Before treating at Olympic Spine & Sports Therapy, I was having a lot of numbness and tingling in my feet and hands. They had a cold sensation and they felt like stumps when I tried to play golf and racquetball. My coordination and balance deteriorated to the point where I quit playing and just sat at home in my chair, depressed and discouraged. I started to lose sleep due to nerve spikes I would get in my feet, I felt like I was being stabbed with an ice pick! I saw a neurologist who said I had Peripheral Neuropathy due to my Diabetes and he prescribed me medication but it didn’t help me very much. I learned about Dr Shelley and Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy on line, and started treatment shortly after. It took about 6 weeks before I saw significant results but it worked! Now I’ve reached 75% overall improvement in my condition! I am walking and standing for longer periods of time, doing yard work without pain or fatigue, and I have even started playing golf and racquetball again. The staff is outstanding! They really take a personal interest in me, my treatment and my life. If your symptoms are anything like mine were, you need to get in here!
I had what I called “back attacks” twice a year that would send me to the hospital and they sent me home with pain killers. In 2012 I had a “back attack” that kept me out of work for one month. Finally I was diagnosed with spondylolisthesis, herniated discs and stenosis. It was four months before I could go back to an eight hour work day. I’ve tried other treatments including physical therapy. I did all the exercises that were prescribed yet I still was in pain. I also tried other chiropractors. Every day my back was on fire, I learned to cope with the pain which made me cranky and depressed. Because of the constant pressure from stenosis by the end of the day I was completely beat down by the pain. I recently got in a car accident that exacerbated my pain. I came to Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy and I started to feel relief after my very first decompression treatment. I don’t think about my pain all the time now. My posture has improved. I can do laundry all day and not be wiped out. Before I would do one load and then I was down for the rest of the day. I’m looking forward to riding my bike again this spring. I’m thinking about doing yard work, I thought that I was done with that before my treatment at Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy. I was out of town for a week and a half and I felt like I had not seen my family while I was away. I feel like everyone cares here. The doctors take the time to figure out where the issues are each day; they don’t just provide the same treatment for everyone. This place is amazing! It has absolutely changed my life! If I could convince just one person to come in and get relief it would be worth it!
