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 came full speed and rear ended me while I was sitting at a red light. I remember looking in the rear view mirror as the car was getting closer. The car wasn't slowing down and I barely had time to react. The impact was terrifying. I blacked out. I awoke 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 had any pain in my body. I let them know that my back was in alot of pain. They had me move my legs and move my toes. I could move them, 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 issues it was either that or pills 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 terrible 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 a couple of months. I couldn't take it any longer. I thought sugery would 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 horrible pains 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 anything else.
A friend of mine called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to say hello. He 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 glimps of hope I had heard in a while. He said, You're in luck Ray, My wife is a chiropractor. "She'll get you fixed up in no time." His tone made me think he didn't not understand the severity of my condition. I tried to tell him that this was beyond any help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't hear it. He set me up to meet 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 a different 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 pop in my back and it was like a miracle, a pressure that I had in my back released. I felt it throughout my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she was done I sat up with a grin on my face. I could feel something was different...Better. I had a long 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 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 walk with a cane anymore, and medication is a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
