"In one week...no pain and full movement of my arms & head."
When I first made an appointment for treatment I had a pinched nerve in my left shoulder and constant pain and/or tightness between my shoulder blades. I couldn't turn my head from side to side without pain. I have been to doctors for several years off & on. They would tell me that my problem was from sitting at a desk and working on a computer for many years. They would prescribe muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatories and even rehab. Nothing ever solved the problem. In one week with Dr. Tolopka I had no pain and full movement of my arms and head. I can also bend over and touch the ground with no pain in my back.
" ...our kids getting sick all the time is not normal."
I tell this story so that those of you who don't know the benefits of Chiropractic will realize that even those of us who do sometimes don't realize exactly what and who benefits from the extraordinary healing power of the body that Chiropractic brings.
My first son was born six weeks early and after two hours of pushing the decision was made to use forceps to remove him. After his birth, I, of course, having knowledge of chiropractic continued (I used Chiropractic all through my pregnancy) care for myself and soon felt great. I took care of my subluxations, but never thought about subluxations my son had from his traumatic entrance into this world.
My son was going to his pediatrician so often for colds, fevers, ear infections, and colic. Within his first year of life he was using a nebulizer for bronchial type conditions and all sorts of medications. His pediatrician had even suggested tubes in his ears! He wasn't even one year old! Right before he turned one, he had diarrhea that wouldn't stop and a culture showed that he had a bacteria in his intestines that children never get and rarely adults get. The doctor said the cause was all the medications, and his immune system couldn't fight it.
As a mother you can imagine the guilt I felt for putting this garbage in his system for him to suffer so much. Immediately, I realized there was a better, safer way. I have worked for Chiropractors for years, and as a new parent I had bypassed what I knew, letting the pediatrician decide what to do with our child. I have seen the positive results for years and I knew what to do. I am just sorry I didn't do it sooner.
Tyler began receiving adjustments immediately and was put on particular vitamins (against the pediatricians advice, it was his opinion that they would not help). I tell you that to this day the only time Tyler has required a trip to see his pediatrician is for vaccinations. Tyler is now six years old.
I am not suggesting that your child shouldn't see a pediatrician, but I am suggesting that as a parent you are responsible to look into all options whether they are given to you by your doctor or not. We all know if something is working or not. If our kids are getting sick all the time that is not normal. It is also not normal to keep putting drugs in our children. Even when its against the pediatricians advice to seek help from chiropractic, you know what's best for your kids. Children should and can be healthy.
"My relief came very early in my treatment."
I was having chronic neck pain. At least one episode a month of a stiff neck with sharp pain, and more frequent less severe pain. I thought that if the severe pain was not continuous then it would always go away in a few days when it does occur. After about 18 months of this, I had an episode that was intolerable. This prompted me to seek help. I came straight to Chiropractic. Due to a prior positive experience with Chiropractic, I was comfortable that this was the avenue to take. My relief came very early in my treatment. But knowing that it took a long time to develop my problem, I knew that fixing (correcting) the problem would take longer than just gaining relief. (I chose to correct the problem.)
My family is very happy with my improved disposition. Pain associated with the back and neck can affect many aspects of your life. It's good to know about the benefits of Chiropractic.
" ...it has changed how I will approach wellness..."
I had suffered with back pain & headaches for about 2 months. When my symptoms became a "10" on the scale I had to do something about it. After seeing my family physician and an internal medicine doctor, I gradually got worse and had increased pain.
My wife's parents were going to see Dr. Carl and they suggested I make an appointment. Not only did my pain significantly reduce in 3 visits, I felt better overall. Dr. Carl explained to me about subluxations and why I was having my problem. Because of the education Dr. Carl gave me about my spine, it has changed how I will approach wellness and medical treatments in the future. What a learning experience.
" our visits to Fort Bend Chiropractic were great fun..."
My symptoms first began in 1988. I had severe back problems. I went to my family physician and an orthopedist. My problem was dismissed as age related. My pain level was about an 8. Dr. Carl explained that subluxations was the root cause.
My wife also had back problems and we sought help from Dr. Carl. He took command of our situations in a professional, highly competent and very friendly way. We went through the diagnosis process and were told exactly what our problems were. We then embarked on a chiropractic program.
Our back problems began to immediately improve and it wasn't very long before they all but disappeared. In addition, I had a one leg shorter than the other and it decreased immeasurably with my adjustments.
One more thing. We thought our visits to Fort Bend Chiropractic were great fun, too. And that says a lot about Dr. Carl's professional abilities as well as his personality.
Our experiences with Dr. Carl were so positive that we feel we can offer this advice: Don't suffer with problems associated with the spine. You don't have to walk around the rest of your life telling people you have a nagging back problem, or your spine is out of whack, or that it hurts to turn your neck. Se e the good doctor and watch your life change for the better fast!

"...Dr. Carl worked miracles on me."
On May 31st I was involved in a serious automobile accident at the intersection of Hwy 90 & Hwy 6. I suffered some cuts & bruises, but the most serious of my injuries was a concussion and subluxations which affected my balance and me dizzy. I began seeing Dr. Carl within 5 days of the accident. Dr. Carl gave me a complete set of X-rays and ordered an MRI.
Once I had been fully assessed, we began treatment. After 3 appointments I began to experience relief from the soreness & stiffness. It has been two months since the accident and my balance is nearly completely restored.
My overall experience with Fort Bend Chiropractic & Rehab has been great and Dr. Carl has worked miracles on me.
