Within my first week of seeing Dr. Young, I was able to walk without limping
Many many many times, it was suggested I see a chiropractor, but I was skeptical for a few reasons. First, I’ve never been to a chiropractor and because I thought I had a pretty good understanding of my body, I questioned how a chiropractor could help me? Secondly, I know it’s bad, but I’m a girl who can crack her own bones, so I figured I would probably undo any progress a chiropractor would make. Lastly, every time I tried to find a Groupon or Living Social deal, the Yelp reviews were horrific, so again, I just resolved to a life of pain thinking I could manage it since I had a “high tolerance”!
In April (2015), I signed up to help support one of my friends in the 50 mile MS Challenge Walk (September 2015). I started a walking program and by July I was up to walking about 20 miles per week. I was impressed with the intensity of my walking program, but felt my fitness could be challenged more, so I began to incorporate an interval running program. A week later, I had a “flare” and basically couldn’t walk without limping and had difficulty sitting and bending, which would wake me up at night. My family made fun of me telling me I looked broken and my younger sisters asked me, “is THIS what I have to look forward to when I’m your age?” Again, I heard “you should go to a chiropractor”, but this time my cousin was able to address my concerns by suggesting “go to a NUCCA chiropractor.” After a lengthy discussion about what NUCCA is, how it helped her, why it would benefit me, and researching for NUCCA chiropractors in San Diego, I called Intouch Chiropractic and talked to Joselyn who truly did ‘make my day’!
Within my first week of seeing Dr. Young, I was able to walk without limping! Within the first month, I had a significant reduction of pain in my hips and even experienced a few full nights of sleep without waking up in pain. After attending the new patient orientation, I was able to make further adjustments in my day-to-day life and had more body awareness. It’s been over three months and I have almost zero pain in my hips, a better understanding of my body, I sleep through the night, and now know I DON’T have to “deal” with the pain! Thank you Joselyn for making every office visit one I look forward to and a BIG thank you to Dr. Young for having the patience to go through the peeks and valley’s of my progress and give me the hope I now have that I CAN lead a pain free and healthy life!!”[space height=”HEIGHT”]
