Recurring Back Pain

Case Study

This patient sought chiropractic treatment
immediately after her car accident, but didn’t keep up with the maintenance exercises because life just got too busy. As a result, the pain returned worse than it was before.

Treatment

Active Runner Needed to Get Back on Track

Before returning for chiropractic care, running was becoming more painful. I was able to run every day, but not outside, I had to run only on a treadmill.

During my daily routine, I took every opportunity to stretch just to keep the pain away. I would stretch before and after running. In my kitchen, the countertop is the right height of where my back pain is, so I lean against the counter to find relief. I’ll stand there checking email, actually any chance I could get I would stretch there. I didn’t stop exercising because I know it is important to keep moving, but my pain just got too severe.

I knew from past experience that seeing a chiropractor helped take the pain away and helped me to feel better. I had been ignoring myself for too long. I think as a parent sometimes self-care is hard to prioritize, which was my
reason for stopping treatment all those years ago. Life just gets in the way – but you can’t have a good life if you are constantly in pain.

Currently, I am seeing Dr. Toulios about once a week. I am also doing the daily exercises he’s given me between my visits. I started out with a very stiff back, but the stretching and the treatments have made a big difference in how I feel and have reduced my pain.

My first impression of Greenwood was very positive, I’d describe their atmosphere as welcoming and therapeutic.

Results

It has been such a positive experience to feel better

I feel really good. In between treatments I do stretches in the morning and in the afternoon. I understand now how much I really have a part to play in my recovery. Now knowing what to do and how to help myself heal I am in such a good physical position, and mentally I am much more positive as I am pain free.

IMMEDIATE RELIEF
Just from the few stretches I’ve been taught, I am able to prevent myself from being in excruciating pain.
