About a month ago, I experienced sudden, excruciating lower back pain. It was, in fact, the worst pain I've ever had in my life. Sitting, standing and lying down were extremely uncomfortable and standing upright proved to be difficult. I self-medicated myself with Tylenol and heating pads, but nothing worked.
Fortunately, a family friend saw how much pain I was in and referred me to Spector Chiropractic. I had never been to a chiropractor and, to be honest, was a little skeptical. I also was desperate to relieve and treat the pain I was in, so I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Spector right away.
Everyone-the office staff, Jen, Dr. Spector and Dr. April - was welcoming and friendly the moment I walked through the door. They particularly took extra care as I was evaluated and had X-rays taken. Bending and standing upright was extremely painful, and the staff was very patient as I slowly moved around.
Hours and a second visit later, I was diagnosed with herniated discs in my L-4 to L-5 vertebrae. Dr Spector sat down with me and explained everything from my X-rays to my condition to my treatment plan. I could just tell from the way he talked to me that he was genuinely concerned and empathetic, and willing to do anything to make me feel better.
Within a week of my initial visit, my back was feeling 98% with no pain and very little discomfort. A week after that, I was feeling 100% and back to doing my normal activities. My experience with Dr. Spector and his staff certainly turned me from a skeptic to a supporter of chiropractic.
Words cannot express the appreciation I have for the staff at Spector Chiropractic. Not only have they "cured" me of my back pain, but they have treated me as well as if I were a member of their family. The staff has shown genuine concern for my health and well being, and has encouraged me during every step of my treatment plan. For that I am truly grateful.
