Dr. Christina’s Headache Story
When most doctors say they understand … they don’t. They don’t understand what it is like to have a headache or migraine that keeps them from their work, school, friends or family.
Well… when I say I understand, I honestly mean it.
As a teenager I deveoped migraine headaches that simply debilitated my life. The pain was much worse and more intense than any pain I had ever experienced. It was unbearable pain. I couldn’t go to school, hang out with friends, or even eat. The pain would come every 2 weeks and last for 3 days. My life became a mix of days full of crying and pain, days I was so medicated I couldn’t do much, and then the days in between when I simply waited for the headache to return.
After countless tests, scans, muscle relaxers, and pain pills… I was still in continuous pain and then feeling like a zombie because of the medication. My mother convinced me to see a new doctor in town – a chiropractor. The doctor did an exam, took some xrays, and the “adjusted” my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt; it actually felt good. I got immediate releif and after a series of adjustments the headaches were gone. He gave me my life back. It worked so well for me, and I was so impressed with the other “miracles” I saw in his office, that I went to chiropractic school myself.
It’s strange how life is, because now people come to me with their headache and migraine problems.
If you are suffering with any kind of headache or migraine… come see me and let me help you.
