I’ve lived with chronic lower back and neck pain for the past three years, because of the pain it was difficult to make my bed, vacuum, play with my children and to put on my own shoes.
I had a minor slip on the ice driving one days and a week later I couldn’t walk, who knew just a slight sudden movement could cause me severe pain. I ended up in Urgent Care, the doctor on call said I was having muscle spasms, so he prescribed me a muscle relaxer and pain pills. Well the muscle relaxer made me lethargic and unable to function and the pain pill just upset my stomach, so in other words I was still in pain and unable to function normally.
My neighbor Mary, works for Dr. McKay and insisted that I come into the office for consultation. I was pleased I was able to get an appointment the same day. When I walked into the office, the staff was so kind and saw I was in pain and made me feel as comfortable as they possibly could. I had x-rays, consultation and treatment plan established that day. Come to find out that I have degenerative joint disease, old fractures to my L4 and L5 and some previous injury to my neck as well. Dr. McKay was confident he could make me more comfortable and enjoy my life again. The first week I felt 50% better, I received back and neck adjustments and stim treatments and after a month I felt like a million bucks.
When I walk into the office everyone greets you by name like you are a VIP. I continue to go according to my treatment plan and continue to make improvements. I am so grateful to Dr. McKay, Dr. Travis, Marie, Jess, Mary and Cynthia, you all truly saved my life.
