“Before starting care at CLC, I had been dealing with low back pain for TEN YEARS and my energy levels were very low all the time. I was relying on ibuprofen and coffee just to get through the day, which I know now was only just suppressing the symptoms of a bigger health issue.
Dealing with super low energy and fatigue, along with the back pain, was frustrating, especially since I am still so young! It was discouraging and easily made me impatient with our daughter.
I had been going to a chiropractor for a long time prior to coming here. Their approach was a lot different however; I would just go here and there, maybe once every month or so. When my wife and daughter started coming to CLC, I quickly realized your approach was much different; I began to think maybe only going once/month wasn’t enough to get to the underlying root of the issues I was continuing to have after years of care. My symptoms just were not getting any better.
After my family had been coming here for several months and we started noticing huge improvements both in my wife and daughter’s overall health and wellness, I decided I needed to start here as well.
At my first appointment, you showed me the neurological scans and I was fascinated. They were able to pinpoint the underlying stress in my body that I couldn’t necessarily see or feel going on from the outside. I am somebody who likes to analyze things and look at the underlying causes to figure out how we can address the root of the issue and move forward, and that’s exactly what you provide at CLC.
I had been going to a chiro for years, but my neurological scans still came back extremely stressed. It made me realize that if we don’t approach the system at the right frequency and in the right manner, so much stress is left unaddressed.
Once I started at CLC, after about 2 weeks of getting adjusted at 3x/week my back was no longer hurting anymore and overall I felt much more calm. Seeing already, at such an early stage in the healing process, my body was recovering and allowing that stress to go away, and therefore causing less pain in my lower back was amazing.
Prior to starting here, I was experiencing low back pain daily since 2012. I was worried about how I was going to be able to care for my daughter if it continued to get worse. It was constantly there, and it made me so impatient. After about 5 months of care at CLC, it’s rare that I experience it. Sometimes, if I have a little extra stress going on in my life, the old stress patterns will try to sneak back in, but after I get adjusted my body recuperates so much more quickly than it ever did in the past.
It’s made a big difference in my overall day to day. I feel more present. Before, it felt like I was in a fight or flight state all the time; my nervous system was STUCK in stress mode and I was always worried about something. Now, I am able to handle stress better in the moment, take a breath and think through things more rationally rather than being full of fear and anxiety. With my lower back not hurting as it used to, I’m able to be in the moment and not constantly be pulled out because something internally is distracting me from what I need to be thinking about. My energy levels have improved drastically as well, and I find coffee is not something that I NEED to make it to the end of the day. Chiropractic care is something my whole family utilizes to keep us healthy and feeling our best!”
