Neck and Low Back Pain – Jeanette Jackson

JeanetteJackson.jpgI started coming into “Alternacare Physical Medicine and Rehab" because I had both low back pain and neck pain.
I had suffered with these pains for years. My neck had been bothering me for 4 years. It was very painful and stiff. It would cause pain to move down into my shoulders, arms, and hands. I also would have numbness and tingling down through my arms and hands. The pain would hurt constantly. My back had been bothering me for 19 years before I started coming into "Alternacare Physical Medicine and Rehab". I had spondylolisthesis which caused pain to my low back, down into my legs, and my feet. I was unable to sleep at night. I would wake up anywhere from 4 to 12 times a night.
I had an epidural in my back for the pain, but it only supplied temporary relief. I was given several different kinds of muscle relaxers, and none of them helped. I was having to take 800 mg. of ibuprofen every 6 hours, and that would only take the edge off the pain. It would never make the pain go completely away.
Within my first week of care at “Altemacare Physical Medicine and Rehab", the numbness and tingling in my hands were gone. My neck and back pain was almost immediately better. I was in less pain after my first week of care than I had been in for years. I was able to sleep the whole night through. I was able to sleep on my back, which I had not been able to do for years. I am able to now do activities that I had been missing out on for years because of the pain. I love how everything you need to get well is right here at the clinic.
I think it is great that there is chiropractic care, massage therapy, and physical therapy here. I love how everyone works together to get the job done and fix the problems.
