Donna M. C.
Multiple Sclerosis
In 1984 I had a lower back injury while in the service. The military did a procedure that is no longer approved by the AMA. (It doesn’t work & caused too many serious complications).I was diagnosed Multiple Sclerosis in 1988. I still was active, athletic, had a horse, and became a dog trainer/obedience instructor. I hiked/walked miles throughout forests in New England. In 2000 my arches literally popped and I stand on the inside of my ankles. Doctors put me in afo’s on both legs. I began using a cane. Consequently, since I couldn’t feel the ground, I had many falls.
Testimonial

One of the worse was falling backwards down a flight of stairs. I don’t wear the afo’s anymore. I had surgery to rebuild my left foot, but not my right. Use crutches, wheelchair, & walker now. In 2003 a doctor found I have Borrellia burgderfi (Lyme Disease), Bartonella, & Babesios…all diseases transmitted by black legged ticks. No matter what the causes to my problems are, chiropractic care had been a way to cope & tolerate the pain in my back, and legs. I’ve seen different chiropractors throughout without sustainable improvements. I lived on muscle relaxants, even had prescription for Vicoden 3X a day, Neurotin, etc. Pain in my feet along with the back was my constant companion. Since seeing Dr. Justin Roth, learning about Upper Cervical Care Chiropractic Treatment, I understand why I didn’t get lasting relief from any treatments…my “master cylinder” was torqued. Looking back over my lifetime I could now understand how I could have damaged the atlas/axis connection. I was adventurously clumsy. I’ve had concussions, falls, twists plus the neuro-muscular diseases (MS, Lyme & Bartonella). I even had trauma at birth...the umbilical cord was wrapped twice around my neck, I was a month premature. At the first adjustment from Dr. Roth, I was nervous…it was so different to kneel instead of lying on a table. As he adjusted me I felt a sensation of water or air rushing through my body. It was wonderful, light freeing sensation. I was surprised how the pain in my feet dissipated. As per his rules, I hadn’t taken any pain nor muscle relaxants for a few days prior to that appointment. My feet didn’t hurt and that night I stood in the shower for the first time in 6 years. Wow!!! Since being under Dr. Roth’s care, I have only taking Vicoden twice in 7 months. I just don’t have enough pain to justify taking it. I have taken muscle relaxants, but not as habitual as prior to upper cervical care. I found it odd that unlike the chiropractic treatments I was accustom to, Dr. Roth does not adjust you each visit. He scans your neck & only if that shows an adjustment is necessary, then he adjusts. I’ve seen him 50 times and only needed 17 adjustments. So far my scans are clear & the last adjustment is holding. Dr. Justin Roth is my hero. He has been instrumental in guiding my healing, referring other professionals that can compliment my care. Dr. Roth is a blessing to all of his patients. His enthusiasm for healing is contagious and kept me in a positive, forward moving mind frame, in my journey to health. Donna M. C. – Wethersfield, Connecticut, USA
