My name is Pam Kaiser and I’m a nurse who works full time on the night shift as a supervisor at a large psychiatric hospital. Needless to say, I’m on my feet a lot, and at the end of my shift my right hip was so sore I could barely walk. Four years ago, while teaching my son to skate at a roller rink, I was plowed into from behind by a teen aged speed demon. I fell on my back and my left leg was thrown above my head and bounced off the floor. My left leg was stretched – tearing blood vessels and muscles – I was on crutches for a month. A trip to the ER ruled out dislocation or breaks in my bones. I was told that in time the muscles and blood vessels would heal.
Well, three years later my right hip is STILL killing me at the end of my shift. Multiple visits to Medical Doctors and orthopedic specialists along with CAT scans and MRI’s left me frustrated and defeated. I had always been very active, but not any more.
I had never been to a chiropractor simply because it had never occurred to me. On my first visit, Dr. Carrie told me that my left leg had remained somewhat stretched and my right leg was more than an inch shorter than my left leg – which explained why I had so much pain in my right hip.
After a few adjustments, I was pain free for the first time in four years. Now, with intermittent adjustments, I am able to do all the things I used to do!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Carrie! You worked a miracle in my life!
