My emotions get the best of me 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 through the rear view mirror as the car was getting closer. The car wasn't slowing down and I barely had time to react. The impact was explosive. I passed out. I awoke with the paramedics hovering over me. I started to panic, they calmed me down and told me there were no external injuries, and asked me if I felt any pain in my body. I let them know that my back was in alot of pain. They had me move my legs and wiggle my toes. I could move them, thank God.
I was taken to the emergency room and 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 fix some of the problems it was either that or pain medicine 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 terrible 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 a couple of months. I couldn't take it anymore. I figured surgery had to be easier than this. I signed up to get my first surgery, and the thought of my uncle kept playing in my head. I don't want to be like that.
I was frustrated to the point of tears one night after not being able to move without horrible pain shooting down my leg while I layed there. The thought of having to live like this for the rest of my life was overwhelming. A whole bottle of pain killers started to look like an option, I prayed for something else.
My friend called me that I hadn't talked to in years. I mustered up enough energy to talk. Daniel wanted to grab some dinner, I told him about my accident and that my back I was hurting too much. 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 fixed up in no time." His tone made me think he didn't not understand the severity of my condition. I tried to explain that this was beyond any 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. since They had failed me and I figured I"d try another method.
I went 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 pop 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 which 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 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 walk with a cane anymore, and pain killers are a thing of the past. Somebody up there heard me.
Don't Give up hope!
