My emotions get the best of me 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 was driving full speed and hit me from behind while I was sitting at a stop sign. I remember looking in the rear view mirror as the car was approaching. The car wasn't slowing down and I hardly had time to react. The crash was terrifying. I blacked out. I woke up with the paramedics hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no external wounds, and asked me if I had any pain in my body. I told them that my back was in alot of pain. They had me move my legs and wiggle my toes. I could wiggle them, thank God.
They took me to the emergency room they took an x-ray of my back, I had a hairline fracture on my tailbone and some of my discs had shifted out of place. The doctor suggested a dangerous sergical procedure to correct some of the problems it was either that or pain killers while it healed.
The thought of surgery had me thinking about my uncle. He had back problems and had undergone many back surgeries. He lived from walker to wheelchair for many years. It was a scary thought. I had a cane to help me walk, I felt like an old person and I was only 34! It went on like this for two months. I couldn't stand it anymore. I figured surgery had to be easier than this. I signed up to get my first surgery, and the memory of my uncle kept playing in my head. I don't want to live like that.
I was upset to the point of tears one night after not being able to move without terrible pain shooting down my leg while I layed there. The thought of having to be like this anymore was overwhelming. A whole bottle of pain killers started to look 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. Daniel wanted to grab some dinner, I told him about my accident and that my back wouldn't allow it. 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 how bad my contidion was. I tried to tell him that this was past any help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't listen. 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. since They had failed me and I figured I"d try another method.
I walked into Shelly's office and Daniel showed up for moral support. Shelly took some X-Rays and did some tests with me. She had me lay down, and started realigning my back. I heard a crunch in my back and it was like a miracle, a weight on my back had. I felt it all through my body. I literally had goose bumps. When she finished I got up with a grin on my face. I could tell 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 just 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 use a cane anymore, and medication is a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
