Low back pain, neck pain and radiating arm and leg pain are usually treated with surgery, and that’s why a lot of people are afraid to go and see a specialist. Unfortunately, ignoring such problems, won’t make them go away. On the contrary, they will only get worse. I was one of these people who suffered from severe back pain, and I postponed seeing an expert because I was so afraid of surgery. But what I didn’t know at the time was that fact that there’s always another solution much more comfortable and maybe more efficient as well. I am talking about spinal decompression which turned out miraculous in my case.
What happened after
I had been experiencing neck and back pain for more than three years. Initially, my neck was becoming stiff only on particular occasions, and the pain was quite mild at the beginning. But, unfortunately, I began losing range of motion, and the pain level was continually increasing. I reached the point where I was not able to move my head to left or right without feeling a horrifying pain. Of course, this also triggered massive anxiety as well. At my friend’s recommendation, I made an appointment to the Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic to see a certain Dr. Raphael.
The First Appointment
The first time I saw Dr. Ramy Raphael, I was terrified of what he might tell me and of the potential solution, even if I knew that this clinic used alternative therapy and treatments. After the doctor reviewed my X-rays, he indicated the fact that I was a good candidate for Spinal Decompression Therapy. I didn’t know what that was until that day, but the only thing I was thinking about was the fact that I’m glad that it was a non-surgical option. I have to admit that the decompression machine was a bit intimidating at first, but Dr. Raphael explained the whole process and provided all the necessary information to make me feel comfortable. By the end of the session, I found that this machine was really refreshing and relaxing.
I have been seeing Dr. Raphael for four months now, and I can tell you that I have seen surprising results since I first began my Decompression Therapy. After all this time I recovered all my range of motion, and I’m no longer in pain. I can’t even describe the amazing feeling to be able to move without hurting all over the place. My mental stated has also improved thanks to the lack of physical pain. My posture is again what it used to be, and overall, my life quality is much better.
Before going to this clinic, I didn’t think that all of this would be possible especially without surgery. Dr. Ramy Raphael is an experienced chiropractor, and he has been working with the chiropodist Ottawa Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic since 2013. Besides being a Diversified Chiropractor, he is a Graston Technique provider, an Acupuncture Provider, and he intensively uses Deep Myofascial Release Technique, Trigger Point Therapy, Dry Needling, and Dynamic Joint Mobilization. He also uses Shockwave Therapy and designs custom-made orthotics.
