Acute Low Back Pain/Sciatic Nerve Pain
My name is Sam E. and I am a recent convert and a very strong believer in the value of Chiropractic care to one’s over all wellness and health care needs. I injured my lower back on July 24, 2011 at about 10 p.m. By the time I saw my physician on Monday, July 25, 2011 I was in such a pain that I could not walk, sit or stand. I could only lie down on the right side of by body and even then I was in a sea of pain. My doctor prescribed muscle relaxers, anti inflammatory medication and pain killers for me but nothing worked to reduce the pain that I was feeling. After a week of trying the medication and a trip to the emergency room, I went back to my doctor who referred me to “the best chiropractor he knows and had in the past and will in the future consult or send his family members if they were in a similar situation as mine”. My primary care physician made a call to Horning Chiropractic Center and made an appointment for me to see Dr. Horning by himself! My visit to Horning Chiropractic Center was the beginning of my rapid healing that totally shocked me, my family and my coworkers. My coworkers, a surprisingly great number of whom have suffered the same fate or have close family members that suffered from subluxation of the spine expressed great surprise at my rapid recovery despite the magnitude of my injury. My first visit to Horning Chiropractic Center was on August 3, 2011 and by this time I had stopped taking the muscle relaxer and the pain killer because they were not reliving my pain. At the Horning Chiropractic Center I was welcome by a supper friendly and highly professional staff that worked very hard to make me feel comfortable and provided me with materials and explanation on how chiropractic care could help my situation. Now it was time meet Dr. Horning. Dr. Horning took his time to explain to me what I was going through and why I was having such an excruciating pain. My case was so acute that he did not touch me that first day; I guess he wanted to study my x-ray first. My second visit was on August 5, 20011 and using Applied Kinesiology Dr. Horning began to work on my spine. After my third and fourth visit on August 8th and 10th respectively, I began to experience a tremendous relief from my Sciatica Nerve Pains. After my fifth visit that was my fourth time of receiving treatment from Dr. Horning, I started to live again. Today after only four weeks of treatment by Dr. Horning one would be hard press to dictate how much pain I was in or comprehend how much better I have gotten. My family and I thankful to Dr. Horning and his staff for the excellent care they provided to me at such a crucial time. If I may add, I have come to realize that my case is not unique to the practice but rather the cornerstone of Horning Chiropractic Center has always been to make their patient healthier. I will definitely recommend chiropractic care to my friends and associates and most definitely I will encourage them to visit Horning Chiropractic Center for consultation on whatever issue they may have.
