Physically Fit 57 year old

Dear Dr. Vanderslice,

I am a vigorous 57 years old with general good health and an active lifestyle. I have been physically active and aerobically fit, all of my adult life, hiking, jogging, biking, playing soccer and racquetball, practicing yoga, etc. occasional weight training and generally considered in excellent shape and physically fit by my friends and acquaintances. However, in the summer of 2003 I began to experience pain in my upper back.

A Nurses Perspective

Dear Dr. Vanderslice

I am writing this letter for two reasons: first to thank you for restoring my health and secondly to endorse your chiropractic services. Please share this letter with others, as you deem appropriate. As you will recall (how could you forget), I came to see you on January 19, 2001. I was not unfamiliar with chiropractic services, having received chiropractic care on a limited basis the year before. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the thoroughness with which you approached my complaints of low and mid back pain and neck pain. I attributed this pain, in part, to my “bionic” hip and to a fall in November. I was impressed; both as a consumer and as a nurse with the thorough history you obtained from me prior to the exam as well as the exam itself. During the course of the exam, you found my blood pressure substantially elevated (180/90). You quite appropriately referred me to my personal physician who encouraged me to follow the treatment plan you had established for me to monitor my blood pressure (which you did at each visit).

The Carpal Tunnel in My Hand…..

Dear Dr. Vanderslice:

When I first began chiropractic care several years ago, it was due to a back injury. At that time my family doctor had given me a prescription for pain killers and muscle relaxants, with orders to spend 2 weeks in bed. Knowing I didn’t want to take time off from work for two weeks and that I would not be a very good bed patient, I decided to see a chiropractor. My decision was further influenced by the education you had been giving me while you were in chiropractic school. My treatment brought immediate relief from the constant pain, and I was able to continue working without pain killers and muscle relaxants. I stayed on my treatment plan to facilitate the healing process.

I sought … neurologist, two orthopedic surgeons, two physical therapists and an acupuncturist.

For the past two years I have lived with intense chronic pain in my lower back. This pain was generated from a displaced sacra-iliac joint – the result of a series of accidental falls I had experienced over the last twenty-five years.

Over the last two year period, I sought professional help from a neurologist, two orthopedic surgeons, two physical therapists and an acupuncturist. All of these professionals were well intended, but not one of them could ease my pain permanently.

A Nurses Eczema and Latex Allergies Gone!

Dear Dr. Vanderslice,

I want to thank you for all you’ve done for me this past year. After suffering from chronic back pain for the past 6 years, I began to accept the fact I would just have to live with it. Being highly skeptical of chiropractic care, it was not an option for me. After much persuasion from my husband, I agreed to see a chiropractor.

After two weeks of treatment with you I felt 110% better. I am back to running 2-3 miles 3 times a week. The difference is remarkable. I never realized how much pain I was living with until it was gone. I stand corrected. I honestly feel chiropractic care has improved my quality of life.

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis but now…..

Dear Dr. Vanderslice,

I want to thank you for changing my life. Nearly one year ago I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. At thirty seven I was energetic, very active with my three children, happy with my life, my relationships and my faith. Within months all that changed.

I became very angry, depressed and unable to function due to chronic pain, vision loss, balance loss, and extreme fatigue. I gained over thirty pounds. I was on medications and I was giving up on everything in my life including my marriage and faith.

One adustment … I can breath a lot better.

Dear Dr. Vanderslice,

I am writing to thank you for all you have done for me over the last 7-8 months. Going back to work for the first time in 5 years was hard, but being on my feet the entire time has been the hardest. I don’t know how I could’ve made it without my weekly visits to you! Your attention to my neck, feet and wrists have been especially appreciated. I virtually have no more headaches and no more symptoms of Carpal Tunnel! Now, thanks to you, I have very little pain when I wear high heels.

I am 12 years old and….

Dear Dr. Vanderslice,

I am 12 years old and I like chiropractors because they make me feel better when I have a cold or am sick. They make me feel good and get well. If someone wasn’t using chiropractic I would tell them to start because it keeps you from spending lots of money to go to the doctor and take drugs or pulls, which can do more harm then good. And it feels good to be straight and know your bones are aligned. Coming here has helped me feel better and stay healthy. It also helps when I am sick but chiropractic keeps you from getting sick but if you do come down with something they help you get better and get over it.

My training for a marathon….

Dear Dr. Vanderslice:

I wanted to take a few minutes to express my gratitude for your professionalism, and expertise in the Chiropractic field, and where you have brought me personally and emotionally. Although I know it is your job and professional duty to provide me with the best care you know how, I feel you go beyond with a genuine care for your patients as you have demonstrated to me this past year.

After living with this sciatica pain for two years…

Dear Dr. Vanderslice,

I sought chiropractic care because of constant sharp pain in my mid-section that worked its way down my left leg. After living with this sciatica pain for two years, I was referred to Dr. Vanderslice by a family friend. The care provided by Dr. Vanderslice allowed me to function normally again. I live now pain free. Living with pain for two years made me uptight. The little things life throws you began to affect me. Dr. Vanderslice gave me the best personal care. He worked with me until the pain was gone. I am grateful to have my life back.
