Dr. DeClue's Chiropractic Story
"While I was in high school, I was playing baseball. One night, I swung as hard I could at a pitch. I knew instantly that my back was hurt. That night I spent 4 hours in the emergency room for them to tell me I had injured my back. I was pretty sure I already knew that. It felt like I was being stabbed with a hot knife in my back and upper leg over and over. A teammates mom worked for a chiropractor and recommended I should go. That next day I went to the chiropractor and 2 weeks later I was pain free and playing again. I liked the fact that when I went to the chiropractor that he did not just tell me I had pain, but why I was having pain."

Dr. Vasant's Chiropractic Story
"I never really had back pain until college around the age of 20. I was really active and liked to work out. Eventually I started to develop low back pain, which started to radiate down my right leg. It got so bad I had to take four 500mg Tylenol every day. I couldn’t work out anymore and started to gain weight. After I couldn’t take it anymore I saw a neurosurgeon who diagnosed me with a herniated disc. I got back surgery and I felt better for about a week and then the shooting pain came back again. Went back to the surgeon and he said the herniation came back and recommended another surgery. After the second surgery there was relief for about two days and then the pain came back. Went back to the surgeon and he prescribed steroids, which didn’t help. I was never prescribed rehab or taught how to take care of my back after the surgery. Not wanting another surgery I researched other options and eventually ended up at a chiropractor’s office. After treatments, exercises, and following his instructions on what to do and what not to do, I began to improve. Eventually I was pain free and off medication. I was able to work out again! This is my story and why I am a lifetime chiropractic patient."
