I wanted to share my success story so that other people wouldn’t have reservations about seeking chiropractic care. You see, I’m a 63 year old, retired construction worker, with a long history of trauma. I fell off of a roof in the mid 1970’s, causing major trauma to my lower spine, however I sought no chiropractic help at the time.
Compounding the problem was the 20 plus years of running 5-6 miles daily and working in the heavy construction industry. My 1st total left hip replacement was in 1997 followed by my right being replaced in 2013. In 2014 I had to have a 2nd replacement of my left hip. I was experiencing constant moderate to severe lower back pain.
I have been a patient of Dr. Surkosky’s for approximately 7 weeks now and I am pretty much pain free. Just a little soreness and stiffness in the morning and that too is getting better everyday.
I am dedicated to getting better and do my exercises faithfully. I appreciate all the helpful staff and would recommend Care Chiropractic to anyone.
I have been a patient of Dr. Surkosky for a long time. He has treated me for everything ranging from sports injuries to workman’s compensation. The most memorable is when I had an accident at work.
I had been working a 14 hour shift when I fell down the first flight of stairs while leaving the building. My foot landed wrong causing me to fall down the remaining 3 steps while my left ankle wrapped around my right, landing underneath me in the end. Upon advising work of my fall I was told to go the emergency room nearby. I arrived home for someone to take me to the hospital since I was unsure if I would be able to drive myself. Per the doctors and x-rays, I had severely sprained my right ankle and my left was pretty bruised. The doctor directed that I elevate my leg, take medication, and they could give me crutches if needed. Work advised I needed to see another chiropractor covered by workman’s compensation. As I have had unfavorable experiences with other chiropractors, I chose to stay with Dr. Stu at my own expense.
My father’s wedding was 2 days after my fall and I could barely move. I saw Dr. Stu first thing in the morning the following day. Within the 1st visit I was able to feel relief and even able to put on normal shoes for the wedding. With Dr. Stu’s help and guidance, I was able to enjoy my father’s wedding relatively pain free and on the dance floor with my family.
I began going to Care Chiropractic for neck and upper back problems. At the same time, I had severe pain in my right knee that caused me to walk down the stairs sideways and had been referred for an MRI by an orthopedic specialist that showed significant arthritis. I had not brought my knee condition to Dr. Stu’s attention because, to me, the two conditions seemed unrelated. Over the course of receiving treatment at Care Chiropractic, not only did my neck and upper back problems resolve, but my right knee improved 90% or more. I can walk down stairs normally now and declined any treatment with the orthopedic doctor.
