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 have suffered from degenerative arthritis in my lumbar spine for nearly twenty years, plus I have scoliosis and a herniated disc. Four years ago I met with a neuro surgeon who advised that I have surgery. The surgery was scheduled, however after further investigation I decided against it and resigned myself to live with the pain. Then a year ago the clenching pain became so intense it radiated from my hip down my leg to my toes. I found it difficult to work, sit, sleep or drive. One of my friends recommended Dr. Shelley; she told me her husband had tremendous success at Olympic Spine & Sports Therapy. My progress was slow at first, but now I’m hugely improved! Now that I’m no longer focused on my pain my quality of life has improved greatly. I can do housework. Since I’ m not tired out from pain I actually want to go out with friends. I’m back to walking, I was even able to complete a five mile hike last summer! I can sit without squirming in my chair which allows me to focus more on my clients. I also learned how to work smarter using better body mechanics. The staff is wonderful! They’re upbeat, cheerful, fun and very supportive. A couple of times I was in so much pain I came to the office in tears, they were encouraging, understanding and very caring.
