“When I first visited Manny for an assessment in May 2015, I was shocked to see and learn how much my spine had deteriorated since my stroke in November 2003.
I have been told that when I walked I leant to the left because the stroke had weakened my left side. The x-rays confirmed that my spine was indeed curved to the left, my neck curved forward, and although several of my spinal vertebrae were misaligned and worn, the one at the base of my spine was crushed. This explains the constant pain I felt at the base of my back across my shoulders. It was necessary for me to halt the deterioration of my spinal vertebrae and straighten my spine and reverse the forward curvature of my neck.
Following a series of corrective adjustments of 2 days a week for six weeks with an interim assessment in July, scans showed that the deterioration in my spinal vertebrae had slowed down, I was not leaning to the left and my neck was not as rigid as before. The maintenance at home over the next eight weeks increased my flexibility and the x-ray in September showed me that the deterioration in my spinal vertebrae in the base of my spine has been halted.
As a consequence of the treatment I am now more conscious of my posture, recognising when I’m not holding myself upright. I have raised the level of my desktop computer screen so I no longer lean forward. I am also able to turn my neck to the left without shifting my whole body.
Had I not visited precision chiropractic spinal health and undergone the treatment, in time my spine would have been ruined as its misalignment would have continued, the vertebrae and the base of my spine would have been completely worn and my body would have been in pain. I may have required surgery to correct my spinal vertebrae. The reverse is now true. I’m pleased with the progress made and the knowledge I have gained. I would recommend precision chiropractic spinal health to anyone who experiences back pain. You need to know what is going on inside of you.”
