A long day of cutting hair would create tension in my neck and shoulder area that wouldn’t quit. I was told without surgery; I would eventually not be able to work; not something you want to hear when you’re trying to raise 3 kids! The surgery itself is nasty business, six weeks or more recovery time and being self-employed that means no pay for me as well as no driving in that time frame. In my business, I come in contact with a lot of people who had a lot of opinions about fusion surgery and chiropractic treatment. I know there are good and bad chiropractors but I didn’t like the odds of surgery being that most fusion patients end up back for more surgery and I didn’t want that to be me so I stayed hopeful. I was finally recommended by my 81-year-old client Dorothy, whom I respect very much, raved about Dr. Roth saving her from shoulder surgery that I should schedule an appointment with Dr. Roth. Scared and skeptical, I went to his website (which was very educational) and had a glimmer of hope that this could possibly work.First of all, his office girls Katlynn and Chrissy have the most upbeat, sweetest dispositions and really make you feel welcome. Dr. Roth was very patient, took his time and answered all my questions. He is very confident and knowledgeable about his craft and truly believes in what he does. I found out how and why this happened and what could be done to fix it. The how and why was something my orthopedic just chalked up to age and heredity conditions. It’s now been 5 months since cancelling the surgery and opting for treatment with Dr. Roth. I forgot how feeling well was supposed to feel like. My movements are more fluent, my sleeping is back to normal and there is a host of other improvements I didn’t expect such as better concentration and the ability to keep up with my children and yes, they’re seeing Dr. Roth as well.
