“My life is filled with constant planning, preparation and time management as an elementary school teacher. Also, newly engaged to the love of my life and planning a wedding for early next year, I don’t have time to deal with pain. Someone in their early 20’s should not experience the pain I endured. In addition to having headaches 3 to 4 times a week, I suffered from horrible tightness and stiff pain in my neck and shoulders.
It all started suddenly years ago when I was in college. I was under a lot of stress and started to get occasional migraines. These random migraines eventually became severe tension headaches that would come every week. If I didn’t have a headache, there would always be a dull aching pain in my head, neck and shoulders.
I couldn’t focus and it became so hard for me to concentrate at work. During the school week, I work on my lesson plans a little each night so I am fully prepared for upcoming weeks. Instead of being productive, I would come home and take a nap. As a result, I’d end up working on lesson plans all weekend just to catch up. My social life didn’t exist. I constantly had to cancel plans with friends because I felt so uncomfortable.
Eventually, I sought out help from a Chiropractor and it worked. However, I had to stop seeing him due to schedule conflicts. Last month, Dynamic Health and Pain Management came to my school during Teacher Appreciation Month and offered my colleagues and I a free consultation to their office. I was in such pain when they screened me, I booked an appointment immediately.
I was having headaches and neck pain because I had lost the entire curve in my neck. It has been just over a month since I started treatment with Dynamic Health and Pain Management and I feel like a whole new person. I have learned so much about what caused my pain and how to keep it from coming back. This was the long-term fix I had been looking for. I am able to be my old self again and focus on what’s most important to me, like my fiancé and my upcoming wedding.”
