Stubborn Back Pain Or Stubborn Patient?

Here is another one of my favorite patient stories from the past year.

Patient testimonials are an excellent way to learn about the benefits of chiropractic care and what conditions it may help.

And this one is more for all the dads out there because we all know some men are stubborn and don’t like going to a doctor of any kind.

“I would like to thank Dr Brad for giving me my life back. You have given me pain-free days.

I had trouble going for walks. But now I can go on long walks with my family. I should have come to see him years ago. He has really helped me with my back problems.”

So how many “years ago” was it for this patient?

When his spouse started care with me, they had 2 young children. Now they have 3 grown kids and 4 grand-kids; all three generations of this family were under my care at one time or another.

So it took 25 years, constant coaxing from his spouse and a nasty episode of lower back pain before he decided to go to the chiropractor. And he really did dodge a bullet with his back because it was touch and go for a few weeks.

A couple of months ago he mentioned to me during his regular checkup that he had recently gone for a 40 minute bike ride.

Something he hadn’t been able to do for 20 years. So even though he is long through the crisis, he is still noticing improvement in his activities of daily living.

Prevention is always a far better approach, but sometimes it does hold true that it’s better late than never.
