Chiropractic helps Sharon Hodges overcome back pain and pms « The Wellness Secret
Meet Sharon Hodges
“Chiropractic is helping me a lot with my back pain. It has also helped me with my PMS. I used to take 800 mg of Ibuprofen every 3 hours for two days before my period just to function. Now I don’t need ibuprofen at all and I’m pain-free.”
My name is Sharon Hodges. I was afraid that I was falling apart when I came to Chiro One. I had been in a lot of back pain for 25 years or better and was told by my MD years ago that I had damaged by back and would need future surgery. I was a postal worker and hurt my back from years of carrying too much weight but didn’t want to get surgery.
At its worst, I was in a lot of pain and couldn’t always get out of bed in the morning without assistance. I’d literally have to roll on my side to get out of bed or get help. I had never seen a chiropractor before and wanted to give it a try. My insurance didn’t cover it, but I tried it any way. I had tried physical therapy in the past and although I think it helped a little, it didn’t make a big difference. I used to store Ibuprofen in my purse, my car and on all three floors of my house so that I could find it right away if I was in pain.
Now that I’ve been under care at Chiro One of Flossmoor, I no longer need the Ibuprofen. Inside the first month, the back pain stopped and I could sleep on my back for the first time.
I used to have really bad back pain ten days before my period and had to take 800 mg of Ibuprofen every three hours just to function two days before, but now I don’t have any pain at all. I actually got my period last month and didn’t even know that it was due. I had no pain, no bloating and no cramps. I couldn’t wait to tell Dr. Matt!
I feel down the stairs this past February and didn’t even think of going to an ER. I was coming to see Dr. Jeremy the next day and he was very helpful and took x-rays of my foot. I’ve been under care since October of 2009 and I’ve felt great ever since. After experiencing pain for 30 years, I’m really happy to have found Chiro One.
I’m down to one visit per week, and I miss being here. I feel like they really care about me and they ask me to let them know how it’s going. I love coming to this place!
