After 15 years of trying physical therapy, massages and chiropractic care, Krista met relief from her chronically thrown out back from scoliosis with holistic care. AFC Physical Medicine and Chiropractic brought chiropractic treatment, massages and physical medicine together with integrative medicine, and Krista can finally stand up straight and exercise safely.
For the last 15 years, I've been struggling with scoliosis. And so it's come and gone over the years, but I was prone to throwing out my back completely once a year, and I spent much of the last year with a lot of debilitating pain. I wasn't able to work out. When I first came here, I couldn't even stand completely straight. I was kind of crooked over to the side, so I was in pretty rough shape. Over the last 15 years, I've done a lot of things. I've seen chiropractors, I've gone to physical therapy, I've done massages. I've tried to treat it at home, but I think unfortunately none of those things were ever combined together and so I would hit one aspect of the problem and receive some relief, but because it wasn't comprehensive, I never was able to really fully overcome what was going on.
I think the very first appointment, I felt some pretty substantial relief. And then after two weeks, it was hugely different. And then it's been about six or seven months now and I'm pain-free, injury free. I'm working out again, I feel a hundred percent better. It's been outstanding. Everybody is so caring and friendly. I feel like they really know me and know my needs and concerns, and everything has been very individualized to my concerns, and so I am so appreciative for all that they've done. I feel like everybody's always friendly and welcoming. It's really a warm, organized, great place to be.
