Today’s blog from Pike chiropractic is a testimonial dated July of 1998. I want to say that these words and the feelings expressed through them by a member of our practice are the highest praise possible for a care provider.
This report is a powerful example of how a person’s life can be dramatically changed by their willingness to “keep on open mind to the whole process and just pay attention to any changes that might occur“ as this person did. I invite you to consider how the community as a whole would be transformed by adopting this attitude to “improving overall health“. I will also inject the notion here that chiropractic care is first and foremost a wellness approach which also works to help those who have the desire to take control of their health and get their quality of life back in surprising ways. Read on to learn just how powerful a specific chiropractic adjustment to correct upper neck function can be after 41 years of life.
Testimonial July 1998
“I am a 41 year old man with no major health problems, other than obesity and a general lack of fitness.
I began seeing Dr Pike as an initial step to improving my overall health. Like most people I was somewhat skeptical about the larger claims from the chiropractic community. If I had a back-ache or neck problem I might have thought about seeing a chiropractor but I left any general health problems to my family physician. In any event, I had never visited a chiropractor before.
Two months ago I began seeing Dr. Pike two times a week. I decided to keep on open mind to the whole process and just pay attention to any changes that might occur as the weeks past.
After viewing the initial scan results and x-rays it was determined that my spine was in pretty good shape but I had one vertebra in my neck that had lost some mobility. Dr. Pike recommended we start eight weeks of sessions to re-align that part of my spine. He explained that the spine was the main channel allowing signals to pass up and down between the brain and the rest of the body. The blockage in my neck was likely not allowing my body to function at its best.
After my first adjustment I was somewhat overwhelmed by the affects it had on my entire body. And while I wouldn’t say the feeling was all that enjoyable I could tell that something was definitely happening.
Since then, each visit has resulted in something happening. I noticed I was sleeping more deeply, and with more vivid dreams. My hands and other extremities began tingling for several days and I began feeling more energy that I’ve felt in 25 years. (My wife jokes that there’s definitely no need for Viagra in our house.) I also noticed an improvement in my ability to focus on tasks at work.
While it is still early in the process I am very happy to have started seeing Dr. Pike. The increased energy levels have helped me to become more active and concentrate on stemming my over-eating I also like the idea of doing something to stay healthy rather than waiting until there is a much bigger problem and being forced to take drugs.
Since my wife would die if she saw any mention about our sex life being displayed in public I would ask that you not publish my name. I do hope, though, that others get to see this message. I’m sure they would find it worth considering. I should also mention that we are planning to have our children start seeing Dr. Pike, too.”
Further comments by Dr. Pike: When one of our practice members experiences that chiropractic adjustments can:
- Affect the whole body in overwhelming ways.
- Something definitely happened on ever visit.
- Result is much deeper sleep and move vivid dreams
- Cause you to feel more energy than twenty five years ago.
- Improve libido.
- Improve focus on tasks at work.\
- Increase energy to the point of becoming more active and able to stem over eating problems.
- Be a way to stay healthy rather than wait for a much bigger problem and being forced to take drugs.
- Help a family to be and stay healthy for life.
When this happens and it does happen every day in our adjusting room, does this mean that chiropractic is a way to treat all of the above? I hope you can appreciate that we are born to live in wellness and health naturally. When we forget to care for ourselves and ultimately succumb to stress; this testimonial is proof it is possible for this one man to decide to see beyond what he had always believed and learned from his teachers and preachers, peers and doctors. By keeping an open mind something will happen in any ones body that has been deprived of spinal health. Discover chiropractic for yourself this week. Thanks for visiting our blog.
