Preventative Care While Pregnant
I came into the office due to having some lower back pain while at the beginning of my pregnancy. I had similar issues during my first pregnancy and thought this time I would make sure that did something before it got really bad. I also suffered from plantar fasciitis.
I would stretch and use heat to help out but I wanted to make sure the pregnancy went smoothly and the research on how chiropractic can help out pregnancy had me intrigued.
I had 100 percent improvement in movement and everything during the pregnancy was so much better than it was with my first. With chiropractic care, I was able to work out during my whole pregnancy. My labor and delivery was 100 percent natural and 7 hours from start until finish versus the 24 hours it was with my first.
Now I continue to receive care on a maintenance level and bring in both of my kids. My 3 year old loves coming in and my baby is all smiles when she sees Dr. Z.
I was officially diagnosed with AS in 2005, however symptoms began in 1999.
When the symptoms began I thought I had pulled a muscle or slipped a disk, I mean who ever heard of a 19 year old kid having arthritic back problems. I would wake up in the middle of the night with back cramps and spasms that would arch my lower back into the air. If I sneezed it felt like a grenade exploded between my shoulder blades. Often I felt like a softball sat under my left shoulder blade. If I stumped my toe or stumbled my entire back would radiate pain that would almost drive me to the ground. I found it impossible to lay flat on my back and highly difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep. Even driving over a speed bump more painful than can be described.
I actually began with chiropractic and we thought it was a slipped disc, that chiropractor looked at a second set of x-rays and told me my scoliosis was progressed to a point the he was almost sure that I had a tumor pressing on my spine, I then went to my primary care doctor who referred me to KOC where I finally had a name for my tormentor. KOC referred me to a Rhuematologist, they helped me get a handle on the pain and began me on some mild medications but constantly tried to push known chemo drugs on me. I refused them and went back to my primary care doctor who told me he would keep checking me and prescribing my current regimen. For the next 12 years I grew to accept life and what pain remained; however I noticed that I physically couldn’t lie flat down. Not due to pain but rather due to the forward curvature of my spine which had developed. I was very hunchbacked, it didn’t hurt but I feared what the final results would be if I let it run its course.
Since care here, the most glaring improvement is how much better I can breathe, I didn’t even notice it leave but now realize how bad it was. I am straighter and generally just feel better each day.
Dr. Parson has changed my life for the better. We are still on this road of health together but I have found people at Advanced Chiropractic are more than healthcare providers, they are friends that care about the people who place trust in them.
I’ve been going to Advanced Chiropractic for years now and I love it! I have mild scoliosis and a lot of neck pain and with regular adjustments and therapy, I’ve never felt better. I once had such a painful headache that had me in tears and came in to see if Dr. Parson could help me. He adjusted my neck and within 30 minutes my headache was gone! When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter I continued to keep my regular appointments. It helped ease a lot of the discomforts that comes with pregnancy. When I was full term I wanted to have my baby so bad! Dr.Parson would adjust me 2-3X a week during that time and my water broke on its own within a week! I delivered my daughter essentially natural and I do believe the adjustments helped ease the process of labor. Once my daughter was a week old, I came and had her adjusted also and it helped with her gas. I couldn’t recommend Advanced Chiropractic more, they are the best of the best.
When I came into the office my complaint was that I was having lower back pain. I was having lower back pain for a few months and decided to give chiropractic a try. Chiropractic care has really helped out my lower back pain but there is more to the story.
I have been suffering from severe menstrual cramps for 9-10 years. I had gone to multiple doctors and they had tried me on everything from 2 different types of birth control to various pain medicines. Nothing seemed to help with my severe cramps.
Up until about 2 months ago the cramps had been really severe. Then I started thinking about it and over the past 2 months I haven’t had any cramping with my menstrual cycle. I thought that was kind of strange since it had been present for over 9 years, so I did some research. I looked up if chiropractic care could actually help with menstrual cramps, and sure enough it does.
I wish the multiple doctors I have seen would have recommended giving chiropractic a try. I wouldn’t have had to go through a trial and error with birth control and would have been rid of this pain a long time ago.
It wasn’t what I initially came in for but it was a HUGE plus to go to my care.
Back Pain and Menstrual Cramps
When I first came in it was for lower back pain which was worsening for about 4 to 5 weeks. I was about 17 at the time and my mom brought me in.
I had tried pain medicine but that wasn’t really working.
When we talked, I learned that the painful menstrual cramps could be associated with my lower back pain. These cramps were bad and had been going on for about 6 years. It made sense when he showed me why.
Since I have been under care, the cramps and the pain with them, have decreased tremendously!
Not to mention my back pain rarely bothers me anymore.
I spilled hot bacon grease on my entire leg in July of 2013! The burns 2nd degree and bad. They treated me with ointments, wraps and aquacell.
However, my mother brought the low level laser home from Advanced Chiropractic, because the research was showing great results in helping to heal burns.
The leg did great, minimal scarring, the pigment returned to normal and no debridement was necessary. The itching decreased from scabbing and the whole healing process was accelerated.
The treating doctors were impressed! Got pictures if you need to see!
Bursitis in Both Hips
Originally I came in way back in 2004 for lower back and leg pain from falling off a horse. We worked on that on got in resolved.
Then about 5 years ago I developed bursitis in both my hips. It hurt to walk, stand and sit. The pain woke me up at night. This became a real problem with my work.
I tried cortisone injections, NSAIDS, Lidocaine patches, physical therapy, pain meds, etc. to no avail. They helped some.
Chiropractic care finally got me to where I am today. Essentially, major reduction in pain, often no pain at all.
Not to mention I developed problems with my hamstrings, Chiropractic care was first on the list this time and that problem was resolved.
Now, I am able to garden, walk, sit and sleep comfortably. I got my life back!
Migraines and Colon Problems
I have suffered with migraines for 2 years and getting worse; also weight gain (rapid), constantly tired and colon and stomach issues over the last 10 years. I am only 25 years old.
We have tried everything from cutting my hair, I have stayed in bed long periods of time and lost work as a teacher, and countless medical doctors and countless medications that never worked.
Since treatment I have almost completely stopped having migraines now, expect for maybe one per month (probably hormonal). Colon and stomach issues have improve greatly and I have much more energy.
I have lost over 50 lbs now that I feel so much better. I have more energy and a new quality of life. I am very happy I came here and would recommend to anyone. I had almost lost hope.
Thank you so much.
Neck Pain and Fever
I have always had problems with a pinch nerve in my neck since I was about 6 years old. I had double Pneumonia when I was 6 years old and I was in and out of the hospital for my first year in school. The last time I was in the hospital and the pediatricians had tried several different kinds of antibiotics on me, which none was working at 100%.
The pediatricians had told my parents that there was a new antibiotic that had just came out and the pediatricians said if this antibiotic doesn’t clear up the infection and break up the fever; then there is nothing else we can do for her.
At this time, my father was taking it into his own hands to keep from losing a daughter. He had a great friend that was a chiropractor (Dr. Mabry) that was in the army with him. When my father had spoken to Dr. Mabry, he said I think why her fever won’t break is that she has a pinch in her cervical area.
Dr. Mabry came to visit me in the hospital and he turned me over on my stomach on that hospital bed in Children’s Hospital, and he adjusted my cervical spine and immediately the fever broke. When the pediatricians made their rounds on Monday, they couldn’t believe that my chart had said my fever had broken the night before.
My parents were so grateful for Dr. Mabry, that he saved my life. I thank Dr. Parson for everything he has done for me. I have had several different issues from my pinch nerves to my knee pain. He has made my everyday living so much better.
This is why my chiropractic care is so important to me.
Thank you, Dr. Parson for everything you have done for me!
Neck, Lower Back, Hands, Ringing in Ears
If you never tried Chiropractic Care, you are about to experience something you will wonder why you did not do this health care sooner.
I was involved in a bad automobile accident. I first saw a neurosurgeon whom recommended neck surgery. Next I saw an orthopedic surgeon whom recommended back surgery. Next I saw a Physical Therapy doctors for months. After months of physical therapy medical care, I was not getting any better.
I then went to see my attorney handling my case, and he recommended a chiropractor who helped him 2 years earlier.
So, I went to see and talk with the chiropractor about my health situations. He did x-rays after which we reviewed them, and he said he thought he would be able to get me back in good shape.
He had me do chiropractic therapy and adjustments for 2 weeks, coming 5 days a week. After the first session, the ringing in my ear since the day of the automobile accident 9 months earlier had stopped.
Progress continued, and I began to function normally with having had no surgery at all.
It has now been 24 years and 7 months, and I still continue chiropractic care, doing therapy and adjustments every eight weeks to maintain my good, solid mobility, and feeling like a new man each time I walk back out the front door after my treatments.
Chiropractic Care worked great for me, and I believe it will work for you as well.
So enjoy your new found great health solution!
Sincere best wishes, and you came to the right place for great health care!
Blurry Vision, Weakness in Arms
About a year and a half ago I started having problems with my eyes and weakness in my arms. It was like waves were coming in front of my eyes and I was having trouble picking up things. It was like my arms were numb like when they fall asleep. I had also fallen down about a year ago and landed on my tailbone which caused some weakness in my legs that would come and go.
I started to take medicine that I thought would help with my pain. After doing it for a while, my eyes were not getting better and my weakness was still present.
After looking at my x-rays at the office, I could see that the top bone in my neck was up against my skull which is where it is not supposed to be.
After getting some adjustments, my eyes are not blurry as much and when they are it is not as bad. My weakness has gone away and the numbness in my arm is gone too. I have also been able to stop taking my medicine.
