What were your main health challenges prior to receiving chiropractic care? How long have you experienced these health challenges?
I have had back, stomach and neck problems for over 15 years. After having my first children, a set of triplets, I gained weight, had stomach problems and chronic neck and shoulder pain. Due to the pressure of the pregnancy on my ligaments, joints, and bones, I struggled with pain in all areas of life. The impact of the changes on my body caused me to struggle to sit, raise my arms over my head and bend in all directions.
How did your health challenges hinder your daily activities?
It was a struggle to sit at my desk and use the computer. I experienced tingling in my fingers, as well as, had difficulty putting on my clothes. My shoulders would not cooperate and pain would occur immediately. I also experienced stomach issues and IBS all related to chronic stress.
