Due to severe Lower Lumbar Back pain, I visited a well respected Spine Surgeon. I was, not advised, but, TOLD to NOT have any Physical Therapy, Do NOT do any exercises & Do NOT visit any Chiropractor. I was to be scheduled immediately for MAJOR Surgery to eliminate disc & tissue, then to fuse 4 or 5 of my vertebrae. During this time I would not be able to drive & would require, most likely, in home nursing assistance & care, for as along as a year or more.Out of fear, of the spine doctors "threats" I consulted several people who have had varying degrees of the same surgery. I decided to ask for Physical Therapy & was granted by my Rheumatologist. In only a few weeks the PT decided he could no longer help me. I consulted my Rheumatologist again, asking his "take" on me going to a Chiropractor. He would only agree if I could find a chiropractor who was Neurologically Board Certified.With all the above info I started searching & found Indiana Chiropractic. The introduced me to the" PRO ADJUSTER" system. In a relatively short period of time I was feeling considerable relief. Over a longer amount of time I no longer use my "TENS" Unit to relieve night time pain. I can now do light chores around the home & can sleep much more comfortably.
On May 17, 2007 I started to see the doctors at Indiana Chiropractic for Chiropractic care. I was involved in a serious accident and I hurt my neck and lower back. I was taking approximately 10-15 different medications including narcotics. The doctor started me on the Pro-Adjuster. By June 29, 2007 I was totally off all medications except for natural supplements I get at the doctors office. I was ready to go back to work. I felt great. I have no pain. I move so much better now. I thank Dr Shcwartz and Dr Sharbaugh, and all the staff for their kindness, concern, and help at my time in need. I would refer anyone I know to go there for their great care, compassion, and the Pro-Adjuster.
I am a 23 year old asthmatic. I started chiropractic treatment with the Pro-Adjuster at Indiana Chiropractic on June 26, 2006. I started taking one nutritional supplement recommended by the doctors at Indiana Chiropractic in addition to chiropractic care for three weeks and haven’t had an asthma attack since. Thanks to all the staff at Indiana Chiropractic Center.
In November 2009 I fell onto my back in the middle of our horrendous snow fall. At first I thought I had bruising on my tail bone, but after a few weeks I realized how serious my injury was. My first visit to the doctors resulted in multiple prescriptions for pain relievers, sleep aids and muscle relaxers. They were only masking my issues and they were not a permanent solution. When the medicine started to effect my everyday function of working and sleep was still not successful I knew I needed a different treatment.
In January I began physical therapy 3 times a week. I was hopeful in this would be my solution. After a few weeks of that my Physical Therapist suggested I get a temporary cane and a permanent shoe lift, and of course order orthopedic shoes; at 23 years old I was mortified!
By the time May came around I was physically and mentally exhausted, out of ideas and felt very hopeless. I truly believed that I would walk with a hunch and suffer severe pain for the rest of my life. No one seemed to know what was wrong with me or how to stop the pain.
My mother persuaded me to try chiropractors and although I felt this problem was beyond what I thought would be a simple back adjustment, I was out of ideas and went along with it. I started seeing Dr. Sharbaugh 3 times a week. We discussed exercises, diet and progress. The staff at Indiana Chiropractic has been very patient and helpful, not once did I feel I had a rushed, impersonal visit. Within 2 weeks I was sleeping 5 solid hours; it was the first glimmer of hope in 6 months. It’s now been 9 months since my fall and I still continue to see Dr. Sharbaugh once a week. My progress has only gotten better. Although I’m cautious, I’m happy to say I’m physically active again and life as a normal 24 year old is back on track. The cane, the drugs and shoe lift are long gone!
Chiropractors find a solution to fix the problem; they do not hide the issues behind little orange bottles of pills. Every morning when I put on my shoes without wrenching in pain I think about how grateful I am for Dr. Sharbaugh and staff for their pursuit in my cure. Chiropractors are miracle workers.
