For the past 23 years, it has been my pleasure to help hundreds of people achieve better health through NUCCA Chiropractic care.
Many of my patients have asked me to write down some of the stories about the "chiropractic miracles" that happen on a daily basis in my office. I share this one today in the hope that it will inspire and awaken many of you who have given up or resigned yourselves to the "normal aches and pains" of life.
A 25 year old man was lying on a raft in his apartment complex pool. While turning his head to talk to a neighbor, he felt a tingling and numbing sensation in his left shoulder and neck.
He got out of the pool and went into his apartment to call his family doctor.
While on the phone, his speech became slurred, and all he heard was the doctor's receptionist saying, "Sir, I can't understand what you're saying."
After hanging up the phone, he felt the tingling and numbness move into his upper left leg.
Soon after, the sensation traveled into his lower leg, then into his foot, and then disappeared.
The next few weeks were spent getting medical testing. They took enough blood to start his own personal blood bank, and enough x-rays to light a city. EEG, EKG, CAT scans, and blood work all showed nothing wrong.
The young man was told that he was probably suffering from stress and/or an early mid-life crisis, and should just "take it easy" or "learn to live with it."
He was given pain medicine, but taking half of a pill caused him to feel like a magnet was pulling his head to the ground. He decided that living with headaches and neck spasms was preferable to how the pill made him feel.
He spent the next few months with intermittent neck spasms, head "jolts," and the uncertainty of when the next symptom would strike. If you've ever lived waiting for the next symptom to strike, you know that it keeps you from doing your daily activities, and from living your life.
Fortunately, this young man's brother was under the care of the local NUCCA chiropractor. NUCCA is the abbreviation for the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association, which is a specialized, gentle, and specific health care approach to body balance and wellness. His brother said, "You're going to my chiropractor if I have to pick you up, put you in the car, drive you there, and pay for it."
On the first visit, the NUCCA doctor asked, "Has anyone ever looked at your head and neck alignment?" The doctor explained that accidents, injuries, and wear and tear can cause the body to mis-align. This misalignment will put pressure on the nerves that run from the neck into the head, and can cause symptoms like headaches and neck spasms, as well as other health problems.
The doctor detected a head, neck, and hip imbalance, and took x-rays that measured the degree of misalignment. She then gently corrected the position of his upper neck, which was done so gently that the young man thought, "You have got to be kidding me- this feels like nothing has been done."
Immediately following the correction, the young man felt a warmth and relief in his neck, shoulder, arm, and into his left leg, and he realized that something had definitely been done. When he got home, his body felt the need for a nap, which his NUCCA doctor later explained was due to his body's release of tension and pressure.
His body was saying, "I don't have to work overtime anymore- goodnight."
During the next month, in addition to his symptoms being gone, the young man was thrilled to have his energy, strength, and sense of well-being restored. He was so excited about his results that his NUCCA doctor suggested that he consider going to Chiropractic College to become a chiropractor, which he decided to do.
The young man's name is Dr. Brad Hirschhorn, and this is my story. I became a NUCCA Chiropractor because I was so amazed at my "miracle" results that I wanted to help others experience the benefits for themselves.
While I am unable to guarantee a cure for specific symptoms or diseases, I do guarantee that when your body is free of nerve interference it will work better.
Everyone deserves to enjoy the miracle of better health.
