I have enjoyed going to the chiropractor. I remember in high school and college that chiropractic care helped me significantly with several sports injuries, but it had been several years since I had seen a chiropractor. In the last few years, I had noticed that my range of motion with bending over and moving my neck while doing my favorite activities like dancing, had become more limited. During the pandemic, I also became more concerned I was sitting too much and not moving around enough. I was wondering if it might be affecting my spinal health. Then a few months ago, it became noticeable that it was affecting me. I started experiencing pain in my hip, and it was difficult to sit and sleep. After a weekend where the pain significantly increased, I immediately decided I needed to find a chiropractor. I researched chiropractors in the neighborhood and found Knecht Chiropractic and they had good reviews. When I contacted them for an appointment, I was thrilled that they were able to get me in the same day for an assessment.
After the assessment, Dr. B thoroughly went over my results and helped me understand the diagnosis behind my problem areas and the treatment that would help improve them. While I thought my hips were my problem area, I learned that I had military neck which is an abnormal curve of the cervical spine that causes you to look like you're “standing at attention.” When I heard that I was worried something was seriously wrong and could not be treated. It certainly explained my neck pain. Dr. B reassured me it could be treated.
Over the course of three months, I did an aggressive treatment of adjustments, posture-pump, physical therapy, and deep-tissue massage. Within a few weeks, I started to see the difference. About halfway through the treatment process, I was impressed by the range of motion of my neck with no pain. I couldn't believe it! Deep-tissue massage also made a significant difference. David and I were able to target specific areas of my body and release tension that it has been holding for a long time (probably for years.) My more tense areas have become relaxed, which has helped the rest of my body hold less tension. I noticed less headaches, along with more excitement and flexibility to do stretches (this is also thanks to physical therapy and adjustments.) By the end, I felt and saw a significant improvement in my neck, hips, and spine. I no longer felt limited to do the activities that I love.
Through this treatment plan, I really got to know the wonderful staff at Knecht Chiropractic. A massive thank you to Brandi, Donna, Dylan, David, and Dr. B!! They are warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and compassionate people. I also love that we share a few good laughs. I am excited to continue my journey with them. I highly recommend Knecht Chiropractic for all your chiropractic needs!
