My emotions get the best of me when I think about the car accident I was 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. He was driving full speed and hit me from behind while I was sitting at a stop sign. 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 impact was terrifying. I passed out. I woke up with the paramedics 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 alot of pain. They had me move my legs and move my toes. I could wiggle them, thank God.
They took me to the emergency room they 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 surgery to correct some of the issues it was either that or medication while it healed.
The thought of surgery made me remember my uncle. He had back problems and had undergone alot of 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 any longer. I figured surgery had to 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 be like that.
I was upset to the point of tears one night after not being able to move without unbearable 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 say hello. Daniel wanted to grab some dinner, I let him know 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 while. 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 how bad my contidion was. I tried to tell him that this was past any 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. Now Medical Doctors 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 a few X-Rays and did some diagnostics with me. She had me lay down, and started realigning my back. I heard a crunch in my back and it was like a miracle, a weight on my back had. I felt it all through my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she was done 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 and 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 without my cane 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 walk with a cane anymore, and pain medicine is a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
