My journey to better health and wellness began this past May 2016. At that time, I had developed severe pain in my left buttocks. Although standing was painless, sitting was extremely painful. The pain became very distracting, particularly while driving. At that point I knew I had to get help. Everyone diagnosed a sciatic nerve problem and recommended seeing a chiropractor. Fortunately, one of my surgical assistants had been treated in the past by Dr. Gary Weinstein and highly recommended him.
My first visit to Weinstein Chiropractic Center was miraculous! The various state of the art diagnostic scans and x-rays were impressive. As Dr. Gary reviewed the results at my initial consult, I realized that 30 years of being an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, as well as some trips and falls along the way, had taken its toll. Standing with bad posture while performing surgery all day long resulted in significant abnormal curvatures in my spinal column with the end result culminating in severe pain in my buttocks. But there was hope, which became apparent after my first treatment session.
Although the preliminary plan was to treat my spinal column degenerative damage, treatment was also directed to my right wrist, right knee, and both feet. In particular, I have to commend Dr. Kristal for her keen diagnostic awareness of my foot problems. After my first series of adjustments, not only was my backside feeling better; my knee was feeling better; my feet were feeling fantastic; for the first time in years, I had NO pain in my right wrist!
Prior to visiting Weinstein Chiropractic Center, I felt certain that I was going to need surgery on my right wrist to be able to continue performing oral surgery. I knew relief from using Advil daily was not going to last forever. I have now gone from taking 800mg of Advil twice a day to being completely Advil free for two months! Being pain free, avoiding surgery, and being medication free for not only my wrist, but also my knee is miraculous! With the maintenance chiropractic care program I’m in now, I feel that my surgical career can continue for as long as I want to practice; I won’t be forced to retire due to debilitating degenerative conditions.
From my recent chiropractic experience, I feel everyone should at least have a consultation to learn the potential benefits of chiropractic care. At this point, I am sure that my chiropractic wellness program will keep me active and healthy. I am committed to chiropractic care for life.
Needless but important to say, every member of the Weinstein Chiropractic Center is friendly, helpful, professional, and committed to making you feel comfortable. All three doctors (Gary, Curtis, and Kristal) are excellent and provide optimal care. Rest assured, if they can’t fix your problem, they will refer you to the appropriate health care facility.
I know there are no guarantees in life; however, I would be very surprised if chiropractic care didn’t help in some fashion to better everyone’s health. Every organ, tissue, and cell in the body is supplied by or affected by nerves. If the weight of a quarter can cause a nerve in a rat to malfunction, it only stands to reason that the pressure of an abnormal curvature or dislocated spinal column on the spinal cord or nerves existing the spinal column can have many and vast negative effects on the tissues and organs they supply resulting in some sort of bad health issue. So whatever the end problem, why not try to fix it at the beginning. If the roof is collapsing, it only makes sense to check the foundation and fix it. The chiropractic team is committed to fixing the foundation before the roof collapses, and in my case raising the roof while correcting the foundation. I only regret not seeking chiropractic care before my foundation deteriorated.
Thanks Gary, Curtis, Kristal, and the entire Weinstein staff for accepting the challenge of fixing my problems. It will definitely require a team effort and lifelong commitment for better health and wellness. Thank you Kelsie for referring me!
