Hip pain, Numbness in feet and hands
A few years ago, I started doing a lot of activities I had never done before such as running, biking, swimming, and golf. Prior to that I hadn’t really been an inactive person, but I also had never been athletic, so after a while I started having hip pain and then my feet and hands started going numb. Right about that time Dr. Roth came to the Bank to do his presentation. I had never considered going to a chiropractor before, but I couldn’t live with the numbness, and I’m not one for taking pain relievers, so I needed to do something.
A lot of what he said at that presentation sounded familiar. I had a lot of the symptoms he talked about, so I decided to do the evaluation to see what it was all about. He took a great deal of time to explain what he could see in the x-rays, let me know how he could help and answered questions I had (I ask a lot of questions… occupational hazard)
He then gave me a detailed explanation of how the process would work so that I had all the information I needed to decide if I wanted to go forward with the sessions.
During the initial three days a week/three-month session, not only did he do the adjustments needed, but he also gave me stretches and other things I needed to do at home to further my progress. For me, I really liked having something I could do for myself not only during that process, but I still use some of these stretches on a regular basis to keep some of the aches and pains at bay. The numbness and hip pain went away.
Because I still do all these activities and others on a regular basis, aches and pains are basically a daily occurrence, and when I go for an adjustment every few weeks now, he really listens when I tell him about issues I’m having and, when needed, he takes the time to
explain what is causing the issue and what I need to do at home to further help it improve.
I feel that he has not only helped with the issues I originally had but has also given me some tools I can use on a regular basis when aches and pains return.
