I get upset when I think about my car accident 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. she came 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 barely 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 obvious injuries, and asked me if I had any pain in my body. I told them that my back was in serious 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 surgery to correct some of the issues it was either that or pain killers while it healed.
The thought of surgery made me remember my uncle. He had a bad back and had undergone alot of 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 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 memory of my uncle kept playing in my head. I don't want to live like that.
I was frustrated 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 for the rest of my life was overwhelming. A whole bottle of pain killers was looking like an option, I prayed for something better.
My friend called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to say hello. Daniel wanted to get some dinner, I told him about my accident and that my back wouldn't allow it. He was disappointed. The next thing he told me was the first glimmer of hope I had heard in a while. He said, You're in luck Ray, My wife is a chiropractor. "She'll get you better 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 beyond the help of a chiropractor, but he wouldn't listen. He set me up an appointment with his wife Shelly the next day. I was intrigued, I never went to chiropractors cause I always relied on medical doctors. Now Medical Doctors had failed me and I figured I"d try a different method.
I walked into Shelly's office and Daniel showed up for moral support. Shelly took a few X-Rays and did some tests with me. She had me lay down, and started realigning my back. I felt a pop in my back and it was like a miracle, a weight on my back had. 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 huge list of questions for Shelly and she answered with a grace and patience like no other. She Actually took the 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 without my cane in a few weeks. I was so impressed 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 pills are a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
