This article is an interview with an actual neck pain patient from St. George. John W.,age 73,had neck pain ever since a car accident in 1963. He had been to many different doctors where he found only temporary relief. “In those 40 years I have found the most relief after visiting Advanced Spine &Rehab,” he said.
How did you feel before coming into AS&R?
Ever since the accident I have had neck pain and stiffness. My range of motion had become very limited. The pain and muscle spasms would randomly come on after simple movements like turning my head. I would rate my pain at 7/10. It was very frustrating.
What kind of care had you previously received?
I had received previous chiropractic care,diathermy,acupressure,and decompression. They all seemed to help,but the relief was always temporary.
How was treatment at this clinic different?
I previously found that chiropractic care and decompression helped me the most. AS&R offered a similar treatment but integrated it with neck exercises on the Multi-Cervical Unit. I feel that really helped. Instead of the pain coming back,I felt the pain gradually decrease.
How do you feel now?
This has been the best total relief I have experienced in the last 40 years. I used to notice popping and crunching sounds in my neck when I moved around. I now don’t hear that at all. I feel my range of motion is back to normal for my age. I have very few spasms. I am able to check my blind spot while driving. Previously I had to depend on the rear view mirror exclusively.
How is this clinic different than others you’ve been to?
The clinic here is more advanced than I have seen with other providers. The doctors and staff are very caring. The experience was more fun than a usual doctor visit. You look forward to coming in for treatment. I also felt the doctors and staff had a better handle on my insurance benefits. I’m glad I made the decision to visit this clinic.
