Patient Success Story: Stress

“No matter how stressed out I am when I come in, I leave feeling a little bit better.”
“I used to think it was normal to have some low back pain. My back would bother me frequently, especially while sitting for long periods in a car or at my desk writing papers. I met the Chiro One team at the mall and now I’ve changed my perspective. They did a posture check and saw that my posture was off so I decided I should go to the office to get a spinal exam.
I had never really thought about how the spine affects the body. I didn’t know the science behind chiropractic. When I came back to see my results, the doctor showed me my X-rays with a line where my spine should be; my spine was crooked. Anyone can tell the spine isn’t supposed to do that. It’s not rocket science! I decided it was worth getting it worked on so I could get it fixed.
After starting care, I noticed I had increased range of motion in my neck and my low back pain was gone. After my adjustment and therapies, I always leave the office more physically relaxed. I can go through the rest of my day more stress free. Even if I have mental stress, it’s easier to get through it when my body feels better.
This past winter I went home for a month during school break. By the end of break, my back pain started to come back. After being back under care for a short time, the pain is gone again. Although stretches and therapies have helped my posture, I still have the same habits I had before I started coming to the chiropractor. I know if I stopped getting adjustments and doing therapies my spine would get worse. I’m so glad I was in the early stages of degeneration so my spine can be repaired and maintained.
The staff at Chiro One Evanston is great. Everyone is friendly and relaxed. It’s a very supportive environment. No matter how stressed out I am when I come in, I leave feeling a little bit better. “
