a grin on my face. I could tell something was different...Better. I had a long 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 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 like before in a few weeks. I was so happy 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!
