I Had Gone To Another Chiropractor Who Caused My Arm To Go Numb After His Treatment, So Coming To Another Made Me Apprehensive…But After The FIRST Visit The Feeling In My Arm Came Back!
I had neck pain, chronic lower back pain, and sciatica (numb right leg). For two weeks I suffered with the neck pain and 10 years with lower back pain. First I went to my regular doctor who prescribed me an anti-inflammatory. When the pills ran out I went to a different chiropractor to seek care, because there was still pain. He did not take any x-rays or or even do an exam but just decided to do the adjustment. After a few hours my right arm went numb. I had some worries that seeking another chiropractor would make it worse, but was experiencing so much pain that I decided to try again (my friend referred me, so that helped).
After the consultation I realized that other ailments I had been experiencing had a connection with my neck pain. After my first adjustment my feeling in my right arm had come back and after the second week my mobility had increased and pain had subsided. I decided to address my chronic lower back pain and it too has allowed me to participate in a more physical lifestyle (i.e. running) without pain. The massage therapists also showed me stretches to improve my mobility. No more numbness, no pinching, and I feel great. Thanks to the whole staff at Specific Family Chiropractic in having empathy with my situation and always being warm and proactive.
