Leg, Knee and Foot Pain: Relief without Meds or Surgery
May 1, 2019
By Chiro One Wellness Centers
Anyone with leg or foot pain knows the toll it can take on daily life. Without the ability to get around painlessly, everyday tasks can be impossible and things you used to love become a struggle. If you’re suffering from constant pain in your lower extremities, just know that you’re not alone. Check out these patient stories about leg and foot pain and relief—found without medication or surgery.
40 Years of Pain Comes to an End
“I’ve had lower back pain and shooting pain down my right leg for over 40 years. I’ve also had neck pain and headaches almost as long. I tried a lot of different treatments; anti-inflammatory, both over-the-counter and prescriptions; I tried spinal injections, physical therapy and a total knee replacement of my right knee. I had even tried chiropractic care, and I knew that chiropractic was one of the best options I had available to me, but I needed to find a new doctor.
That’s how I first came to Chiro One, and it’s been the most helpful of all the chiropractors I’ve been to. The pain in my back and legs has been reduced greatly so that I don’t need pain medication every day. In the year and a half that I’ve been coming here, I’ve only had a few migraines—maybe three or four—compared to at least once a month. I can now squat to pick things up off the floor, which I couldn’t do when I first came here. I don’t have problems going up and down stairs and I can walk much further than I could before! Every day gets better!”

The Difference Between Masking and Healing
“In 2010, my feet began bothering me. I went to the foot doctor and got a cortisone shot (OUCH!) which worked for a while… it didn’t “heal” my spine nor my flat feet. I tried medications, changed shoes, Epsom salt baths, but nothing worked. When I first heard of Chiro One, I was at a summer fair. One of Chiro One’s reps was doing a promotion—$20 for an X-ray! I took her up on her offer, and I’ve been here ever since.
I never gave chiropractic much thought, but I thought it was something to do with back massages, but WOW, it has changed my life tremendously. I have to say, I didn’t know my body was so out of sync. Now, I’m well-informed, and I know it’s more than just back massages—it has to do with your overall health, mind, body and spirit!”
