I looked at it more as to rule out spinal alignment issues as a source of the heel pain I encountered daily. I did have a back injury 25 years ago, requiring lower laminectomy procedure. Prior to that surgery I had chiropractic treatments but the results were limited. After the first adjustment Dr. Roth did (atlas vertebrae) I experience some unexpected results. First, I used to get debilitating sinus headaches (migraine) when seasons changed. I no longer have such sinus pain when weather is changing. Secondly, I have more feeling in the entire left side of my body. This was the side most impacted by my back injury so long ago. Lastly, and probably the most impressive was that my hearing improved. I could actually hear better than ever before. It is almost as though the parts of my body started working in harmony. There is one other important aspect that I learned from my experience under the care of Dr. Roth. I attended an informational presentation that he gives. In it, there is valuable information of how Chiropractic Care is part of a collection of natural balanced healing discipline(s). If you follow the recommendations you will find ways to help your body heal itself. Lately, my adjustments have been lasting and I see Dr. Roth for wellness visits. And, I no longer have heel pain. -Keith B.
