I suffered from chronic neuropathic pain after I had a serious car accident which resulted in two spinal fusion surgeries. I had tried chiropractic, physical therapy, massage therapy and pain management but never achieved lasting pain relief. I was on numerous pain medications and sleep aides over the last several years and my day to day existence was completely ruled by my “disability.”
My son James had met Dr. Christa D’Amato at a business meeting and when he heard the type of treatment that was done here so I thought I might get some help there. All of this began as I said after the accident and at that time I had two pre-teen sons, was married living in a 2500 sq/ft home working full-time as a legal secretary/real estate paralegal and part-time as a Ballet instructor. Because of those injuries and the surgeries I was unable to work, teach ballet or care for my home. My life as I knew it ended. Over the last 14 years I have sought treatment and tried to work again but the pain always kept me from succeeding in getting off disability and back to “normal.”
Since I began treating here I have gotten off all the prescription pain medicines and am now successfully in my own business as a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant. I am also dancing again with my church’s dance ministry that I co-lead.
I am amazed at how well the Atlas Orthogonal way of adjusting the spine has relieved my pain without the rough cracking of the old way of chiropractic. I am so grateful for the care I received here. The staff is great working with my complicated schedule and most of all, I feel so much better! Thanks so much!
